Outside academia and management, what are some of the best jobs for an engineer with a masters in engineering degree. I ask because I will be finishing my program in less than a year and I want to know which career paths are the best ones for me to align myself with.

I agree with Kevin. Petroleum engineering is poised for big things so it would be wise to align yourself in that industry.
