Non-academic positions post graduate school:
With an engineering degree you could pass the bar and become a patent agent; without the bar you could be technical advisor within a law firm. Many companies have been known to pay patent agents’ law school tuition while working as a patent agent. A patent agent + law degree = patent lawyer.
Government (i.e., FDA, policy, etc.)
Consulting (i.e., Bain and Company, McKinsey)
