Global Engineering Consulting Costs

profit-cost

The United States continues to struggle with global competition as colleges continue to raise their prices for science and high-tech engineering degrees. What most students and engineers do not realize is most of the world is designing and developing complex engineering projects at a fraction of the cost.  Students are receiving the same education abroad and working for a lot less and producing the same quality work. 

By hiring consultants abroad Corporations are focusing on reducing costs and increasing profits which is easy to do today. Lets take a look at some of the current numbers in the United States and compare them with Latin America.  Keep in mind these costs are averages.  It does depend on the project, experience and if the engineer you will be working with is fluent in English.  In most cases hourly in Latin America is considerably lower than the prices found in the comparison below.
