Making a career in Engineering is not as easy as it sounds. Of course, the coursework is taxing, however, choosing a course is also difficult given the number of programs and fields to explore in engineering. There are multiple branches of engineering today and choosing one is dependent on a couple of factors that are important before you take the plunge. 


Most of us today live a very lavish lifestyle and want to have the best of everything. Is it that easy? It is if you’re raking in the big bucks.
