One of the things that the study showed up is that engineers are very aware of the need to take charge of their own training and do it in their own time. The anecdotal evidence was given that in China many engineers are not allowed access to the Internet at work. But that they seek out webinars and self-training opportunities online in their evenings.

Career development needs to be taught at Universities and Colleges. It's no longer enough to look after our jobs, we have to actively develop our careers, even if it means moving jobs short-term for the long-term benefit. Unfortunately some engineering jobs are a career dead-end, and engineers need to be able to recognise these; and CEO's and HR Managers of companies also need to be more aware of developing their people and not just focussing on the product.
