Stick with It: Get Your Engineering Degree

Gaining a college education is a must in the technological, highly educated society in which you live. You have always had a gift for math and science, something your mother never had, a fact she reminds you of often! She also reminds you often that you have a responsibility to use the gift you have been given to enrich the world you live in and are a part of. Because you are a good girl and you listen to your mother, you are now looking into pursuing your engineering degree. Read on to learn about this process and the specialties that are available to you and others that are pursuing the same degree.


One of the specialties an Engineer can work towards is Aerospace. When you think of the Aerospace industry, you may just think of becoming an astronaut. Although that may be an option, it is definitely not all that is included. An aerospace engineer can develop new technologies for use in defense systems, aviation, and space exploration. They are responsible for creating cutting edge, amazing machines including drones, jumbo jets, space shuttles, and so much more. Salary can range from $50,000 to $75,000 for entry level engineers.


Biomedical engineers work designing solutions to problems in medicine and biology. These solutions help improve the effectiveness and quality of patient care. They may design new instruments and devices or improve on existing ones, or they may work on biomedical software. They may also be involved in developing software to run medical equipment, computer simulations for new drug testing, or even create artificial limbs. Starting salary can range from $35,000 to $63,000.


To work in the chemical engineering field, you must first obtain an engineering degree. Engineers use the principles found in chemistry, biology, and physics to solve problems or create faster or more efficient processes. Chemical engineers may work in the food industry, fuel industry, or in the field of developing new prescription drugs. They may also work in the architectural industry, in the industry of developing synthetic fibers, and so much more. The starting salary range for this type of engineer ranges from $52,000 to $78,000.
