Vault’s article entitled “Electrical Engineering, Uppers and Downers” discusses the good and the bad points about electrical engineering. Research shows that most electrical engineers think they had a good profession choice, because they have fun in the work. This area is linked to technologies, which makes the job more interesting, because engineers can play and work in the same time. Moreover, they can go to conferences to learn about new technologies, and their companies pay them for that. The Internet is very important in this profession, because it streamline the exchange of information that gets better some products we use in our lives. The favorite work in this major area is designing equipment that we need, but there are other fields like infrastructure, or networking. Finally, a last upper is that everybody respects engineers who help advance in the age of globalization. A big problem of engineering is that the work always changes and the time becomes shorter. Searching for news abilities is needed because if the engineer knows some good skill today probably in a few years this skill is unnecessary. In conclusion, electrical engineering is a competitive field, principally in the USA, China and India, and you have to find harmony between the uppers and the downers.
The article “Electrical Engineering, Uppers and Downers”, from Vault, gives a good idea about this profession, because it shows the readers the pros and the cons about it. It is great to know that electrical engineers like their work. Also they would approve if their kids choose engineering. The author could give more examples about this job, like the initial salary, and the necessary skills. An important upper is the close relation between the Internet and Electrical Engineering, that’s make this task faster and updated. The profession is very respectful, which gives me more motivation to study this course. The principal weakness of Electrical Engineering is that it moves so fast, and you can lose some abilities in a short time. Moreover some companies are hiring engineers from other countries paying a low salary. However, Electrical engineers have a good wage, and the author does not quote this. Finally I liked the article because I could learn more about this beautiful work.
