Education preparation to become an engineer involves the obtainment of a bachelors degree, and for those who want to do research, a graduate degree is also required. Engineers which offer their services to the public must be licensed. In addition to the standard engineering degree, many colleges offer a 2 or 4 year degree in engineer technology. This type of education is needed for the engineer technician.
The engineer technician is not qualified to register as a professional engineer under the same terms as graduates with degrees in engineering, although engineer technicians may do very similar work as those who have a bachelor’s degree in engineering.
For more information about education required for the mechanical engineer in the United States go to Occupational Outlook Handbook – Mechanical Engineer provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The career outlook for the mechanical engineer overall looks good, although employment is expected to grow slightly more slowly through 2013 relative to other occupations. Developing technologies in biotechnology, materials science, and nanotechnology will result in new job opportunities for mechanical engineers.

Resumes are impersonal, dry and in most cases not even accurate. We tend to place on resumes what we think others want to see. As a result, our true selves and what we want and are capable of are rarely visible in our resume. More important is to be ready for the next steps. So, what does a person need to do?
