Dear readers!

The Attached documents give an in-depth research result about the Future expectations for job security, possibilities, numbers of needed future technicians and engineers by the US government. Although the details of the prognoses in other parts of the world may be different, a number of conclusions drawn may be very similar in other regions of the world.
Having this in the back of your mind it is useful information for Unions, Association of staff groups, interested persons as well as for students looking for future jobs and study directions. In addition it could be useful for training organisation, looking and weak areas to stimulate, or Curriculums to adept to make the various training more interesting for particular groups such as female students whose numbers are now under developed in the various technical training classes.

All in all, a project results worth reading.
