Howdy everyone,

Just out of curiosity (and boredom) I thought I would do a poll to see how many people have engineering degrees and how many people have nothing. Feel free to post any thoughts you may have also.

Ummm........

Wow, make me actually think about this.:confused:

I guess I could probably add about 20 more options, but I'll leave it up to you to decide what you want to call yourself. :vfunny:

Couple

I couldn't decide what I wanted to do when I grew up and after getting out of the service I got a degree in Clinical Psych (doing the experiments not couseling). When there was no money in the lab work I got into the automotive field and went back for the Quality Engineering stuff. Now I want to go for the MBA but the $$$$ may keep me away, besides if I couldn't go full time it would take me way too long to get done.
:bonk: :thedeal: :confused:

If you graduated from the college of engineering but the degree does not have engineering in the title,(such as mechanical engineering) but you still graduated from the college of engineering is that considered an engineering degree! :bonk:
I'd call that an engineering degree.

I've seen Graduate "Engineers" who are still wet behind the ears come and go over the years and they normally run away screaming that they "just can't take it anymore" after about six months.

Nothing to be sorry about

Sorry folks but I did it the hard way.
Nothing wrong with that Geoff. When I started in the automotive arena I was assigned to work with a guy that had retired from Dearborn Gauge. Talk about someone who knew his way around a Bridgeport!!!!
The apprenticeship I did with him helped me get a job as a gage tech, and I went from there. I enjoy the new ideas from a raw engineer but it has to be moderated with the wisdom of experience.
Book smart is one thing and field application is another.
