Engineering Pathway

What Classes Do McBride Engineering Students Take?
Why Should I become an engineer

You'll have the power to make a difference! By becoming an engineer, you can help solve problems that are important to society. You could be controlling and preventing pollution, developing new medicines, creating advanced technologies, even exploring new worlds. 

You'll have money and job security! Engineers have significantly higher starting salaries than do college graduates with bachelor's degrees in many other fields. After 4 years of college, you could be making $40,000 to $60,000 a year. And society will always need people, like engineers, who solve problems and come up with new ways of thinking about and doing things.Engineer girl

You'll be working with other talented people! Engineering is a team effort. As an engineer you may be working on projects with experts in many different fields and people from different backgrounds - even different countries.

You'll have lots of options! Engineers work everywhere: in big and small cities, rural communities, even remote wilderness areas. Some work in business offices or classrooms, others in factories or research labs; some work outdoors or even in outer space! Some engineers go into medicine, law, business management, or policy. An engineering education will prepare you for many different careers.

You'll get to do cool stuff! Be the first to develop or try out a new technology, like a flying car or an undersea house. Design and build virtual reality amusement parks. Discover and patent a new material that can mend broken bones or cure arthritis. Engineers will be involved in making all the wonders of the future a reality.
