"The point of engineering research is to improve our capacity to solve problems. As long as humanity has problems—and we currently have a great deal of them—engineers have the best job security and career outlook. My sub-field, computer engineering, is currently generating a fantastic amount of innovation. The smartphone in everyone’s pockets nowadays is just the tip of the iceberg."
