Options After Graduation
Upon graduation, you will find that you will be well-positioned to choose between industrial employment and graduate study. Students who have chosen to go to industry have taken positions in design, research, development, technical sales, or as field engineers. Students following this path are encouraged to minor in fields such as business, art, English, or communication arts.
More than half of our graduates choose to get Master’s degrees within an engineering specialty. Recent graduates have gone on to complete graduate study in aerospace, chemical, civil, construction, electrical, and mechanical engineering. Graduate-school bound students are encouraged to minor in biology, chemistry, physics or computer science - depending on their intended area of specialization. All Wartburg engineers are strongly encouraged to minor in mathematics.
