An education in Mechanical Engineering would be preferable. I would advise them to get as much diverse work experiences as possible, even if these jobs are not engineering related.

Enterprising?
Enterprising 
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

You Tube Short Film Contest

You Tube Short Film Contest

YouTube is launching a film festival that will play out online and send 10 finalists to the Venice Film Festival.

The Google-owned video site announced that Your Film Festival will take submissions of short films up to 15 minutes in length between February 2 and March 31.

Fifty semi-finalists will be selected by Scott Free Productions, Ridley and Tony Scott's production company. Those 50 films will form a channel on YouTube: www.YouTube.com/yourfilmfestival. There, users will be able to view the films and vote for their favourites. The 10 finalists will be flown to the 69th annual Venice Film Festival, where their films will be screened in August.

The only restrictions besides length are that entrants must be at least 18 years old and that the work cannot have been distributed prior to January 1, 2010.
