Heya's. I'm 21 years old, and nearing completion of a B.Sc (majoring in Statistics and Operations Research at the University of Melbourne) Will finish it next year. I've always loved and somewhat enjoyed maths and physics. I did a B.Sc because I've never had a good idea of what I want to be or what I want to do with myself. I was originally planning on majoring in physics, but swapped to the maths majors because I thought it would make me more employable. However this set my graduation date back another year and I still don't know where this degree or the skills acquired will get me. I still have no 'real' target career but recently more and more I've been thinking that I should/could be a mechanical engineer. I'm the sorta guy who loves knowing/working out how things work and am beginning to think this would be an ideal career. I have a pretty good grasp of physics, did well in the 4 physics classes I took. I'm pretty damn good with computers too, I can see this as being a nice skill to have in engineering. A typical Engineering degree takes 4 years at my uni, however I believe with all the prerequisite physics/maths I've done, it can be reduced to 3. So it would be possible to graduate with a B.Sc and B.Eng in 4 more years. Do people studying Mechanical Engineering, generally have specific career or job goals when they start their degree? Because at the moment I can't say I do.. Although I just wonder how amazing it would be to work for a high end manufacturer designing awesome cars. Working for an F1 team would be out of this world. What fields generally employ mech engineers? Are Engineers with Master's or PhD's often sought? Any input would be great, if anyone has any questions that could help me decide what is right for me would be great too.
