“I do think a lot of careers will depend on the basic knowledge of sciences, maths, and economics.”

Gates also said that it won’t be necessary for people to have advance knowledge of these topics, but people need to know what can be done and what can’t be done. He said,

“People need not have to know how to write code for a program, but they should know and should have an understanding of what can be done by engineers and what can’t be done by engineers.”
