A Bachelor's degree is the degree to start with if you want to jump right into the field of automotive engineering. This degree is very in-depth; you complete at least 120 credits over the course of eight full-time semesters. You may take engineering courses like Alternate Fuel Systems, Aerodynamics, and Methods for Vehicle Testing.

Lab courses are an integral part of your education. Whether you work alone or with peers, lab courses allow you to work directly with engineering materials and learn how they work in different vehicle components.

If you decide to earn a Master's degree or PhD, you can get ready to take high-level courses like Internal Combustion Engines, Embedded Control Systems, and Fuel Cells & Fuel Processors. These degrees both require the completion of a Bachelor's degree; on top of that, a Master's degree takes two additional years, and a PhD takes about five to seven years.

The final step to starting your engineering career in Massachusetts involves getting your license from the Board of Registration of Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyors. This process requires you to pass the Principles & Practice of Engineering exam and register with the board.

Upon graduating, consider joining a local professional group like the Massachusetts Society of Professional Engineers. This group offers continuing education courses and job listings.
