post graduate delimma

post graduate delimma

post graduate delimma

Hi, I have just completed my Bachelors of Engineering in Industrial and
manufacturing, and now i am planning to do my Masters from Canada/ America.
i have been really confused as to what i should pursue in my post graduate studies. initially i thought of opting for a management sciences(operations research, supply chain) program. But then i thought some diversity would be good and an environmental degree would be helpful. But i read in a forum somewhere that environmental engineers were finding it very hard to get work in the US or Canada.
So just a little advise from you guys would be helpful, as to what degree i should pursue and the job market for that particular program. And also with having two degree (graduate and post graduate degree) in different subject how will employers view me? is it going to be an advantage or not?

Here are some of the programs i am thinking of
1)Environmental engineering
2)management science or industrial engineering
3)mechanical engineering
4)petroleum engineering

You appear to have things back asswards.

First off "what do you want to be when you grow up?"

Then determine if this is a moderately realistic goal, if there is market demand for it etc.

Then consider what additional education will help you get there.

I see you are pretty new here, so you probably don't know much about the "search" feature of eng-tips.com. We discuss getting a Masters immediately after a BS in several dozen recent threads and you might get some insight into the opinions of members by doing a search on "masters degree", I did that and found
