Difference between degrees - RF Cafe Forums
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 Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.
Post subject: Difference between degrees.

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 anything.

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.
