The Path To The Future May Well Go Through Honeywell Avionics

By Cornelia White

With an overwhelming number of American college students pursuing degrees in the Arts, one must wonder how companies like Honeywell avionics will recruit employees without looking overseas. Opportunities in the tech and information job fields grow more available every day. A nation needs to impress the importance of pursuing degrees in these fields and provide incentives as well.

Defense contractors are often the same people and corporations who provide the technology to private sector companies that provide similar, civilian services. The technology that keeps warplanes in the air is the same technology that keeps customers in the air while traveling during holidays and vacations. Developing technology that helps one is also developing technology that helps the other.

If the federal government could allow more grant money for tech research to be available, more developments could be made, more quickly. With the safety of public passengers at the forefront of an airline's priorities, it can be assumed that they would be the first in line for any developments made in their particular line of business. Funding the research of development teams in these fields will not only allow the Department of Defense to use the highest quality products but will also benefit the "Average Joe" who flies to see family on Thanksgiving.

Paying well is another option. Most youngsters hear very early that lawyers and doctors make good money which means that young people with a desire to make good salaries often head in these directions. If the pay of a computer technician or a theoretical physicist were comparable and were known as such, people might be able to steer students towards those fields.

Employing good teachers is probably another great way to develop great students. The horrifying rate of pay for school teachers doesn't attract the best and brightest minds and therefore you don't have the best education being given. A good fundamental education in math and science could encourage early interest that would develop well over time and provide more competitive domestic job hunters.

Another method could be making tech educations and math and science degrees "cool". There are any number of reality shows that promote the ability to sing or produce art. Why can't people turn that example in another direction? "America's Next Top Scientist" might turn out to be a great show and would sincerely encourage those few talented individuals who could compete to be more effective.

Rather than funneling money and time into the development of another pop star or survivalist, you could be channeling it into turning tech cool. If folks showed the appreciation for the individuals who develop great technology that they do for pop stars, more young people would think of them as role models. People should be encouraging that to begin with.

Despite the argument against government spending, research grants should be given to the teams of people who develop products in the technology fields. Companies who produce tech products and jobs, like Honeywell avionics, should be encouraged to become global leaders in research. By doing this, it will also guarantee that the United States becomes a leader not only in the production of tech products but also tech jobs.
