Which college degrees will give you the best chances of finding employment after graduation? Some students select a major because it offers practical training that will be valuable in the workplace. Other students choose their major simply because they enjoy the subject material. Given the variety of engineering specializations, there is a niche that will appeal to you as an engineer. From innovation in mechanical design to advances in jet propulsion systems, engineers are at the forefront of development. Further, there is a growing skill shortage of trained engineers across all sectors. The most popular college major is business administration, split evenly between men and women. On the other hand, men make up the vast majority of computer science and engineering majors. For women, the fields of education, English and liberal arts dominate the list.

Online courses foster faculty innovation in teaching, by requiring professors to develop new course materials. Distance education reduces the need for high-priced course textbooks, as many books are now available on Kindle, Google Books, or as shareware. If you so choose, online education gives you the opportunity to take difficult courses that won't show up on your transcript. Alternatively, you may be able to complete online credits for a grade. Advanced Placement exams (AP Exams) are offered in a variety of subjects, offering college credit for classes that you have taken. Test yourself with free practice exams, before visiting the College Board website to register to take your actual AP Tests. If you earn a score of 3 or higher on an AP Exam, you may be granted advanced placement in college.

Engineering Certification

The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, also referred to as the Engineer in Training (EIT) exam, is the first of two examinations that engineers must pass in order to be licensed as a Professional Engineer. The exam is open to anyone with a degree in engineering, or who is currently enrolled in the last year of an ABET-accredited engineering degree program. The exam is eight hours long, split into four-hour sessions. The morning session is a 120-question test, while the afternoon session consists of 60 in-depth questions. Topics include:

Probability and Statistics
Mechanical Engineering
Civil Engineering
Material Properties
Fluid Mechanics
Electricity and Magnetism
Thermodynamics
Biochemistry

Results are mailed approximately 2 months after the test date, depending on each state's engineering licensure board. After completing an 4-year apprenticeship, an Engineer in Training (EIT) qualifies to take the Professional Engineer (PE) exam, for certification and licensure. For study purposes, an engineering testing handbook may be downloaded from the NCEES website, the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying.

Design Software

The rise of computer-aided software (CAD) has greatly increased engineering productivity. Physical conditions, such as light and shadow, can be simulated easily. AutoCAD was released way back in 1982, and Solidworks 3D-modeling software came out in 1995. However, efficient 3D modeling only become widespread after graphics-processing improved to the point of being able to render high resolution images made of hundreds of sub-objects.

Structures

Few 21st century projects come close to the size and scope of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Built from 1998 to 2008, LHC is one of the most advanced research facilities ever designed. LHC accelerates two high-energy particles in opposite directions across a 27-kilometer (17-mile) ring in order to observe the collision. The particles travel at near the speed of light within two vacuum tubes, and are guided by superconducting electromagnets. These electromagnets are special in and of themselves, requiring a temperature colder than -271.3°C.

Business & Medical Job Listings

Although most jobs which pay six-figure salaries require a college degree, technical fields offer high salaries based more on ability than which school you graduated from. Students will impress future bosses more with an impressive portfolio than with an advanced degree, so practice your skills as a consultant for local companies. Candidates with prior industry experience are preferred by interviewers, so you resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on numeric results and personal achievements.

In order to become an RN (Registered Nurse), a bachelors degree in nursing is recommended. RN's command a greater salary, and are responsible for an enlarged scope of practice over LPNs and CNAs. Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in a hospital setting. A 4-year BSN program allows students to further specialize in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health. After completing your nursing education, you must be licensed by the state in which you'll be practicing, given that state boards of nursing each have specific certification requirements.
