The only way I believe there is a shortage of engineers in a free market economy is if its price rises. Someone show me some data that demonstrates this? Or is the price of an engineer supply/demand insensitive?
Conversely if you increase supply then the price falls, for a given demand. Gee, that could be useful for all those employers bleating about engineer shortages.
I agree. I used to tell my people that the only real function of management was to remove the obstacles that prevent engineers from getting the job done. If they could not do that, then they served no purpose.
Just my opinion.
We would have plenty of engineers if we gave them just a small fraction of the addulation that sports figures get. Talk about a backward society where physical freaks get more money and press time than the people who really make the world work and advance with technology.
Just my opinion,
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
