Why the best and most important engineering schools are in the Bay Area

Re: Why the top engineering schools in the U.S. are located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The U.K. and France are two of the biggest engineering talent markets in the world, but the U to US commute time is only 14 minutes and a half.

Re: What is the most important reason for people to get into engineering?

The answer to that question has changed dramatically over the last 10 years.

 But there are two things that have stayed the same: The need to be able to get paid to do great work and to have an opportunity to be in a large company that is growing and hiring and growing in order to compete with other high-paying industries, and to get some recognition for your work.

I am a great believer in the importance of both of those things, and the U-Bahn system is an amazing example of the kind of collaboration that goes into it.
