Well, I'm going to a big University this upcoming fall. I'm at a crossroads on what and where I want to go in terms of Engineering. I'm planning to shoot for my masters. Civil vs Mechanical. I'm a bit sad that Civil Engineers get paid crap and it takes so long to get paid well (not sure?) but it seems fulfilling and that I can get a job anywhere. Mechanical Engineers get paid pretty well, like 5,000 - 10,000 more than civil engineers. However, I am unsure how long it takes to get paid very well. Both seem incredibly fun to do and fulfilling, however, pay raise is what I'm aiming for and how fast I can get it. Do Mechanical Engineers get paid well very quick or does it take years before you get paid well. Same for Civil Engineering.
