AIC Campus Provide Access to American Universities thorough Global Engineering Transfer (GET) Program
There are a number of significant challenges in higher education today, including rising costs, diminishing returns. That being said, it’s not all bad news. In fact, there are a number of hopeful, emerging trends that promise to create new and expanded opportunities for students while fostering a healthier campus intellectual climate:
Increasing Number of Jobs for Graduates After the worst job market for young adults since the Great Depression, graduates finally have reason for optimism. Thanks to the aging of the Baby Boomers and their shift into retirement, the labor market is starting to open up for young people. According to The Wall Street Journal, incomes for the newest batch of graduates are now the highest in over a decade, while unemployment rates are falling quickly. Also, the National Association of Colleges and Employers reports that employers plan to hire 11% more graduates this year than last.
USA, the PreferredDestination for Overseas Students
Since the mid-20th century, the United States has been the destination of choice for international students. When pursuing education abroad, many are drawn by the quality of its higher education system, its welcoming culture, and the prospect of transitioning into the labor market after graduation. Although the U.S. share of the worldwide international student population has decreased in recent years, from 23 percent in 2000 to 19 percent in 2013, the number of international students enrolled in U.S colleges and universities has grown. In 2013, the United States hosted more of the world’s 4.1 million international students than any other country. The next two destinations, the United Kingdom and Australia, hosted 10 percent and 6 percent, respectively. International student enrollment in U.S. colleges and universities increased 10 percent between school year (SY) 2013-14 and SY 2014-15, the highest growth rate in 35 years, reaching a record high of 975,000 students.
Engineering Studies in USA
US Universities provide quality and high standard of education in Engineering and IT. Among overseas students enrolled in US Universities, over 40% follow Engineering and IT majors. Among the students from South Asia and Central Asia 72% follow STEM subjects.
From computer science to sustainable energies, robotics to aeronautics, and medical technology to intelligent building design – engineering degrees offer a huge range of specializations. Graduates of engineering degrees are in high demand across the globe, with developing and developed nations alike calling out for highly qualified specialists to keep their economies growing.
Most engineers specialize. There is a wide array of specialties and subspecialties. The Occupational Outlook Handbook describes the prominent engineering specialties. The largest number of engineers are employed as electrical and electronics engineers. Civil engineers, industrial engineers and mechanical engineers round out the four largest disciplines.One of the great things about engineering is that it can be applied in many areas—energy, construction, transportation, electronics, medicine, to name a few.
In the United States, there is an acute need for engineers;the demand has moved the U. S. government to allow international students studying engineering (as well as science, technology, and math) in the U. S. to extend their optional practical training period.
Since engineering is about applying scientific and mathematical principles, you may want to consider engineering and engineering technology programs that emphasize hands-on learning where students apply engineering and engineering technology knowledge and skills.
