It was reported in today's Straits Times that among the top CEOs of listed companies in Singapore, a majority were trained in Engineering. 'Top' in this context means top in salary, needless to say.

This result is not surprising, given the problem-solving skills, deep thinking and planning skills that this faculty provides. Logical thinking, a step by step approach, solving problems under tight deadlines, planning; all these are skills necessary in Engineering and which are nevertheless used and applied similarly to solve life and business problems.

Thus it is no wonder a good Engineer who is able to apply his skills outside his own faculties can do wonders in his life and succeed in his work too, regardless of the line of work he choose to do in life.
