We’ve always known that the internet has made electrical engineering an increasingly important and diverse discipline, but the numbers behind it haven’t been fully appreciated.
And that is changing.
Electricity engineering is in the middle of a big change, and it’s going to be a big part of the future of the electrical engineering world.
The number of electrical engineering degrees awarded has increased by more than 50% in the last three years, according to the latest data from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
And according to a recent survey of more than 1,400 undergraduate and graduate electrical engineering students, the proportion of people in the U.S. who have studied electrical engineering more than doubled between 2014 and 2019.
The numbers are even higher among engineering degrees in general.
In 2019, more than 90% of engineering degrees went to students from non-engineering disciplines, up from 79% in 2014.
But there are more than 2,500 disciplines, which is a lot of work to do, and there are plenty of reasons for that.
In addition to the need for more people with technical backgrounds, electrical engineering is a discipline that has traditionally been a “white collar” discipline.
The number of people working in the field has decreased dramatically in recent years, and in many cases, there is a lack of technical diversity.
And, while there is more diversity among the electrical engineers than in other fields, it still lags behind the rest of engineering.
For example, the top five most popular occupations for electrical engineers in 2019 were electrical, computer, data center, information technology, and data management.
That’s down from eight in 2014, but there are a lot more people working for electrical companies in 2019 than there were in 2014:The other top five are computer support, financial management, software development, and product management.
While there are many reasons why the number of degrees awarded by electrical engineering schools has increased, the biggest one is the explosion of the internet.
In the past, there wasn’t much diversity in electrical engineering.
People from different backgrounds were not necessarily working together.
That changed when computers became ubiquitous.
Today, the most common job for people in electrical manufacturing is not the job they were working in a year ago, but rather the job that they are working in today.
In other words, there are lots of jobs in electrical fields that are now filled by a different set of people from electrical engineering graduates, which in turn is creating a larger pool of electrical engineers.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t other opportunities in the world of electrical and computer engineering.
There are people working at companies in electrical technology, data analysis, and cybersecurity.
And there are also people in other industries that are looking for electrical engineering positions, including aerospace engineers, industrial designers, and others.
So, the question becomes: Why are we investing so much in electrical and computing engineering?
There are a few reasons.
First, the number and variety of electrical technologies is increasing, with more people in industries such as electric vehicles, energy storage, and the internet of things all looking for positions.
So, there’s a need for electrical and computational engineers to keep up.
Second, there has been a huge increase in the number, size, and sophistication of academic research projects in the electrical and related fields.
And third, the demand for electrical education has been rising.
For example, there were fewer people studying electrical engineering in the 1970s than in the 1990s.
That has led to an explosion in the amount of courses offered by electrical and engineering schools, as well as in the breadth of research that is conducted.
Third, and most importantly, electrical and mechanical engineering has become increasingly focused on the internet, which has led many companies to look for ways to keep people from working remotely, including using mobile devices as office workers.
The demand for this type of job is expected to grow over time, as the internet continues to expand its reach and spread around the world.
So it makes sense to keep an eye on this trend and look for opportunities in electrical education and related industries.
