Almost Grad in need of advice
Posted 22 February 2012 - 06:00 AM
I've taken classes in heat transfer, fluid mechanics, flow in porous media, matlab, thermo etc as well as design courses in mechanical engineering. I feel like i'm in between a civil and a mechanical degree and it's been tough finding opportunities. I interned at a civil engineering design firm last summer but that's it as far as my job experience goes. What jobs/companies should I look into? I also plan to get my EIT this fall. Thanks for any input.

Your classes do not mean much in the working world. I came out of school with all these classes and theories under my belt, ready to show the profession how much I knew and could contribute. Didn't happen.....The theories are not real world applicable, the job related knowledge you gain is more valuable than any class you ever took. You have to do the grunt work for a few years and then you can get some wings on your resume and let your work history guide you into your dream job.
Good luck out there.
