Details about my career

  • Estimated tutition is around $22k


  • Estimated salary: $30k and many will employ graduates from JMU such as NASA, airports, and automobile manufactures. Which will be relevant in the next 10 years

  • It takes 4 years to achieve a Bachelor in Engineering

  • The sole purpose off an engineer is to solve problems and to me that sounds fantastic

  • NASA is one of the best places to pursue and so is Automobile manufacturing

  • One personality strength i have is that I like to work hands on, which has a big role in an engineer.

  • There many advantages as working as an engineer. I get to work in what i love. I also get to solve daily problems. And i have a chance of making the world a better place.

  • The disadvantage is that I might be traveling a lot. That means i might not stay in one place for too long. This could be a bad thing or a good thing. A good thing because I might be able to travel the world.
