Why earn a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering?

One of the primary reasons to become an electrical or computer engineer is to have a positive impact on society.  Today’s  engineers enjoy a robust salary and high employment rate, but they are also making the planet a better place by addressing important issues such as climate change, health care, hunger, and more.  “Engineers hold a powerful role in delivering societal solutions that can inspire technical and non-technical communities to innovate for a better future,” says IEEE president Dr. Moshe Kam, “and these solutions raise the standard of living, preserve finite resources, and protect the environment.”  As the video below shows, electrical engineers are crossing disciplines and industries to apply computing, technology, math and science to solve complex world problems.
