"you are right that today electrical engineering is all about different softwares like AUTOCAD , Netsim, Boson etc but not having the deep knowledge and just knowing these softwares can make you successfull but one cant be a good electrical engineer without having deep understanding of all the workings etc"

Debara, since there is no coding nothing to worry. peripheral usage knowledge is sufficient to play around.

Yes Nelso things and trends are definitely changing every now and then we come across different MIT students either working on different projects or trying to invent or innovate something.

All good points; many educators have reversed the trend with revised curricula, in an effort to improve the engineers they are delivering to industry.

Nelso I do remember the times when universities produced just theoratical engineers but now the trand is changing and more and more practicle and innovative engineers are comming into the market because universities give them free hand to there creativity innovation etc which is one of the basic requirement .

Yes Charles you are absolutely correct I have come across soo many engineers who themselves took the initiative to learn the soft skills and I myself is one of them. I donno why in past engineers were not at all good in thete communication but I am glad that now we are getting awareness that no matterwe are engineer doctor or journalist our soft skills should be good because this is actually the key to success .

Chuck there are many things we engineer dont learn during our universities or schooling the major part we learn is during our professional lives , experiences etc . Because entering in to practicle lives help us gain experience and hand on on different things and issues .

Naperlou , you are absolutely correct it was a time when engineers were not good in communicating there ideas and thoughts and they usually had to ask someone to write there ideas or projects . But now Communication has become a basic skill in every profession even there are technical writers students who have done engineering have taken the profession of technical writing which involves communicating the thoughts of engineers on paper or reports.

Battar , programming is not the main or the core part of electrical engineering but  E engineers are required to write softwares when working with microcontrollers , motors and switching systems etc .

For an electrical engineer his physics should be strong as we know that this engineering is all about electromagnetic forces , wavelenghts etc so to be a good electrical engineer one should have strong concepts of physics .

As additive manufacturing (including 3D printing) becomes increasingly popular among businesses as a quick and easy solution to creating and evaluating prototypes and end-use products, the debate about whether to outsource production or to purchase equipment for in-house use is at the forefront of industry discussions.
With increasing terrorist threats overseas, organizations are thinking about how best to defend themselves here and abroad. Engineering can play a role, especially when it comes to putting a barrier between yourself and the bad guys.
Time to market is everything, but at the same time, you can’t sacrifice quality for speed. That’s where additive manufacturing comes into play.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
Feature-advantage-benefit could help engineers in how we approach design problems, how we sell our ideas to management, and how we market ourselves when it comes to jobs.
