Tips for Entry :
1. As a Mechanical Engineer, in your computer work
become familiar with advanced development software,
such as C++, as well as analytical and scientific software
and computer-aided design (CAD) programs.
2. Civil engineers earning a civil engineering degree
should consider joining a student chapter, where
they can participate in many activities that allow them
to develop professionally outside of the classroom.
They should also look into cooperative education and
work-study programs that allow them to earn tuition
by attending classes for a portion of the year and working
in an engineering-related job for the remainder of
the year.
3. For students working on their degree in electrical
engineering, participation in an engineering internship
at an electric power plant while in college is a great
way to apply classroom learning to an actual work
situation. It also allows them to build skills and make
contacts with people working in the field of electrical
engineering as applied to the energy industry.
