If you're smart enough to be a good engineer then you can certainly pass most of the actuarial exams if you study hard
Engineers' salary tops out at around 100k
Actuaries make over 200k
I admit I don't know much about being an actuary, but from what I have read, it doesn't sound particularly interesting to me. Seems like one of those jobs where you sit in your cubicle in front of the cubicle all day crunching numbers?
Actuarial science is boring as mud compared to engineering if you ask me. Who would find it exciting to sit there and just assess risk all day when I could be making atmospheric reentry vehicles, for example.
Ha! As opposed to many engineering jobs...where you sit in your cubicle all day long crunching numbers.
