Engineering is considered as one of the most popular form of post secondary education – as it’s more than just another post secondary degree – it’s also considered as a full fledged, not to mention lucrative vocational degree. The career of an engineer rests upon his/her ability to apply technical knowledge/skills to solve real problems. So the more proficient you are in applying your skills to solve real time problems for firms, the more successful will you be in your career.
