Engineers have a lot going for them in terms of career prospects. According to the 2020 World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Jobs of Tomorrow: Mapping Opportunity in the New Economy, engineering skills are on their list of the highest-demand skills that are essential to break into, what WEF deems, emerging professional clusters. It is specifically the technical and cross-functional skills that graduate engineers have that make them so valuable. While studying, students will likely pick up some of the five most distinct in-demand skills the WEF identified.

Buckle up, because this is going to be a bumpy read, or is that ride? The concept behind backyard roller coasters (BYRC) seem innocent enough. Men, women, and budding engineers build roller coasters for themselves in their backyard when they don’t have constant access to theme parks. But the lore of these rides requires almost a deep web dive to find information on how, why, and when these homemade marvels were completed, or even the trial and error that went into constructing them. Continue reading Backyard Roller Coasters and the Engineers That Build Them at EIT | Engineering Institute of Technology.
