Many undergraduate engineering students choose a natural, seamless progression to a master's degree while others turn from the post-bachelor's collegiate path to enter the workforce, join the military, or raise a family. It can be difficult to transition back into a master's program when the years have passed and personal or professional responsibilities have multiplied.
