I'm interesting in electrical and/or mechanical engineering. I'm considering going to university for it in the next couple years. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any books that taught concepts in either of these fields of engineering (preferably mechanical, books on motors, hydraulics and such are welcome too). I'm just looking to do some research in it before it because I find this stuff fascinating and I need something to teach myself a little more about how things work.
I'm trying to figure out how to get a job in the oil fields i have no experience and no degrees or anything i'm fresh out of high school and around how much will i make?and were would i apply?
What kind of jobs can i get?
Hi I am a mechanical engineer major. Is it necessary to take a business major or minor to become involved in management within an engineering company? It would probably make it much easier to attain a job within that realm, no? Can I enter this realm without taking business minor/major, as many technological company leaders have done?
So im a thirteen year old boy with a big dream. Ive drawn up some sketches of some sorta new animals. Kinda like pokemon. So when I get older I want to use these drawings to make...... Pet robots.

Im at the top of all my classes so im confident. This has been a life long dream so please do everything in detail
Govt, psu, private, mnc - power plant job in india for mechanical engineer ?
This is in comparision with electronics or computer science
I was a mechanical engineer for 2 years and later became a project engineer for 2.5 years an oil refining engineering inc.
Now, when I come to the job hunting in a new country, CANADA, I don't know which way to go? I prefer project engineer a little bit more than Mechanical Engr. coz I think Project Engr. will lead to Project Manager in the future, which will generally have a higher salary than Technical positions.
But the problem is, will Project Engineer has the opportunity of advancement to Project manager?? Some people tell me Project Managers most likely are promoted from Sr. Technical Engineers instead of Project Engineer.
Anyone who knows where Project Engineer will go, how they will advance?
Any comments are appreciated
As i never had such problem and i dont know Jeddah pls suggest
I'm currently a Sr. in high school interested in mechanical engineering, i was curious about a few things, how to get into goverment jobs in the engineering field, difficulty, college courses, job outlook, typical work day, pay, loacation, and also i heard some companies will pay for your school if you come work for them when you graduate college, any information will be extremely helpful thank you....
If i continue this what will be the future ?whether it is good or bad? ...i am in dilemma, give me some suggestions it will really help me????
Amma, I am frustrated today with my dilemma. I am writing this just to went out. I am a 30 year old male presently in U.S. for past 8 years. I have a younger sis happily married with a kid here in U.S, while my parents who have retired from their careers stay in India. I have got a Master's in Mech. Engineering from a U.S. universty and have been working as a Sr. Mechanical Engineer in a fortune 100 company. I am a high acheiver and presently working on my part-time M.B.A from a top20 business school. I intend to acheive a lot professionally and have a well chalked out plan. I am really persistent in things I do and I acheive what I want no matter how may times or how long it takes. I believe in what I believe and do not get swayed so easily. This might be one of the reason why I chose to be a Mechanical Engineer. As a kid I dreamed of being one and persisted in becoming one inspite of social/parental pressure and lure of making high bucks as a S/W engineer. I have been highly successful as a Mechanical Engineer and probably in top 5?f salary bell for my qualifications. To the point:I recently went to India in August with the intention of choosing a girl to get married to. I happened to talk to couple of girls and narrowed it down to 2 of them. I took my time to talk to both of them by phone after meeting them initially. One of the girls was really beautiful 5'8" tall (I am 6'1" and handsome), I always wanted to marry someone really beautiful (We men are suckers to beautiful women) but at the same time I wanted someone who can be really independent and who can take up a career (which I thought would allow her to have individuality and be independent). Since this girl had a M.Sc in Microbiology, I was not sure of her prospects getiing a H1B visa. Moreover I had some concers about her dad's job (He is Commercial Tax officer) as I do not have high opinion of people taking bribes. Though I hate to judge people, I thought if I marry this girl and later come to know that her Dad takes bribes I will not be able to respect him for which she might feel bad. Added to this the girl said that she will not be able to join me until April or May of next year (My plan is to get married in Feb' 08 and bring whomever I am going to marry along with me). Due to this reasons and reasons I will mention next I picked the other girl.
The other girl is fairly good-looking 5'5" tall and has completed her M.C.A and working in India for a good S/W company. She is 26 years of age too. When I met her the first time I was really impressed with the soft nature of her father who is working as a Bank Manager. She has a younger sister in U.S who has pursued her Master's and has been working here. The girl herself has applied for H1B for this year with the help of her sister and was successful in getting it approved. Though the parents offered to give some dowry during marriage, I strictly rejected it as I am totally against the dowry system and I hate to sell myself (and other reason is I believe in the concept of "no free money" and I hate to spend others money). I have been talking to my fiance (over the phone) and found her to be really nice. She told me a lot of things about her family without any reservations except for one thing. She mentioned that her Dad wanted to have a male child initially and was really disppointed when she was born. They left her (my fiance) at her grand mother's home immediately after she was born and did not take her back for nearly 1&1/2 to 2 years. They named her only after 2 years. I felt really bad about the whole thing when she mentioned this to me and so't of lost my respect for her parents. She also mentioned that her Dad likes her younger sister more then her though she claimed that both her parents loved her. The one thing my fiance did not mention to me was about her younger sister's love. Her younger sister has been in love with a guy here in U.S. for past 3 years and has been going around with him. She works as a S/W engineer for a really big Mechanical Engineering company in U.S. (I had a job offer from this company sometime back which I rejected due to my personal reasons). I have a lot of friends working as Mechanical Engineers in this company and happened to know about this love-relationship of the younger sister while talking to my friends casually. I consider myself a liberal and I did not feel anything wrong about it. I totally understood why my future-brides parents would not mention about their younger daughter's love-courtship to me/my parents (due to the conservative Indian societical attitude). During our normal conversation I told my fiance that I knew about her sister's relationship with her boyfriend and was okay with it. Then she mentioned to me that the guys (who is in love with her sister) parents approached my fiance's parents about marrying her sister sometime back but the girls parents wanted them to wait until they can marry of their elder daughter. I talked to her younger sister and felt her to be really nice girl. We are officially supposed to get engaged on Nov 25th' 07(without me being in India - its pretty normal in South India) and get married on Feb 15th. While talking to my fiance yesterday she told me that she will not join me after getting married as her parents want to her to attend her sister's wedding in april-may timeframe.
I felt that they were trying to access my reaction to this through her though they haven't mentioned any of this to my parents. I am so p****d off now with her parent's attitude who are planning for their younger daughter's marriage even before the elder gets married. Looking at all this I suddenly felt the parents are trying to get rid of my fiance somehow. They seem to treat her like a 'loser'. Now looking at all this I am frustrated and am having second thoughts about the engagement. Is it better to call of now before I develop more ill feeling for her parents and her? I hate to be tagged a loser, please advise.
Give me clear cut ideas regthis job.....

