U.S. Engineering in a Global Economy follows the NBER tradition of quantitative analysis of the demand and supply sides of the engineering job market in the United States. Many of the chapters use novel data or approaches to examine engineering education, practice, and careers in ways designed to inform science and engineering educational institutions, funding agencies, and policymakers about the challenges and opportunities for developing and employing engineers in ways that can most efficaciously contribute to the innovation driving modern economic growth.
