    you can definetly get a job with just undergraduate

    you are probably looking at 50k+ out the door with a bachelors. around 70 with a master and maybe 90+ with Ph.D

    mhm thnx for the response
    but would most motivated students go for the graduate degree?
  • moshimoshi Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
    yes most serious students choose to pursue a masters and Ph.D degree. this is sometimes offered by companies who will pay you a salary and also pay you to go to college for a masters and Ph.D.


    However, many also opt to choose to get a graduate degree right after undergrad if finances arent an issue.

    As my advsior told me (chemical engineering, not EE, but I believe all engineering professors think this way): 'yes, there are engineers who don't go grad school ... but they're in a cold dark place."

    Not exactly true, he really wants me to go to grad school (I'm reluctant), but I would say it is encouraged not necessary.
