I'm debating whether I want to pursue graduate education in ME. Seems like a B.S. nowadays is like the new high-school diploma and you can't really "make" (or design) anything unless you have graduate education. With B.S. it seems like all you can do is be someone's robot and do all the boring non-skilled non-creative work in a cubicle. I want to design combustion engines and general automotive parts (clutches suspensions transmissions, etc). Will it be necessary to attend graduate school for a M.S.? What's the general feeling from you guys? Can anyone help me out?
