What Are “Mid-Tech” jobs?

The Brookings Institute notes that “a surprisingly large share of classic tech jobs are actually quite accessible to workers without a bachelor’s degree”. These “mid-tech” jobs relate to the middle-skill level jobs of the “high-tech” industry.

Just to be clear, getting a job in the high-tech industry doesn’t necessarily require a bachelor’s degree in computer science. In fact, Brookings found that out of nearly 1 million workers in a group of computer and math related jobs (like computer network architects, network support specialists, and computer systems analysts), about 350,000 of those employees do not have a bachelor’s degree. Places like the Lakeland-Winter Haven, FL region have nearly 1,200 mid-tech jobs, out of the 3,200 computer and math jobs surveyed by Brookings – that’s 37%. The New York Daily News reports that in 2016, 52% of those employed as Computer Network Architects did not hold a Bachelor’s Degree.

Project Coordinator job posting for Siemens on LinkedIn

Mid-Tech Jobs aren’t classified as “mid-tech”, but they do exist.

At the more entry level, one “Project Coordinator” role for Siemens, a global conglomerate worth about 96 billion dollars, lists the education requirement at High School Diploma.

In short: Mid-tech jobs can be your key to unlocking the door of a career in the high-tech industry – and, no, you don’t have to be a programmer 🙂

Go for it!

Breakthrough in Battery Power: Microbatteries

Mechanical science and engineering professor William P. King has been leading a group of researchers and scientists that have developed the most powerful microbattery ever documented.

Illinois.edu reports the microbatteries are just a “few millimeters in size, yet they pack such a punch that a driver could use a cell phone powered by these [micro]batteries to jump-start a dead car battery – and then recharge the phone in the blink of an eye.”
