So where did ATS members get their higher education? Are you in school, thinking about going somewhere or already have your alma mater?

Me, I'm at Penn State, University Park (the main campus). I'm almost through with my second year and next year I finally get to focus on my major, a Bachelor of Science in economics with a minor in international business.

I went to Yale and majored in Political studies. I was a member of the Skull & Bones fraternity and a personal friend of George W Bush.

ok ... maybe I exaggerated a bit ...
... I went to Wolverhampton University (when it was still a college) and spent two happy years tormenting the lecturers of the Computer / Business studies department.

I graduated with a degree in Graphic Design and a minor in Computer Science. That degree has gotten some hard knocks and severe unemployment. I plan to return to college very soon, to re-train as a draftsman (probably electrical).

University of Tennessee, dual major: Forensic Anthropology/Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology. I figured out early that a law enforcement career was not for me, so I went into computers and networking. Makes perfect sense to me!

I just went to my local colleges. Ill be back soon enough, my plan now is to go back and get an education degree from University of Central Florida. I would like to do grad school and do something. Teaching math to those who've never seen it should be cool.

Okay, so, what do you all think of as the most "useful" college degree (one that can bring in the money - of course, most of the time, it still depends on who you know)?

I've pretty much decided that I want to get a degree in Electrical Engineering. But there are so many other engineering discplines to choose from!

To give you some idea of the types of engineering available:
Computer Engineering
General Engineering
Engineering Design
Systems Engineering
Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering
Electrical Engineering
Materials & Chemical Engineering
Nuclear Engineering

And then you even have sub-categories of the types of engineering above:

Chemical

Agricultural
Biological and Biosystems
Chemical
Environmental
Food
Forestry
Materials
Plastics
Water Resource

Civil

Building
Civil
Construction

Electrical

Communications
Computer
Electrical
Electromechanical Systems
Electronic Systems
Software

Engineering Management

Industrial
Integrated / Unified
Production
Systems

Engineering Sciences

Engineering Chemistry
Engineering Math
Engineering Physics

Geotechnical

Gas
Geological
Geomatics
Metallurgical
Mineral
Mining
Oil
Petroleum

Mechanical

Aerospace
Automotive
Biomedical
Mechanical
Naval



It can be overwhelming to say the least. When I look at all that there is, I have trouble sticking to just one thing. Sometimes I just want to go the easy way and go for a degree in something easy (maybe a degree in business, like most people, lol), just to get the degree.

I want to be able to create things though! And to see the fruits of my labor. I also want to make a lot of money by doing something that I love (those people are few and far between though).

So, again, what is the most useful college degree? (I know this is opinion of course, but I'd like to see responses to the question and a reason why you think your choice is the most useful).

Love teh meatwad ^_^

I know exactly what you're saying. I'm into photography because it's what I love and what I seem to be great at. I know that its a risky business though, and you really have to work to make good money.

Photography can bring in some serious cash if you work for the right types of businesses (*advertising* :-D ). What matters most, of course, is that you love to do it.

Thanks for loving my meatwad. :-D

Still in high school :shk:, going to a college up North (far far away) that will let me take a year off before starting, has exchange programs, and majors in creative writing. It exists! I forgot the name but its somewhere near New York.

I also want to major in photography, modern painting, and small business management. ERGH Ive got a ways to go! But then again, I could change my mind tomorrow so you never know. I might not even go to college, or I might end up working in a place I hate instead of doing what I really want.....ahhh!

edit for grammar and doubt
