I'm currently working on my bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering at a dutch university. There seems to be a strong conviction around here that you need a master's degree in order to do anything, and in fact 80% of the students in the program go on to get their master's degree straight from their BSc (mostly in the same faculty I would imagine).This came as a bit of a surprise to me as in the U.S. (where I come from) a bachelor's degree is usually considered more than enough to get a job in the industry and people often do just that before pursuing further education. Furthermore as my family is quite poor, I will probably have to work a job for a while before continuing my studies—unless I get into a PhD program back in the US where stipends / PhD straight from bachelors are a thing.How easy is it to get an engineering job in Europe with just a bachelor's actually? Surely aerospace engineering bachelors degree holders don't just work restaurant jobs, right? Anybody in a similar position or would like to offer some advice?
