I graduated from ASU with degrees in urban planning and physical geography (focusing on GIS). I've worked a few years now, mostly in unrelated areas, but this past year I managed to obtain a position with Maricopa County that is close to being related to those degrees. They're putting me through courses run through the state to gain knowledge on taxation and other areas, including more advanced areas of GIS.
I still would like to go back to school for my graduate degree. However, I'm not so sure the MUEP at ASU is all that impressive. It has been a few years since I graduated with my undergrad in 2009, but I remain unconvinced that much has changed. They tend to focus more on theory than anything else. Its still an option but I'm considering something else: engineering. Does anyone have any idea how difficult engineering would be to get into with a planner's background? I do know there would be several pre-req undergrad courses to get into
