Difference between degrees - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

Here in Canada we have a B.Eng, a B.Sc (Eng) and a B.A (Eng). Is there such thing as a B.Eng. designation in the U.S.? I have only seen B.Sc. and B.A. (Eng) on job sites. Will an employer look at a B.Sc. (Eng) roughly the same way as a B.Eng. grad?

Dude, do not hassle with the PEO dogs in Canada. A while ago they distributed the power in 120V/25Hz/DC format, that's their expertise. In Canada you can be only overeducated or undereducated. With PhD they will retrain you to taxi driver. My personal experience, 95% of the Canadian projects are completely screwed up. Not by engineers, but by internal politics and young managers. They completely miss practical experince a let you do your work when everything is stuck. :lol: Pack your stuff and vote with feet.

Hey exCanadian a man after my own heart. We should talk more.. you must be from Ottawa, or Toronto. :-D

You are right -- I could not agree with you more !

You don't even need a PEng to do anything !

That is for power and control guys.

Why would you need a PEng to work in the commercial market ?

You are not signing anything.

You must be from a school that does not grant the BASc. From Ottawa ?

Canadian schools have the BASc, Bachelor of Applied Science and then some have the BEng.

The BASc, is like a BSc EE in the USA, Bachelor of Science. The BEng, I am not really sure what that means exactly, so I can't tell you.

dude. I have Masters from Vienna.

The Canadian market is dull. Depends whom you know and brown-nose. Engineering practices are not on the fore-front as claimed. They design switched power supply. That's it. Practical knowledge of RF is missing, everything is purchased from US or China. I wasted my time teaching there.

canadians, like the british that created them, love butt kissing and titles and knowing so and so. everything is nortel related, who u knew there, who your manager was and so on.

right. Nortel is financed from taxes and RIFs. And the british milk it. Not avoidable company, hen-house for teen engineers. Good hiding spot for talkers. The older work.

About RF Cafe

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
