No wonder engineering is so popular! This from an RCA ad from the 50’s. [via Modern Mechanix]

  1. Yup, wish it were that way in reality! :)

    The graphic design is so cool. If I saw an ad like that now, I’d be applying ASAP.

  3. It still is the reality in aerospace engineering…maybe not the recognition part… but I, and many of my colleagues, earn six figure incomes, after only about 5 or 6 years in the industry. And the facilities are great.

  4. Without delving into the “are programmers engineers” argument, this is pretty much the life of a senior programmer, except you don’t wear a suit. I’m wearing an Adidas shirt right now at work…six figure salary, interesting work, professional respect from others…

    I’ve got one son who is deeply into electronics and mech eng, and I tell him that being an engineer is a great way to have a good life and support a family. It’s work, of course – that’s why they call it work and not happy-fun-time, but it beats the living hell out of sorting mail or delivering pizzas, both of which I did when I was younger.

    I also played piano bar, which was probably more fun, but then I had kids :).
