Constant changes in technology are revolutionizing the workforce, creating a high demand for engineers at above average salaries. This week, we celebrate engineers in the United States and strive to educate the future workforce about the advantages of engineering and technology careers as part of Engineer’s Week. Canada will take part in the efforts next month as part of National Engineering Month.
