  1. Thanks so much! Would you advise AMD or Nvidia? Because there might be more cost savings in AMD possibly? like AMD FirePro™ W5100 4GB (4 DP) (2 DP to SL-DVI adapters) or AMD FirePro™ W5100 4GB (4 DP) (2 DP to SL-DVI adapters)
  2. So attached is what I got for the Dell PC you sent. Let me know what you think.
  3. Thanks. I'll see what he says. What SSD and Auxilary Video Card do you recommend? and what do you mean by "Auxillary Video Card"?
  4. He also mentioned to tell him specific specifications so he could see what deal he could get that way as well.
  5. Hey So I talked to the owner and he said to send him recommendations. Since he gets deals from Dell, he send to give him recommendations for Dell PCs. His budget is around the $1500 mark but he is willing to spend a little more here or there. So can you give me some recent of current DELL pcs that would meet this budget with the graphics card memory and processor you recommend to best use Microstation, GEOPAK, and Autocad? Would really appreciate it.
  6. I think what I want to do is Roadway Design. That is what interests me most.
  7. I completed my Bachelors in Civil Engineering May 2015. Worked one year in Site Development and for the past 10 months on Roadway Design. Passed the PE exam last Spring in Transportation. (since I am in Illinois, I don't have to wait the 4 years to take the exam) I am thinking to pursue further education and get a Masters Degree. What options are good for the future for Civil Engineers? I am open to the idea of getting a Masters in Civil Engineering but I am considering other degrees as well. One of the fields I was thinking is MBA. Any experience on what other Masters programs would be valuable in the future?
  8. Thank you so much! I was not given a budget nor did I pitch the idea. But since its hard to get a hold of the owner I wanted to have some options before hand to spit out. I'll report back as soon as I talk to him. Thank you once again!
  9. I work at a small office civil engineering firm and we use Microstation and Geopak heavily. We work as subs for DOT projects. The computers we have aren't the best and run slow. I am trying to propose to the owner we get some new computers that render our CAD work faster and load up faster. Can anyone recommend to me what would be some affordable options (preferably desktops that are already preconfigured)? Would appreciate any help.
  10. Illinois results are in! I passed Civil Transportation. Yay!!!
  11. whats the cut score for transportation?
  12. So would you believe they would release it tomorrow? do they release on a weekend? Do I look through continental testing or through the ncees website?
  13. Does anybody know if Illinois is out?
  14. So today I got a job offer from a company. (I posted about going through a tough time with my boss a few weeks ago on this thread). The job offer is providing approximately $7000 more than what I currently make (I graduated with a BS in Civil Engineering May 2015 and got a job before graduating, so if I take this new job, this would be my second job since graduating college. Frankly, I was quite put down in the current company I am in. My most recent manager but my down and scolded my work a lot which really has effected me mentally and emotionally (I got changed managers last week thank god, I didn't say anything though that caused the change). I just don't feel the motivation to learn here anymore and I feel I need a change to bring back energy in my career. What I currently do is land development and I have always liked roadway design and this opportunity gives me that. So that is why I am thinking of switching. I feel salary wise as well it would be beneficial for my family. What are your thoughts? So here are some of my questions/concerns on how to resign since I am doing this for the first time professionally: 1) The person I need to inform, Eric(president of the company) of my resignation won't return to the office until Monday. The offer I got from the company said they need to fill the position ASAP and would like to know my decision by the end of this week. Should I email Eric and let him know about my resignation and put in my two weeks notice? or should I wait to inform/talk to him in person on Monday morning when he returns? 2) If I put my resignation in on Monday morning in person (Monday May 9), would the two weeks notice be applicable until the end of the working day on Friday May 20 (i.e. 14 business days). 3) The offer letter I got from the new company says that my offer is contingent on a drug test. Should I take the drug test and when they receive the successful results, then give my resignation notice? or should I give my resignation notice after I have signed and send my acceptance to the new company? (FYI, I don't do drugs, alcohol, smoke etc so I am confident nothing should come up in the drug test but I am still exercising caution about this drug test. I would appreciate any advice anyone has regarding my situation. I just want to go about it professionally and in a kind manner and would like to hear what others think about this opportunity. I learned a lot from my current company and just want to be professional about it. Thanks everyone.
