7 (Engineering, Page 7) GENERAL INFORMATION Bachelor's degree provides wide range of career opportunities in industry, business, and government. Graduate degrees offer more opportunities for career advancement. Bachelor's degree is good background for pursuing technical graduate degrees as well as professional degrees in Business Administration, Medicine or Law. Related work experience obtained through co-op, internships, part-time or summer jobs, or regular employment is extremely beneficial. Develop computer expertise within field. Engineers need to think in scientific and mathematical terms, have ability to study data, sort out important facts, solve problems, and be logical thinkers. Creativity is useful. Other helpful traits include intellectual curiosity, technical aptitude, perseverance, ability to communicate and work well with others, a commitment to teamwork, and a basic understanding of the economic and environmental context in which engineering is practiced. Develop excellent verbal and written communications skills including presentation and technical report writing. All states and the District of Columbia require registration of engineers whose work may affect the life, health, or safety of the public. Professional or technical societies confer certification in some areas. Join related professional organizations. Most fields offer overseas opportunities with businesses or government agencies. Because of rapid changes in most engineering fields, both continued education and keeping abreast of new developments are very important. Most states require an EIT (Engineer-In-Training) test before taking a state examination to become a Professional Engineer (PE).
