Why Engineers should learning Chinese

Learn a Foreign Language As an Engineer? from Slashdot.

Interesting discussion on what language an Engineer may want to learn. The discussion, or at least the higher rated comments missed the point that a huge amount of manufacturing is done in China, and since relationships are important in China for getting things done, learning Mandarin Chinese helps. China is making everything from A to Z, from basic manufacturing of cheap goods to some pretty advanced equipment that is competing with market leaders like Cisco.

Yes, I know about the copying of Cisco's IP and counterfeit computer hardware. It still says something they are able to make that level of counterfeits. China government is pushing for China to stop being a follower on technology and just competing on price. It's interesting to watch and there is a lot of potential for making money in China.

An interesting article. It is a shame that engineers are the least likely personality types to learn a second language.
