How European Engineers Can Overcome Language Barriers When Working Abroad
Unlike in the U.S.—where most, if not all, skilled workers can communicate proficiently in English—in Europe, language barriers can be a major problem. So, what can engineers do to overcome these inherent barriers that are prevalent across the entire continent?
Comparing European and American Engineering Salaries: Who Makes More?
For years, the engineering field has been embroiled in controversy over fair pay and social capital. While many view engineering as a lucrative field, real-world metrics may indicate otherwise. Accordingly, salary gaps between European and North American markets may be skewing engineering’s overall outlook.
Safety in the Workplace: What Every Electrical Engineer Should Know
Electrical safety is a crucial aspect of any electrical engineer’s (EE) career that can, quite literally, be a ‘life or death’ matter. Every day, EEs work with electrical devices and equipment that utilise potentially hazardous voltages. Here’s how to avoid them.
