Readers Respond: Engineer Gap: Real or Imagined?

Readers respond to the eWEEK editorial, "Engineer Gap: Real or Imagined?"

The truth is, as long as a job can be outsourced for a fraction of the cost, that is exactly what will happen (Stan Gibsons Outsourcing & Services, "Engineer Gap: Real or Imagined?" Jan. 9).

Out here in the real world, as it was referred to in school, U.S. students should continue to be very worried about selecting engineering as a field of study, whereas their counterparts in India and China can remain very encouraged.
