    yeah, i've heard that engineering pays reallywell too and that once you've got your degree you can do pretty much any job, in finance, in industry, work with other engineers etc.. but i've got 1 question though, is there a type of engineer that's paid better like a chemical engineer or a computer engineer? just wondering..
