Main Question or Discussion Point
Hi, I'm looking for some input from industry professionals on the employability of an individual with only an Associate's Degree in Engineering Science from a Community College. Generally this degree is meant only to get you into a 4 year school so you can finish a bachelors, but it involves taking Calculus through multi-variable and differential equations as well as calc based physics I and II (plus the optional Modern Physics). Usually Statics, Dynamics, Mechanics of Materials, Circuit Analysis, Digital Electronics, and Computer Aided Engineering Classes are also taken with a Final Design Project in the last semester. It seems like someone possesing these skills would be highly marketable, if not as a full fledged engineer but as someone doing either light engineering work or perhaps technical sales. What kind of positions would you consider hiring someone with this background for? what kind of starting salaries can they expect. There seems to be little to know info on this degree, considering that it's sole intent is to get you into a 4 year school. Personally I'm impatient and want to get my hands dirty in some real work, while not racking up debt (maybe get an employer to pay my way through the rest). I appreciate all responses, Thanks.
