Field of Engineering in 2019
Engineering; a field of study which is highly sought after for several decades. However, with the advancement in technology and the arrival of the world of augmented reality, the field of engineering is changing exponentially. As always, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education is highly emphasised at kindergarten level in order to build interest in children from a young age. However, at higher levels, unlike a few decades ago, engineering is becoming more focused on skill-based learning rather than foundation theoretical learning. This is because the advancement of technology is continually increasing which is why students need to be equipped with the understanding of the latest technologies, rather than on theory or method to invent something. Moreover, with technology and engineering merging together, earning an accredited degree in Engineering becomes even more importance. In this field, the more experience you’ve had and the more you know about the latest technology, the faster you climb your career ladder!
