Program Description

Within the engineering spectrum it is important to note that there are some concentration areas that will allow you to earn a higher salary than other areas of engineering. While this factor may influence the educational path you pursue, you will likely also want to think about your natural abilities and what type of engineering work you think you would most enjoy. However, if salary is a big deciding factor for you, then you may want to think about a career in petroleum engineering. A degree program in this area will primarily focus on geology, physics, and chemistry courses. Depending upon your specific degree program you may also study fluid dynamics, petrophysics, and fluid mechanics. Regardless of the degree level you are pursuing, just prior to graduation you can expect to be required to complete an internship or a capstone project. In the industry of engineering it is important to understand that where you are located will play a huge factor with regards to your rate of pay.

However, if you are leaning more towards the field of architecture, then an associate's degree program will be sufficient to get you started in your career path. It is common for students to choose to pursue an associate's degree in architectural engineering technology. In this degree program you will be studying a variety of construction areas, computer aided design systems, and the ethics that apply in creating structures. Generally speaking, this degree program will be an ideal fit for individuals who plan to further their level of education, but wish to work while completing their education. Your coursework will be designed to teach you how to properly examine factual information, how to execute estimates, how to use computer programming, and how to appropriately create architectural presentations and prints. Your curriculum, which will consist of classroom based instruction and field work or laboratory work, is likely to require you to complete classes such as: visual illustrations, CAD, approximating budgets and preparing agreements, structural conceptions, and methods and practices in architectural designs. It is important to note that while further educational degree programs will consist of similar coursework, you will be required to study the topics at a more intensive level. According to online research, individuals who have a degree in an area of architecture are expected to have an average rate of job growth over the next few years.

Whether your degree is in engineering or architecture, it may be possible for you to seek employment in a position such as: drafter, architect assistant, specification writer, estimator, or municipal planner.
