Kettering?

I'm a Junior II ME major at Kettering so we have the rotation ^ said. It works out pretty sweet because we don't have to worry about going to school and making money at the same time.

Freshman in Mechanical at Cleveland State, planning on transferring somewhere after my Sophomore to Aero, which is what I really wanted to go into. Cleveland State doesn't offer it sadly.

Technically I;m not going to be an engineer at the moment, I'm going for a 2 year Electrical engineering tech degree at the local community college, however I will be transfering to UMaine(hopefully) after I graduate to get a degree in eletrical engineering.

I guess I shouldn't be terribly surprised to read this, but was reading that engineering looks to be one of the better fields to be in right now. Companies are having a difficult time filling many positions.

I'm a nuke engr at my current job. I know some co-workers that are getting a nuclear engineering Masters. It dosn't seem hard, and its a rewarding career path since there is a huge shortage of nuclear engineers. Most places will hire mechanical or general engineers to fill in nuclear positions.

This is completely true from what I have seen. A bunch of the older guys I worked with just all decided to quit one day because they didn't like the new managers and were getting bored with the work. They just picked up and moved to a new company that let them do whatever they wanted. How is that for job options?

The only hard part is getting a job right when you graduate. Like that article says, the average salary is 89k but nobody wants to pay that salary to a fresh college graduate with little or no work experience. Everybody wants senior/experienced/projectleads/director engineers, but not many companies have a surplus of legitimate entry level positions.

So for anyone in college now, do fancy projects and spend more time fighting for internships than on your homework. Get that work experience and get your foot in the door.

QFT. Internship/Co-op experience will trump grades 9/10 times.
