1. A variety of career options

Engineers require a high level of skill, knowledge, and competence to be licensed. As a result, many employers recognize the benefits of employing skilled Engineers. Furthermore, licensed Engineers can work in various fields of study and industries. A degree in Engineering can also serve as a starting point to expand into business, medicine, design, law, and other sectors. Due to the high level of respect that licensed Engineers command, they can expect to attract plenty of career options.

In Canada, entry-level Engineers will start earning around $50,000 a year. On the other hand, Senior Engineers can earn more than $100,000 per year.

3. Work with other passionate Engineers

Engineering is often a team effort that requires experts from various fields and backgrounds. This means that Engineers will collaborate with many different people to successfully complete a project. Therefore, working as an Engineer will allow you to join forces with other passionate, talented, and inspiring individuals.

4. A chance to innovate

Engineers have the chance to stretch their talents and imagination when facing unique problems that require creative solutions. The engineering field is at the forefront of innovation and greatly influences how society advances. Engineers are in a position to use their understanding of math, science, and available knowledge to create something new and spectacular. Simply put, you’ll never be bored as an Engineer.

5. Improving the lives of others

As a result of their ability to innovate, Engineers often have the opportunity to make a real impact on the lives of people around the world. Engineers provide solutions to problems that face the world, from combatting climate change, improving communication technologies, or even advancing healthcare. Therefore, those who pursue a career path in Engineering will have the opportunity to make an impact – from local communities, countries, and beyond.
