"Bapat said: "My advice to student engineers is to seek positions in companies that seek to compete with value-added differentiators – in quality, performance, functionality."

Fresh outs have big opportunities right now. All the large companies are eager to hire them. My advice is to find a good company with interesting work and keep learning. Don't be afraid to push the envelope and not do things their way just because they always have. If you push hard enough, they will either fire you or promote you. Either way, you grow.

In general, engineers are able to build. Question is what to build. It takes more than engineering to create a product and this is why founding a company typically takes more than 1 person. I agree with daleste. Young engineers shall try to pus the envelope because, really, you will learn a lot by +ve confirmation your idea or by making mistake. Fearless is priceless. ;)

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
