The USA has been invested a lot in engineering research. It is the first to send men to the moon, create atomic bomb to end World War II, to build cross-continental railway and inter-state paved road, to innovate the first computer and to change the world into Information Technology. The US is the leader in Engineering in many other aspects as well. For example, biochemical, petroleum, environment, medical and mining.
Universities in the USA offer tons of Engineering programs from Bachelor’s to Doctorate’s degrees. Admissions and costs differ from one to one university. So please choose well (IDP can help)
Classmates are diverse with white, black, tan, and yellow skin-colors. Asian students has reputation as smart students. Noteworthy, numbers of women in Engineering is increasing, particularly in Environment, Bio-medical, and Chemical.
Engineer is in high demand in the USA. It is almost guaranteed that every graduate would get a job offer. The salary is quite extraordinary compare to other fields as well as to those of in other countries. The average annual salary is USD 50,000 – 100,000 (Bachelor’s degree).
Furthermore, the practical training visa (STEM) is 2 years, instead of 1 year, for Engineering graduate to stay and work in the USA. In addition, the US government is at ease to issue working visa to Engineering position. This means it is less headache for the employer to recruit and process working visa for foreigners who has a degree in Engineering.
The reason American does not like to learn or to be an Engineer could be that the value of being a CEO or management is much greater than to be an Engineer. Studying Engineering is more difficult. Moreover, Math and manual skill, required for being an Engineer, are not what American good at.
