5 Reasons to Love Engineering
1 Engineering Is Open to Everyone!
Engineering teams are made up of several different positions―specialists and technicians with associate degrees to technologists with bachelor’s degrees and professional engineers— that work collaboratively to invent, design, and create things that matter.
2Earn a Big Salary
Engineers not only earn lots of respect, but they’re highly paid. Even the starting salary for an entry-level job is impressive! Engineering may be your path to financial freedom.
3Make a Difference
Everywhere you look you’ll see examples of engineering having a positive effect on everyday life. Things like cleaning up ocean garbage, developing sustainable and clean energy sources, and redesigning highways and roadways to reduce accidents.
4Be a Creative Problem Solver
Engineering is a great outlet for the imagination—the perfect field for independent thinkers. Creative problem-solving will take you into uncharted territory, and your colleagues’ ideas will expose you to different ways of thinking. Be prepared to be fascinated and to have your talents stretched in ways you never expected.
5Work with Great People
Engineering takes teamwork, and you’ll collaborate with all kinds of people inside and outside the field. Whether they’re designers or architects, doctors or entrepreneurs, you’ll be surrounded by smart, inspiring people.
