How do you apply your degree to your career?

The role of an Engineer is so diversified. From optimizing processes, to planning, managing projects, troubleshooting, leading teams, technical sales, or design, the careers opportunities are vast. Take the time to explore. Figure out what you like (and what you don’t like). Get the facts and shadow jobs to get a sense of where the career path will take you. Seek out as well as seize opportunities when they present themselves. Finally, work hard, persevere through challenges, and have a positive attitude.
