Engineering Major Support

<p>Hello Everyone,</p>

<p>I have been browsing this site for a little while, trying to understand everything I can about college. I finally decided I would like to get my Masters in Engineering, not sure which subfield, I like Mechanical Engineering, but I have not had the chance to really look at the others yet. Well, the other day i was talking to a friend who mentioned that if i wanted to get my Masters in Engineering, i should get my Bachelors with a different major, so that i could look well rounded to future employers and have somethign to fall back on if engineering does not work out. So i thought i would come on here and ask, what would be the best Bachelors major to get to accompany a Masters in Engineering?</p>

<p>A bachelor’s degree in the same subject would be the best preparation for graduate study.</p>

<p>If not, a bachelor’s degree in a similar subject, with carefully chosen course work to make the transition smoother.</p>

<p>Your friend said you should get a bachelors in something else if you want a masters in Engineering or just a masters?</p>

<p>Masters in Engineering is different than most fields. You should optimally do a bachelors in the same field if you want to get a masters in it for engineering. This isn’t the case in Business, Liberal Arts (except maybe Math or Physics), and Education. </p>

<p>If you really want to do MechE you should major is MechE.</p>

<p>Vladenschlutte, maybe she meant a degree in general, we’ve had numerous conversations about it, i might have tied some of it together.</p>

<p>guess I’ll be majoring in MechE then.</p>

<p>Mech E is pretty interesting</p>
