    Hi everyone.

    I'm just looking for advice after graduating in general for civil engineering students. However, I'll just list some of my thoughts below.

    Not sure which way to go after graduating. I have to choose to specialize in either transport / water / structures next year. Not sure which one to choose.

    Currently I'm thinking water because of the study of hydraulics etc which I think would put me in a better chance of going into oil and gas... Which I'm not sure if I want to do.

    My other thought is going into finance.

    Also, when it comes to becoming chartered. Suppose I choose to go into finance, would it be better to become a chartered engineer first to get paid more or become chartered in finance?

    Final question, MEng Vs MsC. What's the difference and what's better? My rough understanding is that the MsC is unitegrated, allows for more specialization but is longer and harder and probably is of better value but not massively.

    Thanks.

    Not at all. Structural would be the best specialisation if you want to go into oil & gas because there's a lot of structural work involved.

    Also, when it comes to becoming chartered. Suppose I choose to go into finance, would it be better to become a chartered engineer first to get paid more or become chartered in finance?
    If you want to go into finance then there's little point in becoming an engineer first.

    Both the same for all intents and purposes.

    Yeah I meant after structural... Too scared to go into structures after some of the scary modules that we've had ha

    Yeah I know what you mean but I'm already in my second year so yolo
