A student’s dream job.
A chance to earn a decent salary.
A dream of moving abroad.
All that is part of the reason that one in three students at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, opts to study engineering rather than the arts.
The majority of engineering students are in the humanities, where there are more opportunities and pay.
But a recent trend has seen a decline in the percentage of engineering majors who choose to pursue a career in the arts and humanities.
The reasons vary.
Engineering is not a traditionally arts-focused field, but many students have been told that they should pursue engineering to be a better scientist or a better composer.
And even though many people are choosing to study humanities, there are concerns about how they will get a foothold in the field.
The reason why engineering majors are not seeing a big boost in employment is the job market is not as strong as in the sciences.
In a study published in May, the University Board of Governors of Canada found that engineering employment fell by about 13 per cent between the years 2006 and 2011.
The drop came as manufacturing industries were booming in Canada and the US, and the industry experienced a big downturn as the housing market crashed.
As a result, the average age of engineering graduates is now 35.
There are also concerns that a lack of research and development could impact the industry’s future.
“Engineering is not going to get a lot of new talent into the field of engineering.
If we’re going to have new graduates coming into the engineering field, they’re going be in the workforce, so we’re losing a lot in the long run,” said Dr. Chris Le, president of the University College London Faculty of Engineering.
In order to fill the needs of future engineers, Le said it’s important to create a sustainable workforce for the field, and to invest in training programs and other programs.
Le said he believes there are a lot more engineers than there are graduates who are pursuing careers in engineering.
He said many engineers are also interested in learning more about the world and doing something that they are passionate about.
“The more you know, the more you understand.
There’s an old saying, ‘What’s the difference between knowing and knowing well?'”
“We need to create an environment that is conducive to the learning that’s going to lead to a better future for engineers. “
“And we’re at a time when there’s so much demand for engineers that there’s an urgency to find new talent. “
“That’s the most important thing, is to make sure that we are creating the right environment for people to come into the profession.” “
A strong, diverse workforce isn’t just about the students. “

A strong, diverse workforce isn’t just about the students.
The university is also focusing on making the students feel comfortable and secure in their decision.
“It’s important that students feel that they have a supportive and safe environment to make a decision,” said Le.
“So the biggest thing I’m trying to instill in the students is a sense of belonging to the university.”
Le said that the university has developed a “Safe Spaces” program, which aims to ensure that students have a safe and respectful environment when studying engineering.
It also provides a wide range of support, including support groups, a support centre and other resources.
“A lot of our engineering students and their families come to us for support.
I’m very proud that we’re able to provide this,” said Michael Fischbach, president and CEO of the Waterloo Engineering and Science Students’ Association.
“But it’s not just about engineering.
They are coming to the University for the same reasons. “
They have the same needs as anyone else.
They are coming to the University for the same reasons.
They want to be connected with people and to have a better sense of what it means to be part of this university.”
Students are also looking for a way to make it easier for them to find work.
Le believes that engineering graduates need to have more jobs that pay well, as opposed to those that don’t.
“Our workforce is changing.
We need to find the right balance between having good pay and having good opportunities for students and the broader community to develop careers,” he said.
Le hopes that the changes he is making will encourage more engineering graduates to pursue careers in the technology industry.
He is also encouraging students to explore different opportunities in the art and humanities and to take on creative projects.
“In order to make the arts more accessible to everyone, we need to continue to develop more arts programs,” he added.
“Art and humanities students are very important, but we’re also looking at other creative opportunities for them.”
