I am planning to buy a new laptop for the fall semester (mechanical engineering, junior year). I was planning to get a workstation that is certified with Inventor, but I have a question to ask. For those who have experience working as a Mechanical Engineer or those who know people working as a Mechanical Engineer, do companies allow workers to use their personal computer for projects if you want to work at home? Do most companies provide engineers with computers to use for home? If they would not let me, I was thinking of saving the money and getting a consumer-level laptop. Thank you for any replies.
