An Educational Roadmap to Your Career in Engineering

Because of the diverse activities involved in engineering, technology, and technician careers, no single approach will guarantee a successful career. Prospective employers look for a wide range of characteristics. In addition to a solid technical background, employers look for such qualities as integrity, ambition, drive, organizational ability, oral and written communication skills, and interpersonal skills. Employers also seek graduates interested in expanding their knowledge and taking on advanced assignments.

Preparing for Your Career While You're Still in High School

Preparation for a career as an engineer, technologist, or technician begins in high school or even earlier. It requires strong grounding in the fundamentals of mathematics and science, with particular emphasis on physics and chemistry. An effective written and oral command of language and a basic understanding of history, culture, and current events are necessary.

You can take one of three educational paths toward a career in the electrical, electronics, or computer engineering fields:

An appropriate Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Engineering degree (in electrical, electronics, or computer engineering), leading to employment as an engineer; or

An appropriate Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology or Bachelor of Engineering Technology degree (in electrical, electronics, or computer technology), leading to employment as a technologist; or

An appropriate Associates degree (in electrical, electronics, or computer technology), leading to employment as a technician.

Typical high school requirements for entrance into these programs are shown on the chart below. Keep in mind that each institution has its own admission standards. Therefore, these are general requirements.
