    I graduated with an Industrial Engineering degree in December of 2007. In school I had great internship experiences and at graduation I had 2 job offers. But right before I could accept one, my husband's job changed and we moved to Michigan. In Michigan in 2008, there just weren't jobs. Shortly after, we had our first child who was born with special needs and I knew I needed to be home with him.

    Hello, I just finished my first semester at college as a chemical engineering major but lately i am been putting a lot of thought about whether or not I want to stay in chem-e, or if I want to switch to Mechanical Engineering. Or, if I want to stay in Chemical but get a Mech-E minor. I was very undecided about which discipline to pick when applying to college and at Rowan, you can't just apply as engineering undecided. You have to pick a concentration when you apply. I loved chemistry ...

    Rachel,
    
    This is a great question.  There is probably no simple answer.  I love hearing about students that like to tinker and make things.  It is a great skill that will serve you well.  An interest in both mechanical and chemical is a great ...
