I’m not just talking about the breadth of jobs available to mechanical engineers to choose from post-graduation, but I’m also talking about the opportunities available for you in college.
When I talked to alumni who graduated from the college of engineering, most of them who graduated from mechanical engineering had nothing but gratitude for what the degree helped them with in joining the work force. And when I spoke with those with a degree in civil engineering, most of them claimed that they wish they had done mechanical.
This is all from a job I used to have, by the way, the Lehigh Liners.
But during your time at Lehigh, it’s definitely for your benefit to try to pursue some minors along with your major. There are a plenty of minors for which you only need to take one or two extra classes, such as aerospace engineering or something like that.
So keep your eyes open for opportunities, there are bound to be a lot of them if you major in Mechanical Engineering. I’m not even selling out here or anything, this is for real.
