Davos and Us... Academic Scholarships and Engineering Job Opportunities for the week ending 31 January 2014

Hello there

Today we enter the last week of January. The clock keeps ticking while some of us keep wishing rather than doing. Last week the Global elite went for the annual talking shop and photo opportunity that the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland has become. From the litany of news report and indepth analysis what seemed most worrisome to me was the battle between man and machine. This is not another sequel of the Terminator franchise. The fact is that the disruptive ability of Information Technology is being keenly felt in many middle class jobs. Like I observed last week a plethora of mid-level jobs are being taken over by computers. This means that those jobs that you intended to do at the beginning of your undergraduate degree may no longer be there when you graduate.

The trend is only set to accelerate. Therefore entire career paths will be swept away by the tsunami of technological innovation.

Your only bulwark is to be as prepared as you can be. In all you do get educated!

This week we go further by listing some MSc scholarship opportunities in addition to PhD positions that are available. Apply for as many as you can. It's a matter of performance not luck and the more you apply the better  you get. In the battle between man and machine please pick your side carefully.

Have a great week and God bless.
