1) Singapore

According to a report released in April 2015 by recruitment firm Hays, Singapore firms are grappling with scarcity of experience engineers.

Hays reported that many employers are looking to increase their engineer headcounts due to heavy workloads. This put engineers in high demand. With the lack of experienced engineers, companies have found it hard to expand at same pace as their growing workload.

Singapore’s Minister for Education, Mr Ng Eng Hen, highlighted the importance of Engineering for Singapore.

​​Engineers will continue to be in high demand, not only here but globally. This is because students elsewhere are moving into other disciplines, even where aggregate demand has increased.​

 

2) UK

​Sir James Dyson, one of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs, has bemoaned the shortage of engineers in Britain, saying he has enough work for another 2,000 recruits if only he could find the staff. The inventor of the eponymous vacuum cleaner said the lack of UK engineers was the “biggest barrier” to growth at his company​.

We’ll get all the workers we need in Singapore and Malaysia​. ​But we have to be realistic in Britain. If we can get 300 we’ll be doing well. We would recruit 2,000 if we could. We have got the technology and the ideas. We just need the people.

​It’s noted that Britain produce​s​ 12,000 engineering graduates a year – and there are currently 54,000 ​job ​vacancies. It’s predicted that in two years time there will be 200,000 vacancies​ and not enough people to fill the positions.​
 

3) Germany

Germany’s shortage of engineers has become so acute that some leading companies want to nurture that interest even at the kindergarten level! Industrial giants such as Siemens and Bosch are among hundreds of companies giving materials and money to kindergartens to nurture interest in technology and science among children as young as three years of age. Bosch even sends its apprentices to kindergartens “to explain what they do at work and then later invite them to look around the company”.
 

The World’s Problem May Be Your Gain

The demand for skilled engineers is high all over the world. A shortage of suitable candidates meant firms are having to pay more to secure the right people. We may foresee more people jumping on the bandwagon to take advantage of the lucrative salary. For the curious souls, the most likely pathway on-route to a successful engineering career is through getting a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering. The possibilities afterwards are limitless.
