G.R.A.D.E. Camp

Why Study Engineering?

You'll have lots of options!

An engineering education will prepare you for many different careers—some engineers go into medicine, law or business management. Engineers work everywhere: in big and small cities, rural communities, even remote wilderness areas.

You'll have the power to make a difference!

By becoming an engineer, you can help solve problems that are important to society. You'll have money and job security! With an engineering undergraduate degree, you could be making a typical starting salary between $45,000 to $60,000 a year. And society will always need people, like engineers, who solve problems and come up with new ways of thinking about and doing things.

You'll be working with other talented people!

Engineering is a team effort. As an engineer you may be working on projects with experts in many different fields and people from different backgrounds—even different countries.

You'll get to do cool stuff!

Be the first to develop or try out a new technology! Engineers will be involved in making all the wonders of the future a reality.
