Help with Deciding on Engineering major

  1. Apr 7, 2013 #1
    Does anybody know anything about ATMAE accredited engineering programs? I'm currently studying Applied Electronics Engineering, and I know it's not traditional engineering nor is it engineering at the least.. it's kind of a joke; just a two year engineering technology degree with management classes added on.

    What I need to know is, will this degree be marketable?? Can I find a job easily with it?? I haven't spoke to anybody that's graduated with this degree, but I've heard that none of them can find a job. I really need to know if this is true or not.

    Please help.

    I know a guy with a degree like that who works at Telligent.

    Obviously this would depend on location. It's easier for an electrical engeering technologist to get a job than an electrical engineer at my location; however, you are limited with what you can do with a two year tech degree.
