I am coming towards the end of my BS in Electrical Engineering, and I have decided that I want to earn my PhD in Engineering when it's all said and done. I want to go to a top tier grad school program for my Masters and PhD but my family and I will not be able to really afford that. I also know I need experience to help me earn jobs and gain a career later in life. I know that almost every company offers tuition reimbursement for their employees. Knowing this fact, I have pretty much decided to attempt to earn a job after school and let the company pay for my Master's degree. At the same time, I am also planning to become a licensed Professional Engineer while working too. After earning my MS and PE, I would then quit my job and go to school full-time and try to earn my PhD. With being a PE at the same time, I am hoping I will be able to moon-light as a consultant with the hopes of just making ends meet for the time. The main question I want to know is: is this plan actually possible? Does anyone know of someone who has attempted to do the same thing or something similar? Any other advice for trying to earn a PhD and PE? Thank you for your responses, advice, and time.
