Graduate Study

Although a Bachelor's in engineering is a terminal professional degree, many graduates elect to pursue advanced education.  As a result of the broad curriculum in mechatronics, graduates are well prepared to pursue electrical or mechanical engineering, as well as related fields such as biomedical or aerospace engineering.  If management-bound, others alums have added an MBA degree to their credentials.

Full-time graduate school is always an option, but many working engineers choose to maintain their employment and take classes as a slower pace.  This can be done at a local higher institution or can be pursued through online graduate education such as NC State's EngineeringOnline.  This has the added benefit that employers may cover some or all of the expense of the degree.
