700 Reasons: Reason #169

Reason: 169
Languages are important for engineers. This is because engineering has become international, and if you have decided to enter one of the many branches of engineering it is very possible that you will one day find yourself working for a multinational company or a firm which has connections abroad. You would need to be able to communicate with employees at all levels, not only in the context of your work as an engineer, but also in a whole range of social situations
