Update from an OLD post on 40 year old engineering student thread730-439198

(OP)
If anyone cared I just wanted to give an update on what I did and where I am currently at. I took the plunge last year and gave my two weeks notice to my employer and they were understanding. As of right now I graduate in November with a BSEE and I already have a job lined up. Unfortunately it is not with my old employer as they are currently going through a budget issue but the job I do have lined up is with an Engineering company which will have me supporting my old employer for at least a year. After that I will be working remotely most of my time from home to support various other plants.

Looking back at the decision I think it was worth it in every way. Thanks for all the advice from the other thread as that really helped me contemplate my decision prior to making it.

Good news stories are always welcome. Best of luck in your future career.

I wish you all the best! Hopefully the next post from you will be an interesting problem to discuss or a post that helps another forum member with their challenge =)

I love a happy ending. ... and a new beginning.

To the Toolmaker, your nice little cartoon drawing looks cool, but your solid model sucks. Do you want me to fix it, or are you going to take all week to get it back to me so I can get some work done?

Congratulations and all the best!

White Paper - How ESI is Helping Move New Medical Device Product to Market Quicker & More Cost Effic
Early Supplier Involvement has long been a strategy employed by manufacturers to produce innovative products. Now, it almost seems like a necessity. Because decisions made in the design phase can positively affect product quality and costs, this can help add value to OEM bottom lines. This white paper will discuss many facets of ESI, including why it’s so valuable today, what challenges limit the benefits of ESI, how cost is impacted, and more. Download Now
White Paper - Moving to a Driverless Future
This white paper describes what we see as the best practices to support a sustainable engineering process for autonomous vehicle design. It exposes how to use simulation and testing in common frameworks to enable design exploration, verification and validation for the development of autonomous cars at a system, software and full-vehicle level to drive a mature product development process for automated driving.
