What Are the Best Graduate Degrees For Engineers and What are the Top Mechanical Engineering Universities in USA
It is a difficult question to answer generically, first I need to ask what do you mean by best? If you mean ‘best’ as in high earning degrees then I might have a different answer than ‘best’ for the most exciting degree of our modern age. I, for instance, love Mechanical Engineering and I consider it one of the best graduate degrees for engineers today because it is rich with a wide range of topics, from Fluid dynamics to structural mechanics, from aeronautics to automotive.
If you’re looking for high earning degrees, then I would recommend the following engineering programs
- Energy engineering degree
- Petroleum engineering degree
- Automotive, part of a Mechanical degree
- Software (software development)
Best Mechanical Engineering Universities in USA
I wanted to focus a bit on universities in the USA, so following a quick research, I found that the top mechanical engineering universities in USA without any particular order are:
Before you look at which university you should go to, first decide what your priorities are. Are you looking for engineering programs that interest you and excite your educational curiosity? Or are you thinking about a financial return? After all, an education is an investment. Furthermore, it is important to find the balance between what you like and what you would like to achieve.
Once you decide what you want to do, it is important to review your budget, how much are you ready to pay for an education? Are you going to be in debt for a long time? and is your choice of University worth it?
At the end of the day, it is you who can make the best of an education regardless of which university you choose.
