Career advice

  1. Apr 24, 2007 #1
    I have a B.S.M.E. and now considering going back to get a MA in mathematics. Would this be a good career move or should I consider a MS in mechanical? I enjoy ME however I also enjoy mathematics. I am wanting skills to be diversified. What would be my career paths?

    It's tough to say. I consider an MS in mechanical to be pretty diverse as it is. I guess it will depend on what part of industry you would like to be in. IMO, the MSME will serve you better in terms of employment and job function. Again, that's just an opinion.
