This quote: "The overriding goal is not domain knowledge, especially as a young engineer, it's about developing world-class skills -- first and foremost problem solving. If you become known as an exceptional problem solver, you will find a place in most organizations, in a variety of roles where you can enjoy what you are doing day-to-day and have a positive impact on the world around you."

Spot on. Engineering is a great profession for those who are passionate about it, and by college age, they already know who they are. We need more passionate engineers in the US, not fewer. I don't buy for a minute the doomsday scenario, although if we insist enough on it, it might just become a self-fulfilling profecy.

Of course, people who aren't passionate typically don't put up with the schoolwork, so there's no need to dissuade them.

While I accept the general premise of Dr. Kevin Ilcisin on engineering as a profession, I would not recommend that in the US to my children. I realize there are counter opinions on this... my obvious reason for the advise is the job market.

I have never regretted my choice to be an engineer, a multidisciplinary one at that. It has been fulfilling but not necessarily (financially) rewarding!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
