Quick question regarding grad school for anyone that may know.
I am currently a rising senior at a well respected engineering school studying mechanical engineering and am trying to decide what to do with grad school. I am constantly flip flopping back in forth between just going to get a masters vs sticking it out through a PhD, and really can't seem to make up my mind. I was wondering what any of you thought on the matter.
What are the various job opportunities open to each path? What is the difference between these job opportunities? Which is the better path financially? How high up can you get with both degrees (in the engineering world)? Which options would leave you with a better opportunity to get into senior engineering/managerial positions or be more adapt to changing of a career (to something possibly in the finance world)?
I won't lie, money is somewhat important to me, I would prefer to live a very comfy life, that is why I consideredonly doing a masters, working a few years as a practical engineer then get involved with the managerial/finance aspect of things.
