Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.
Post subject: Difference between degrees.
postPosted: Fri Jun 04, 2004 10:41 am
Here in Canada we have
a B.Eng, a B.Sc (Eng) and a B.A (Eng). Is there such thing as a B.Eng.
designation in the U.S.? I have only seen B.Sc. and B.A. (Eng) on job
sites. Will an employer look at a B.Sc. (Eng) roughly the same way as
a B.Eng. grad?

Dude, do not hassle with the PEO dogs in Canada.
A while ago they distributed the power in 120V/25Hz/DC format, that's
their expertise. In Canada you can be only overeducated or undereducated.
With PhD they will retrain you to taxi driver. My personal experience,
95% of the Canadian projects are completely screwed up. Not by engineers,
but by internal politics and young managers. They completely miss practical
experince a let you do your work when everything is stuck. :lol: Pack
your stuff and vote with feet.

Hey exCanadian a man after my own heart. We should talk more.. you
must be from Ottawa, or Toronto. :-D
You are right -- I could
not agree with you more !
You don't even need a PEng to do anything
That is for power and control guys.
Why would you need
a PEng to work in the commercial market ?
You are not signing

You must be from a school that does not grant the BASc. From Ottawa
Canadian schools have the BASc, Bachelor of Applied Science
and then some have the BEng.
The BASc, is like a BSc EE in the
USA, Bachelor of Science. The BEng, I am not really sure what that means
exactly, so I can't tell you.

dude. I have Masters from Vienna.
The Canadian market is dull.
Depends whom you know and brown-nose. Engineering practices are not
on the fore-front as claimed. They design switched power supply. That's
it. Practical knowledge of RF is missing, everything is purchased from
US or China. I wasted my time teaching there.

canadians, like the british that created
them, love butt kissing and titles and knowing so and so. everything
is nortel related, who u knew there, who your manager was and so on.

right. Nortel is financed from taxes
and RIFs. And the british milk it. Not avoidable company, hen-house
for teen engineers. Good hiding spot for talkers. The older work.

the only good and hired engineers at
nortel are the english from england or english from canada. others are
no wonder the americans left england !
