  1. Hey Guys, I wanted to ask if any of you have acquired or ever looked into a Graduate Certificate Program? more specifically for Project Management or Construction Management. For those who don't know what it is, Its pretty much a watered down version of a Master's degree but with 4-5 classes instead of the full Master's Degree curriculum. To give you guys a little background, I am a Civil Engineer with a BS and 5 years of experience. I am looking to take my PE next year. Along with my PE, I wanted to pursue getting my PMP and CCM in the future. I wanted to see if you guys think that going for a Graduate Certificate in Project Management or Construction Management is worth the trouble? Here is an example of what I'm talking about: http://www.worldcampus.psu.edu/degrees-and-certificates/project-management-certificate/overview Thanks
  2. Hello all, I am currently a new graduate from University of California, San Diego with a degree in BS Structural Engineering. I have been interning at a mid-size structural design firm for about 2 months now in the Bay Area. Palo Alto to be exact. My starting hourly wage was only 15 dollars an hr. And now that I have interned for two months, the principal is offering me a full time position with a wage of 18 an hr. Now...I know am inexperienced with the exception of my intern experience here. However, from my ask around from my friends and colleagues, I know i should be aiming for around 55k-60k. This offer is no where near that. 15 an hr was fine for interning cause I just want experience. Is my salary expectation skewed? Should I take this offer (it is at will)? Maybe I should take the offer, get some experience and then leave in like a couple of months? With the exception of the salary, I love this job. I get to work on a variety of projects, i like my coworkers and the hours are reasonable. Please advise...I am so green haha. Thanks everybody
  3. Hello all, A couple of years ago, I have posted here asking for advice as an undergraduate student about the field of civil engineering and structural engineering. Recently I just graduated from the University of California San Diego with a BS in Structural Engineering and have moved back to my hometown in the Bay Area in California. The advice that I received from here definitely helped me alot so I want to ask the audience again. As a new college graduate, is there any tips and advice into landing a good job in the field? I was planning to apply to jobs found on Indeed, and just slowly apply to jobs through each of the companies that I have heard of like Parsons, AECOM, and KPFF. Is this the right way to go about it? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!
  4. As a Naval Architect, you won’t just be involved in the design of vessels but will be able to get involved with aspects of manufacture through to launch, test and commissioning. Naval Architecture is a whole boat engineering discipline. This means that as a Naval Architect you'll not only be involved in the design of vessels, but also all aspects of manufacture right through to launch, test and commission. In the case of our businesses, you'll work to ensure that our surface ships and submarines do what they should do. A large part of the work involves computer based design. However, you'll also get extensively involved in other activities too – such as computer simulation modelling and physical model tank testing. Welcome to Naval Architecture in the real world. What you’ll need To succeed in this area, you’ll need a minimum 2:1 Bachelor's degree in Naval Architecture for our graduate scheme or on course for achieving a 2:1 for our undergraduate schemes. In addition, you need to be eligible to work in the UK and be able to successfully achieve security clearance. In terms of personal qualities, you’ll also need strong organisational ability and excellent communication skills. You’ll know how to collaborate effectively with a wide range of internal and external customers. As a company committed to talent, we welcome applications from a diverse range of people, from all backgrounds and with many different skills, experience and perspectives. Where could you be? Maritime - Naval Ships: By joining us, you’ll be working on projects that will help safeguard our nation for generations to come, including the Royal Navy’s new Offshore Patrol Vessels and Type 26 Global Combat Ships, while also being a part of our exciting transformation into a world class naval engineering business. Your time with us as a Naval Architect will be structured to give you the maximum benefit, working on varied projects from concept design and development, conducting feasibility studies, detailed production and beyond to in-service support. Maritime Services: Maritime Services Naval Architects are based in Portsmouth Naval Base, home to 60% of the Royal Navy Surface Fleet. Our Naval Architects provide worldwide 'in service' engineering support to Royal Navy and commercial ships and facilities. Working closely with the Dock masters, the Naval Architects produce docking preparation drawings prior to all dockings in the Naval Base and calculate docking conditions. They supply consultancy services to the UK Ministry of Defence which include conducting regular inclining experiments, performing structural analysis using finite element software and stability analyses using ship modelling software. Maritime - Submarines: Join our team and you can look forward to being responsible for all hydrostatics and hydrodynamics. You'll also be the docking authority for our vessels which include every submarine currently in service with the Royal Navy. We'll look to you to play a critical role in helping to build the Astute Class submarine and work with our partners to design the next submarine platform – some of the most exciting engineering projects in the world today. Which scheme? Graduate Development Framework (GDF): This two year graduate scheme develops people who are passionate about and show great potential in their chosen field in Maritime Services - Portsmouth Naval Base, Maritime Naval Ships - Glasgow or Portsmouth or Maritime Submarines - Barrow. Through a mix of study and on-the-job training in multiple placements, you’ll steadily acquire the skills and experience needed to become a Naval Architect. Starting salaries range between £25,000 and £28,000 dependent on relevant work experience and academic qualifications. While on the scheme you’ll also receive 6 monthly salary and performance reviews and be supported to work towards chartered engineer status e.g. with the globally renowned Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA). Summer Internship: Available in Maritime Submarines - Barrow and Maritime Services - Portsmouth Naval Base, this is a 12 week internship (29 June 2015 - 18 September 2015), certified by EAL (the specialist, employer-recognised awarding organisation for the engineering, manufacturing, building services and related sectors), which will give you the chance to put theory into practice, learn from colleagues who are experts in their field, and gain insights that can only come from real world experience. During the internship you’ll also receive a salary of £16,800 per annum pro-rata. Learning and development We’ll encourage and support you to realise your potential.

  5. Hi everyone, I just recently graduated with a BS in Civil Engineering. I'm kinda just chillin' at the moment but I'll be job searching in the near future. That said, I'd like to get my resume and cover letter polished before I start applying anywhere and everywhere. So established EngineerBoards community, if you have time, can you please help me look over these two essential pieces? Truthfully, I understand that while much of it especially the cover letter can be quite lengthy and wordy, I would just like to know your take on where/how to cut down everything. From the objective to the opening statements to the bullet points to pretty much anything and everything, let me know which parts are good, which parts are totally unnecessary, tacky, over-the-top, and essentially what I can and should do to make it even better. I am all ears and would greatly appreciate any constructive criticism and feedback as I take the next step towards my career. Thank you all so much for your time and help with this. Gratefully, frogger P.S. I've used some placeholders to protect my confidentiality. Cover Letter.pdf Resume.pdf
