    I'm sure there are many others here at MacRumors that are also graduating this year.

    I am graduating from the University of Vermont with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Mathematics. We have a really great slogan here at our engineering school that states "Mechanical Engineering - the most B.S. for the money".

    I am still looking for jobs after graduation, I want to stay in the area because of family and my gf, but it's hard because there are not many entry engineering jobs in the area.

    I should end up with a degree in a couple of months but I'm coming back next year for another one. :eek:

    I'm graduating this summer with a BA in graphic design. The work's assessed in a couple of weeks, but I don't technically graduate til July.

    Having said that, there's a marking boycott from one of the staff unions, so I may not graduate for a while yet. :rolleyes: Fortunately, the bit of paper bit of a design degree is far less important than the portfolio, so I don't think not technically graduating is going to hinder looking for a job. I feel for the people doing more academic degrees though.

    As for plans afterwards, I'm definitely looking for a job, I can't wait to get out there and start working. I'm looking for a job in a design agency, preferably doing print based work rather than screen based. I used to live in Edinburgh, and I'd really like to go back so that's ideally where I'm looking for a job, although Glasgow's quite appealing as well.

    Graduating December '06, which is still technically this year ;)

    Getting a B.S. in Civil Engineering.

    It's too bad I don't really give a damn about my major now. I'm not really sure what I want to do, considering I have no interest in it now. My parents still insist I take the E.I.T. "just in case", but I think that's utter BS as I already told them I don't give a damn.

    Meh, well I'll have a degree in a technical area I guess.

    I'll graduate Uni (you live in a college while you go to Uni) sometime in July. I took a year off from one winter to the next which is why I'm graduating mid-year.

    I'll have a BSc (Chemistry).

    All you guys who have already posted, how are you getting BSc's in Engineering? I didn't think that was possible? An Engineering degree here is called a BE or a BEng. Probably because of the different systems I suppose.
