Post-secondary

Associate Degree

An associate degree in engineering technology often leads to a job as a mechanical engineering technician. These techs typically prepare layouts, review blueprints, conduct tests and assist in the design of consumer goods, commercial equipment and industrial machinery. 

Bachelor’s Degree

A bachelor's degree in engineering provides students with the fundamental engineering training they need to start exciting careers in the engineering field. With an extensive variety of engineering specialties available, including aerospace, biomedical, environmental and technology, engineering students have the opportunity to find the perfect niche for their career interests. 

Master’s Degree

There are numerous options for getting a graduate degree as an engineer. The most obvious is a Master’s in Engineering in your current field of engineering (Civil, Electrical, Computer/Software, etc.). However, many engineers actually choose to earn a similar, but different degree, such as Engineering Management, Project Management, or even an MBA with a business, technology, or international focus. The main reason is that it provides a substantial level of diversity for you as you continue to move up in a company.
