After Graduation

During your first year of Engineering you learned about the diversity of the profession and the rewarding careers it offers. Since then, you’ve grown personally and academically. You’ve had amazing experiences and accumulated new knowledge. Your passion for learning has grown.

Graduate Studies Option
You may now choose to take your education to the next level by pursuing a graduate degree. The benefits of earning a master’s or doctoral degree in Engineering are higher salaries, and greater professional responsibility and satisfaction as a result of greater knowledge.

If you are considering a graduate degree, discuss it with your professors and department advisors—you may discover opportunities you never imagined possible.