I'm currently a Junior in high school with a 2.98 GPA. I took the ACT once and got a 23 Composite (with a 23 on Science). I plan to take the ACT again because I know that I can do a lot better! I took the SAT and get my scores back in a few days but my guess is somewhere between 1050 and 1200 for the two-part. I want to major in either Mechanical Engineering or Nuclear Engineering. I have a boat-load of extra curriculars including: Golf, Volleyball, Ski Club, Intermurals, CYO sports, and others and I have had a job since Sophomore year. I've taken lots of honors classes but no AP. What do you think my chances are?
I am a highschool junior and am thinking about majoring in engineering. I am not real good in math ( pre-calc) or Chem this year. I am going to a harder school this year than before. The average SAT score is 1200. It is one of the best schools in indiana ( West Lafayette JR/SR high) . I was wondering if i would have a chance in the engineering courses and if i should go to a school that is known for engineering like purdue or go to a less known engineering school like indiana or wisconsin. Thanks for your opinions. If anybody is an enginner could you please explain your avg work day

I'm currently a dual concentration in Accounting/Finance. Personally, I find Acct to be dreadful.. I'd probably rather watch paint dry on the wall; however, I do agree that it's useful to know. Right now as it stands, Northeastern has a decent business, nursing, engineering, and criminal justice school - from my understanding. I'm trying to go into the Marine Corps OSC between my Jr. and Sr. year and become commisioned as a 2nd Lt. This is obviously not guaranteed because it's so competitive, so it's never a bad choice to have a plan B.
I was thinking of switching to engineering (mechanical), but I'm not sure I wanted to stay an extra year at college. I decided it's best to switch to Economics and double minor in math and business. I know I want to go to grad school eventually and obtain an MBA so I feel that taking finance twice in ugrad and grad would be redundant?
My issue is that salaries/jobs may be skewed due to the fact that top liberal arts colleges and ivy leaguer's take econ as their "business" education. NU is a no-name Economics school and I'm curious whether high marks/GPA will bolster my case for jobs. Or should I just stay accounting and grind it out.
One thing that stands out though is the Co-op program, currently, I'm working at State Street Global Advisors (albiet in a back-office job), it's still a good company to have on your resume, so I'm hoping that a no-name econ school combined with high marks, good co-ops, and solid EC's will help me get to where I want.
What do you guys think.. stick to bizz or switch to econ?
