I worked 14 years as an electrician and I have gone back to school for Electrical Engineering. I'm about a third of the way through my EE degree, having taken maths up through Calc 3/Diffy Q's and a bunch of other classes. However, the more I get into the curriculum and get an idea for what most engineers do, I'm starting to have doubts. I envisioned designing a product, building and testing it, etc... Or possibly overseeing the electrical systems of an industrial (or utility) setting with some hands on work to maintain or improve the facilities. In short, I don't think I would enjoy sitting in front of a computer all day. I know that many people will say that engineering jobs vary, but I was hoping to find some anecdotal evidence of people who apply their knowledge as opposed to just designing and using theory. I wonder if I am describing more of an EET degree, but I've always thought those degrees were not very useful (that is the picture I've gotten at least, so no offense to anyone that might have an EET degree). Any input from anyone? Thanks.
