    I am incompetant with my hands. You should see me struggle trying to put a computer together.. it's painful . If I can't get a job programming when I graduate from college, I am pretty screwed.

    I don't know what you should do. If I were you, I did the thing I liked most. Both have a good future.

    I studied electrical engineering, but I also liked writing software, did some subjects in computer sicence. So I searched for a field in which I could combine hardware-development and software-development and I found the field of embedded systems.

    >> but shiro ,. I have recently completed my graduation in Comp. Science (BE Comp & Sc.)……. So what do u think …… should I go for Comp. Industry or in Analog industry?

    It's good that you have qualified yourself in two different lines. But, its not very easy to find jobs in India. So, you really don't have that kind of a choice. You will HAVE TO go for the Industry that accepts you. It doesn't matter what you like or dislike.


    >> Also in the Netherlands studies show that more and more people are taking higher educations, going to university etc. This means that there are less people available on the market to do things like assembling circuits, assembling machines etc.

    Just b/c more people are taking higher education, doesn't imply that less people will be available for lower things. The percentage increase in the people taking higher education in most countries is still very little as compared to those learning different kinds of trades. Higher education costs high, not many people can afford it. So, there WONT be less people available on the market to do things like assembling circuits, assembling machines etc.

    The number of people who can work is increasing. The percentage of those people who have taken higher education is increasing. So the percentage of people who are available for lower things is decreasing. Since the percentage of people who have taken higher education is increasing faster than the number of people who can work is growing, this means that the number of people who are available for doing lower things is decreasing.

    But I agree that the number of lower thing work which needs to be done is not increasing. Instead, it is is decreasing because of automation. Though still companies have people at work who do things below their level, could be because of market situation. I'm not very sure about that.

    >Higher education costs high, not many people can afford it.

    In the Netherlands this is no valid reason. Higher education here is also accessible for people with low budget, that is because our government stimulates people taking the education they can take. If you can't afford higher education, but you have shown you can take higher education, then the government helps you with that.

    The main reason for this is that the percentage of older people in this country is increasing fast. When they leave their companies, a large gap will come. So by stimulating people to take the highest education they can take, the government hopes these gaps can be filled.

    oh man, my post was about plumbers etc....not electrical engineering.

    I propose there are NO graduates in Electrical Engineering that can rewire a house, and probably even not wire a plug...

    No offence intended but its a time served job, not UNI.

    I dont believe its a higher education issue, its the CURRENT plumbers etc that are NOT taking apprentices on etc...


    The fact remains that there will be a MASSIVE lack of these trades in 10yrs...but I can tell you there will be NO lack of programmers etc.


    Understand that I am aiming to finish Uni with a computing discipline........but that doesnt mean i havent THOUGHT about the plumbing/electricians lifestyle
    Such is life.

    The last plumber to come to my house to put in my spa charged Au$20 to turn up and Au$1 per minute to stay, plus parts.

    Same with the electrician, but I fix his PC so it is all free.

    But if something goes wrong with the spa and we have a core meltdown, I will still be insured. If I did the work myself I would not.

    But my family is in medicine (I am the splitter for not being a medico), so I get free / very cheap treatment from doctors and dentists.

    Anyone for self diagnosis / medication?

    Doctor I have a question..if you have had a stomach ulcer/problems, why can you not take NUROFEN(contains ibroprufen).

    Nurofen rocks and is really the only good painkiller out there!

    I know ibroprufen is an anti imflammitory....but why NOT if you have dodgy stomach?

    EH?

    EH?

    hehe
