Alternative tech
More than 30 per cent of the respondents from Europe, India and North America indicated that they were "likely" or "extremely likely" to consider working in alternative technologies. The question was also posed in Japan, where 45 per cent of respondents answered either "likely" or "extremely likely."

Interestingly, 90 per cent of respondents from India, 82 per cent from North America and 78 per cent from China agreed that green or environmental science presents promising opportunities for engineers. But only 34 per cent of European respondents agreed with this statement.

This likely represents a European perception that jobs in such fields will go primarily to people in emerging economies.

More than 40 per cent of respondents from every region surveyed—led by those in Japan, at 72 per cent—indicated that they were incorporating "green" principles in their designs.

EE Times polled engineers in China, Europe, India, Japan and North America via e-mail between Sept. 8 and Sept. 22, 2009. The pool of respondents was drawn from subscribers to EE Times in each of the survey regions. The survey generated a total of 4,769 usable responses, 1,531 of which came from respondents based in North America and 1,657 from engineers in Japan. Europe contributed 120 completed surveys, China 618 and India 843. The survey was managed and analysed for EE Times by Beacon Technology Partners.
