Best Engineering colleges in Maryland

Why a degree in engineering?

Let’s face it, you’re smart. You passed science and math classes with flying colors, and you are the “go-to” when it comes to computer help. You probably took apart a lot of things in your childhood just to see how they worked. Now here you are, ready to literally build the future.

How to prepare for an engineering degree

Engineering has a lot of positives. As suspected, student debt won’t be a concern since finding an engineering career with a starting salary less than $55,000 or an average salary less than $85,000 is more difficult than learning the RubixCube pattern. If money isn’t your driving factor, how about the 85% of engineers who are satisfied with their jobs*, despite longer workdays.

It’s the challenges every day that keep engineers and their ticking minds happy. So if you think you can hack it out with the best of them, brush the dust off that TI84 and get ready. It really is rocket science.

Aspiring engineers who want to serve their country will be hard-pressed to find a stronger fit than the U.S. Naval Academy. The institution offers programs in electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering, naval architecture and ocean engineering, weapons and systems engineering, and aerospace engineering. All put a premium on learning skills that equip graduates to be productive members of the U.S. Navy or U.S. Marines following graduation, though some go into civilian careers at the end of their mandatory service time. USNA considers hands-on experiences a vital component of an engineering education. For ocean engineers, this might mean studying wave mechanics in the Academy’s state-of-the-art hydromechanics lab. Aerospace engineers might serve a summer internship with a defense contractor such as Boeing or Lockheed Martin. All engineering majors complete a capstone senior design project and present it during a well-attended, day-long event in the spring. Past teams have built an energy-efficient ship to take supplies to small Caribbean islands and designed cyclone shelters for people in Bangladesh using local materials. These meaningful projects clearly go beyond your typical resume bullet point.
