I am beginning my masters degree in mechanical engineering, and my advisor wants me to get my phd. So, for those of you with advanced engineering degrees or those who work with those people, what are the pros/cons of a phd in mechanical engineering? My area of research would be modeling and simulation of automotive systems while working in conjunction with either a hybrid electric or full electric vehicle design/build. I would like to work in Motorsports or R&D for an automotive company, but I am also considering law school. Thanks in advance to those who respond, and sorry for no pic.
