And no, there is no data for those with a Masters or PhD in robotics.
i'm a computer science major...although not from CMU, I wonder how much difference that makes.
It's funny, I always thought computer science was rather basic and mechanical engineering was more "advanced"; so the pay would be higher for a mechanical engineer. Looks like my assumption was the exact opposite of reality.
Wait so why is CS the highest annual wage? Is it that they are the least in population? The most wanted of all of them/useful?I have wanted to major in EE for a long time now, but this is making me want to reconsider...
Just to put things into perspective, a pharmacist straight out of pharmacy school (equivalent of a masters) makes $110K+.
well we all need drugs don't we?and some would argue that pharmacists are trained very well so they earn they're pay.
I think im stuck! I need some advice: I want whatever career I go into to be invlolved with mechanical, electrical and comuter engineering...not just mechanical or electrical, but all of them (am i too greedy?). what type of program could i take which involves all of them?...i also (maybe) want to be involved somehow with NASA, astronautical engineering...
To tell you the truth, I was planning to go into robotics. Then one day i met someone who had graduated from MIT with a manufacturing engineering degree (he was one of 6 people from 300 who passed). I talked to him about what I wanted to do and mentioned I wanted to go into robotics. He told me that it wasnt the best direction to go in because i would have to constantly keep myself always updated on new technologies and stuff... so thats why im stuck...and have been for about a year and a half now...and im running out of time...(well ive got a year and a quarter..but still...)The one i like the most would be... no clue actually. Im the same with sports...I like swimming, biking, and running, but don't want to do just one...I cant just make a choice of one and drop the other two...instead I joined a triathlon club! and its great! ...
He told me that it wasnt the best direction to go in because i would have to constantly keep myself always updated on new technologies and stuff...
QuoteHe told me that it wasnt the best direction to go in because i would have to constantly keep myself always updated on new technologies and stuff... Well, your other option is to stay in a field where nothing changes. Just same old same old for many many years. Just keep up with state of the art stuff, hang out at SoR, and you'll be fine. Only lazy people want to stop learning after graduation
