Hi, My name is Ken. I am currenlty 42 Years old and have been working as a freelance camera operator for several years. After much struggle, frustration, and recently, time spent with a career counselor to find my true vocation, I have finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up: an engineer. I am drawn to aeronautical and environmental egineering as well as the possibility of working with architects in construction. In short, I am excited about the possibility to work with my hands and be part of a project that designs and manufactures objects and systems. It seems that a degree in MECHANICAL ENGINEERING will give me the option to enter some of the industries above. I currently hold a bachelors in liberal arts and realize I will have to start from scratch to earn a bachelors in engineering. When I finally graduate, I will be close to 50 years old (when many engineers are probably retiring). I am wondering if I have any chance of employment at this age and would greatly appreciate any advice! Thanks so much!!
