Engineering Degree “has legs”

Most students may not be planning to do a second degree or a different career when they start in the engineering program, but it’s good to know that your degree “has legs”, as explained in this article in the Saskatoon Star Phoenix:

What do they mean?  They mean that “an undergraduate degree in engineering can take you down almost any career path” and that “a lot of industries are really receptive to engineers because they’ve developed that problem-solving capability.”  Finally, engineering training is valuable to any future career choice because it helps develop “traits such as strong judgment, the ability to manage and mitigate risk, leadership, critical thinking and swift problem-solving skills.”

So to all the engineering students writing exams this week – hang in there!  Your hard work will be worth it.
