Exactly! Imagine! A world without engineers? Pretty normal? Would the world be the same? Oh come on, this world may not even be livable without engineers.
Exactly! Imagine! What would our world be like without engineers? Pretty normal? Would the world be the same? Oh come on, this world may not even be livable without engineers. Imagine, if there were no Engineers, there would be no one to design the bridges you drive through. If there were no engineers, there would be no cars. If there were no engineers there would be no video game designers to support your lazy-ass games. If there were no engineers how could you even “like” this post from the internet? Better yet, if there were no engineers, there would be no electricity in your area right now. I bet you didn’t realize, but almost every mechanical, electrical, structural body in your house or even neighborhood is run by engineers.
Engineering is one of the broadest fields of Science. It is subdivided into many divisions such as Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Agricultural Engineering and the list goes on and on. The responsibilities of an engineer is undeniably very crucial in any part of the world. Unfortunately since it is the broadest, it is also one of the most difficult to understand. A lot of people don’t even know exactly what an engineer does, and this results in a shortage of people studying this field of Science.
These pictures may be a bit too farfetched, but they speak for themselves. But if engineering really has an important role in our world, then why are the number of people studying them getting lesser and lesser? There are a lot of factors that are inducing the shortage of engineers in our world. First is the most common, people don’t really understand what an engineer does. Some people even think that engineers are the people responsible for repairing vending machines. Some children think engineers are the people who drive “choo-choo” trains. These ideas were instilled onto a lot of people as kids. But if students, especially high school students are properly guided by their professors on what engineering really is and, what the different roles of engineers are in the community, then they would have a better understanding of what the engineering field is all about. Who knows they might want to take an engineering course in the university.

Another reason why people don’t invest themselves in the field of engineering is because, it doesn’t make you rich fast enough. A lot of people would rather spend their time taking up their MBA’s and open up a business. After all, business is the fastest way to make money.
Engineering is definitely a necessary profession in every part of the world. If people would understand the scope of engineering and its effect to our world today, there might not be any shortages. Engineers nowadays need to be given the right credit they deserve, so they themselves see their worth and importance as engineers.
A world without engineers can harm the environment, world without engineers can harm progress, world without engineers can harm economy, world without engineers can harm healthcare
