Jasmine’s Answer

An engineering degree gives you lots of options. At its base, engineering teaches you how to solve problems. When you look around you, there are so many problems to solve...structural, mechanical, electrical, social, economic, and management. While I graduated with a degree in civil engineering, I have never practiced. However, my degree has opened doors for me in so many areas at Verizon. I applied my problem solving skills to manage teams, grow sales, reduce costs and improve processes. I have only worked for Verizon after college but I can tell you that I've had a multitude of management jobs.


My suggestion is to pick an engineering field that excites you and makes you smile when you think about it. I have a love of architecture whether it be buildings, bridges or even overpasses that continues to this day. While I do not have plans to return to my civil engineering roots professionally, I know that the skills I developed during that course of study will always be in demand in the marketplace.

Michael’s Answer

Technology fields are booming and engineers are in high demand. Big companies like Lockheed Martin hire a lot of engineers right out of college to fulfill their government contracts. Going to school for an electrical engineering degree is always a safe bet. There are many avenues you can go down as you get more familiar with the field and establish base knowledge. You could be a radio engineer, systems integration engineer, aerospace engineer, the list is endless and you don't need to decide now. I suggest doing an internship or 2 from sophomore to senior yr of college. That will help you learn what you like and give you maximum exposure and make it easy to get job offers even before graduation.
