Industries to Watch: Engineering

The next time you're on your way to catch a flight, think about the amount of work necessary to make your trip happen. Someone had to create the engine system that powers the car you're taking to the airport. Another person designed the roads and bridges you drive on to reach the airport, which someone created to keep passengers safely and happily inside while planes arrive at their gates. Not to mention the planes themselves -- the engine, the electrical system, the seating: all perfected after years of design.

In each step of these processes, engineers were there.
