Finance BS regret - 2nd degree in ME Engineering ?????

  1. Jun 3, 2015 #1
    Thank god I found this website! Bear with me, its a bit of a long explanation before the question..
    So let me start by saying that I'm a finance major, senior year, excellent GPA, but tremendously unmotivated for prospective business/finance industry. I love sciences, I love maths and I've always had this huge crush on anything relating technology/mechanical structures, processes etc. I know that love alone for these subjects is not enough, performance and aptitude for them are crucial, from an academic/intellectual point of view I'm fairly good at STEM subjects. Even though my school didn't required CALC I for finance I took it already, gotta love those integrals!!. I'll be taking Calc II fall and Calc III during Spring just before I graduate. I want to get a mechanical engineering degree after I graduate... but there's a catch

    The thing is I'm a foreign student meaning my options are limited. For the sake of simplicity I have to get a job in the finance sector after I graduate so I can stay in the U.S, love KC ... specially those sweet bbq ribs around here!. Problem is I can't stay in school to start engineering BS, my visa doesn't allows it, if I want to stay I need a job in the financial industry. My idea, bit nuts and all, was to work full time while I attend Community College for an Associates Degree in Engineering... possible ???? ... and then transfer to a nearby 4year school to finish it, having already knocked off my Gen Ed courses and Calc I-III would make the workload easier? or would I have to take them all over again?

    Thanks a lot guys!
