Hello All,
I currently hold an AAS degree in Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) and am working towards a BS in EET with an option to take the remaining classes needed to get a post bacc degree in EE. Both programs are ABET accredited, and the school I attend is part of the state university system. It will take me about 3 more years to get the EE degree. The program is set up for working proffessionals (hence the round about way of getting the EE) so classes are at night allowing me to work during the day to support my family, however my current job has absolutely nothing to do with electronics. So now that i have explained my background my question is:

Is it worth my time to take a Manufacturing Technician job at Intel? Will having that experience help me when I graduate and start to look for jobs as an EE?

Because I need to work during the day to support my family I may not be able to find an internship that meets my needs so I am wondering if this is an opportunity I should jump on.

Thanks for any advice!

I say go for it, I just did. It will give you a great name to put on your resume. The pay is pretty decent, and Intel has tuition reimbursement. Plus you get to play with all the toys you've learned about in school in an industry situation.
