Default Bachelor degree VS Honours Degree

Hi, for example NTU degree in electrical and electronic engineering, in term of honours (1st class, 2nd upper and so on). how much does it affect my 1st job and salary? so what if i get 1st class in EEE?

is engineering field a dead end??

it makes a difference during the first couple of jobs and if you want to join the civil service. after that, it's performance that counts.

i have a first in engineering from NTU too. i move to a commercial role then a business development role that gives me a lot of mileage in my career.

In civil service, it matters for the rest of the officer's career.

Thanks! Means I must maintain my CGPA! Anyway I will be specialising in Power. Do you know any of the good company or suitable career path for me? I don't intend to stay in the engineering forever.

Civil services? What are examples other than military?
