Victoria,

Welcome to CR4.

My suggestion is that you put together a list of universities you might want to attend (and why), a list of your qualifications when you apply, your desires for a university (academic and social), what you want to be qualified to do when you graduate from the university and the fields you are interested in working in when you graduate.

Do not mention a desired salary at this point.

We know nothing about you except your name. It will be very difficult to advise you further.

Good luck.

I would try to locate the student counseling department associated with the Synopsys program in your area....Failing that I would look to your instructors for guidance...or students on a similar path, could form a networking group to share information....or some recent alumni that have chosen a similar path....actually probably all of the above...to be a good manager you need to be a good organizer and leader...

I was always told that the first 10 years after you graduate you do engineering. After that, if you are any good, you do management and the only reason you need any engineering knowledge is to be able to understand what your Juniors are talking about.

The other thing I was told is you know when you are a Senior Engineer when you contacts list has more lawyers on it than engineering contractors.

I hope this helps with your engineering career.

I understand these are two different subjects. You should be engineer first to do Engineering Management. Do you mean MBA? Masters in Business Management. You can do MBA after completing your degree in Synopsys.

I was once built from scratch, but...now... a trash.

Probably, there's a lot of successful built from scratch managers out here.

They learn the real thing in the field and their office.

If your good in handling people and you don't mind to be a legalist and numb on peoples real needs and concerns. I bet you will be a successful manager..

When money is there, your most probable inclination is there also.

The world is run with money now...only few remains true and unattached with things.

Take care.

I'm glad to see that no one had a "definitive" answer for you. After all, a direct answer would be biased based on personal experience, and we all have our own experiences.

I'm afraid, my dear, that you are on your own on this one. You have some good advise in this thread, but,,, the work is up to you.

There are a lot of scholarship sites you can refer to, why not apply and who knows. You might be picked lucky.

Here is the link http://www.internationalscholarships.com/

Hi Victoria, welcome to our happy little corner of the world. I would suggest that, if you haven't already, look deep inside yourself to decide if your passion lies with "Engineering" or "Management". It can be a difficult choice, especially if you've been working the ranks of engineering for awhile. Sometimes the "School of Hard Knocks", working in the engineering trenches, coordinating projects and people, is the best school of all and it doesn't cost a cent. More times than not, the best Engineering Managers are chosen from that pool.
