Is it possible to get an engineering job with a criminal record?
2 years ago I was convicted of possession w/ intent to sell marijuana (a felony in my state). I'm about to graduate college with an economics degree, but my job prospects are seriously limited as most of the jobs in that field are finance and banking related, and having a criminal record makes it nearly impossible to get those.
Therefore I'm considering staying in school, and if I did so I would be looking at going for mechanical engineering. I would be putting in 100% effort so I'm confident I would be able to do well in it. However I don't want to waste my time and money if I still won't be able to get a job.
If anybody has any input, it would be much appreciated.

If there are any professional and/or charitable organizations in your country that can give you advice, I suggest that would be the best place to ask.
