This is just another round of the same "impending scientist/engineer shortage" bullshit we have been hearing since the 1980s. Nothing new here.

Anyone with a STEM education these days is going for a career in Patents, Business/Management consulting, IT/Finance, or health care. And why's that? Simple, anyone who's smart enough to get B+'s to A's in the applied sciences isn't stupid enough to sit around and wait for one's job to get offshored. These articles have got it so wrong that it isn't funny anymore.
