I just got done with my first year working towards a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering. I chose the field because it was interesting to me, and I had did some research, which showed that a mechanical engineering degree was one of the best for employment. Better than Civil Engineering. However, I was looking at the top jobs on careercast, and it appears that their study shows civil engineering has a much better job outlook than mechanical engineering. They ranked civil engineering with a "very good", and mechanical engineering with a "very poor". I realize that the economy has taken a turn, but why does it seem that mechanical engineers got hit worse than civil engineers? Does this seem accurate? Thanks for the time!
