Hi everyone! I’m just preparing for the real world outside of college with a BS in Mechanical Engineering, but I’ve been stuck in between going to grad school or entering straight into industry. I want to lean more towards the area of computer science to further my studies and career, however, I’ve been advised by some to just learn it on the side and go straight into the workforce and find another role eventually down the road. What are your thoughts? I have little coding experience btw.

As a mechanical engineer, I would recommend doing your master's in computer science. It would be different if you wanted to learn something more about pumps, manufacturing, etc., related to ME. Nowadays, a computer science degree will take you far; combined with a CS master's is a powerful combination. I have about seven years of experience, and I'm returning to school for a CS degree.

Would open up a lot of options, not a bad idea. I bet you’d be a hot commodity for robotics companies among other things

If you have the opportunity to get a job and learn the additional skills you need after the fact, then go for it. There's always the bootcamp option.

Hey everyone, thanks for the comments. This is really helpful and I think I’m going to be leaning towards getting a MS in CS. Wish I could reply but as a student, fishbowl restricts my access.

Hey! I’m new here and would like some input. I’ve been working in a new position for almost 5 months. In that time I’ve witnessed some unethical and lots of unprofessional behavior. I’ve been yelled at and berated by my coworker 3 separate times because of minor errors. I’m ready to quit. There are so many major issues in this company that I don’t know if I want to subject my mental health to this degree of toxicity. I just don’t know how to move forward from here.
