At the associate level, an engineering program can prepare you to work as an engineering assistant or technician. These degrees teach students to work under staff-level engineers to carry out engineering plans. The bachelor's degree is the program you will need to qualify for entry-level engineering positions. These four-year programs cover engineering fundamentals like statics, dynamics, and physics, as well as classes in the student's engineering focus area. The master's degree can help current engineers prepare for management positions or can allow them to specialize within their engineering field. If you're looking for a career in university instruction or advanced research and development, then a PhD could be a good option for you.
