I'm about to earn my degree in mechanical engineering. What are some good fields to consider after graduation?

The best field is undoubtedly manufacturing. Chemical manufacturing, to be specific. ;)

Mechanical engineers are sought by almost every engineering industry. Examples include chemical, aerospace, automotive, civil, maintenance, process, nuclear, etc. The Bureau of Labor Statistics just came out with data showing the mechanical engineering field will grow by 5% in the next 10 years and over 14,000 new jobs will be created in this field. I believe your question should be where is my passion and where do my interests lie. You picked a great field with infinite opportunity. Congrats on your graduation.

Congratulations on earning your degree soon! I would recommend partnering closely with your university's career center so that you can take advantage of their professional network and learn about the companies that recruit on campus and the jobs they are looking to fill within engineering. Best of luck to you!

Congratulations on being close to earning your degree! I would agree with Sara's recommendations, your opportunities are endless. Engineering is a large field and several companies seek engineers for a wide range of positions. I have even seen mechanical engineer's in the supply chain and operations field. You have a unique mindset that is beneficial to all types of companies. I would recommend seeking opportunities in an industry that aligns with your interests. Also, utilize your career management office for guidance. Typically, your career management office will have the best connections with local companies and will be most familiar with job fields students in your degree field pursue. They will serve as a great resource as you begin your job search.
Best of luck!
