    I'm entering into my final year of a B.Sc.E in Electrical Engineering, and I'm contemplating grad school, more specifically a M.Sc.E or M.Eng. in EE as well. I enjoy school greatly but the style of grad school is much more independent and research oriented then the undergrad style, so I'm not sure if I would really enjoy it or not.

    Also, the cost would also be a factor, as a masters would take at least 1 or 2 years to complete and I'm not sure if it would really be worth it in the long run. What are everyone's thoughts on the matter?

    Many companies will pick up the tab of related grad-school courses. You may want to look into that.

    If you are contemplating being an Engineer for the next several years, then I would definitely go to grad school. I dropped out of my part time MSEE program when I realized my future was elsewhere.
