Good Manufacturing Engineering Schools
I just wanted to know what graduate schools out there are good for manufacturing engineering? I'm a mechanical engineering student and right now I'm looking at Rutgers, NJIT, and Rowan University but I'm not sure what's good for manufacturing. Thanks! #manufacturing #manufacturingengineering #mechanicalengineering #engineer #engineering #3dprinting #additivemanufacturing
It really does matter where you go to school. The important things are how well you study to get the best grades and how well you do interpersonal networking, as that is the way that most people acquire suitable jobs and progress in their career area. Many people get their start at the local community college, as the classes are smaller and the costs are more reasonable, and they have coop and internship programs that will allow you to earn and learn and early on see the inside view of the career area.
It all starts with getting to know yourself better to determine a suitable career area and confirming it by doing networking to see the inside view from people involved in that area. A smart move would be to talk to the director of alumni relations at your local community college to arrange to meet and talk to graduates of that school who are doing what you think that you want to do, so you can see how they got there and get their advice and suggestions.
Here is an interesting video relating to the choice of college: ## http://www.ted.com/talks/julie_lythcott_haims_how_to_raise_successful_kids_without_over_parenting?utm_campaign=social&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_content=talk&utm_term=education
Ken recommends the following next steps:
When researching which school would be best for me to attend, I made a list of companies with great reputations in how they treated employees. I would then place a call to their HR and ask questions what their preferences would be when hiring. For example: if an applicant is from college A and another from college B which would be your preference.
