This really depends on the type of Engineering degree you are looking at. There are four main categories Mechanical, Chemical, Civil and Electrical. Each one has many subcategories. I am not an expert in most of them but I could see Mechanical, Civil and Chemical engineers doing similar tasks as one would during their education. I am a Senior Engineer in the IT field and every day seems to be different. Entry level IT engineers generally work in a help desk environment until your skills get homed into a specific platform or product line. The great thing about Engineering is that technology changes so fast, your daily work will change with it.
