Wow, that explains the quality of some of the new grads that I used to interview in various schools in south. Lately I've been going to Purdue a lot and so far I got 'la creme of the creme'

One piece of career advice, grow and listen carefully. People got where they got because they listen and because of good mentors. Schools don't teach what you're about get into only the people surrounding will show the ropes.

where are you going to school at ?
every engineering company in houston of any size spends a lot of time and money recruiting at all the engineering schools in Texas. They have the answers you're looking for.
they will fluff it up some, but in general, its the truth...

Contact Fluor Corp. in Sugar Land, they have a $50B 10 yr project kicking off, it requires a lot of civil engineeing.

My next door neighbor's kid just graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from a school in Alabama. He was in a study program so he had time to take the test to get registered. He has had 8 3rd. interviews. The offers are all in the petroleum field and the starting pay is $85000. We know 2 couple who are civil, working for private companies in Houston. They do very well. A neighbor who is in his 50's works for the COH as a civil engineer, makes 82. Don't know about the bribes and benefits, tho.

Thanks for that. I'm planning on taking the FE test, getting my PE license, and going to grad school. I think this field is the right choice. I'm so excited about it.

you have to work in the field for 4-5 year before you can take your PE test. Everyone knows that.

Im really wondering about your honesty, your ignorance of basic "general" information is astounding.

Agreed. And I'm not even an engineer.

Texas stands alone. All other states have different rules and reciprocity.
