Re: Looking to the future: What career is right for me?
Mechanical Engineer is, in my opinion and others, the most well rounded undergraduate degree. From an undergraduate degree in Mechanical engineering you can either go onto higher education and study law, or medicine, or other engineering fields or use it for a career in totally unrelated fields.
I do not know of any field that is immune to these economic times but, I know many mechanical engineers who are still working and able to find jobs in these times.
I have been able to keep working in mechanical now for over 25 years. I find the field very creative. Things have changed over the years and a lot of manufacturing is overseas now.
I am not here just to keep the beat; I add color, timbre, and presence.
