  Information about Milwaukee Area Technical College computer engineering, registering in a technical degree program to develop job skills, and taking free practice tests online. Which college degrees will give you the best chances of finding employment after graduation? Some students select a major because it offers practical training that will be valuable in the workplace. Other students choose their major simply because they enjoy the subject material. Given the variety of engineering specializations, there is a niche that will appeal to you as an engineer. From innovation in mechanical design to advances in jet propulsion systems, engineers are at the forefront of development. Further, there is a growing skill shortage of trained engineers across all sectors. The most popular college major is business administration, split evenly between men and women. On the other hand, men make up the vast majority of computer science and engineering majors. For women, the fields of education, English and liberal arts dominate the list.

Online courses foster faculty innovation in teaching, by requiring professors to develop new course materials. Distance education enables students who otherwise wouldn't be able to make the commute to campus to access accredited courses. If you so choose, online education gives you the opportunity to take difficult courses that won't show up on your transcript. Alternatively, you may be able to complete online credits for a grade. Advanced Placement exams (AP Exams) are offered in a variety of subjects, offering college credit for classes that you have taken. Test yourself with free practice exams, before visiting the College Board website to register to take your actual AP Tests. If you earn a score of 3 or higher on an AP Exam, you may be granted advanced placement in college.

Online Courses - MOOCs

Milwaukee Area Technical College computer engineeringThere are almost 7,000 accredited colleges and universities in the United States, which enroll 15 million students, and award 2 million bachelors degrees every year. If you remain true to your career interests, not just going after salary, your overall job earnings will increase as you gain experience. However, if your focus is more on salary alone, there's a higher risk that you'll suffer early signs of burnout, and be forced to change careers later on.

Technical training programs are a low-cost alternative to attending a regular four-year college, and still you may earn good money as a highly-skilled, technical specialist. By taking some of your required degree courses online, you may be able to graduate earlier, thus saving money on tuition. If you're currently employed, you can take online courses in your spare time to advance your career. Massive Open Online Courses are known as MOOCs, utilizing cloud-based software, interactive platforms such as Blackboard, and mobile apps.

Similarly, Khan Academy now offers over 4,000 micro-lectures served through YouTube. Coursera, a competing software platform, has millions of enrolled students from around the world. Recently, MIT announced that it's open courseware platform will be available to students and instructors at no cost.

Engineering Certification

The Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, also referred to as the Engineer in Training (EIT) exam, is the first of two examinations that engineers must pass in order to be licensed as a Professional Engineer. The exam is open to anyone with a degree in engineering, or who is currently enrolled in the last year of an ABET-accredited engineering degree program. The exam is eight hours long, split into four-hour sessions. The morning session is a 120-question test, while the afternoon session consists of 60 in-depth questions. Topics include:

Probability and Statistics
Mechanical Engineering
Electrical Engineering
Material Properties
Fluid Mechanics
Electricity and Magnetism
Thermodynamics
Biochemistry

Results are mailed approximately 2 months after the test date, depending on each state's engineering licensure board. After completing an 4-year apprenticeship, an Engineer in Training (EIT) qualifies to take the Professional Engineer (PE) exam, for certification and licensure. For study purposes, an engineering testing handbook may be downloaded from the NCEES website, the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying.

Design Software

The rise of computer-aided software (CAD) has greatly increased engineering productivity. Physical conditions, such as light and shadow, can be simulated easily. AutoCAD was released way back in 1982, and Solidworks 3D-modeling software came out in 1995. However, efficient 3D modeling only become widespread after graphics-processing improved to the point of being able to render high resolution images made of hundreds of sub-objects.

Structures

Few 21st century projects come close to the size and scope of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Built from 1998 to 2008, LHC is one of the most advanced research facilities ever designed. LHC accelerates two high-energy particles in opposite directions across a 27-kilometer (17-mile) ring in order to observe the collision. The particles travel at near the speed of light within two vacuum tubes, and are guided by superconducting electromagnets. These electromagnets are special in and of themselves, requiring a temperature colder than -271.3°C.

Nursing & Medical Job Listings

Earning a CNA degree (Certified Nursing Assistant) is the first step towards becoming a fully-qualified nurse. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to join the workforce quickly. The next step in a nursing career is to become a LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) or LVN ( Licensed Vocational Nurse). These are year-long programs, in which you'll work under an RN distributing meds, treating wounds, and providing basic patient care.

In order to become an RN (Registered Nurse), a bachelors degree in nursing is recommended. RN's command a greater salary, and are responsible for an enlarged scope of practice over LPNs and CNAs. Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in a hospital setting. A 4-year BSN program allows students to further specialize in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health. After completing your nursing education, you must be licensed by the state in which you'll be practicing, given that state boards of nursing each have specific certification requirements.
