Hello, I'm in a situation where I may have to leave my PhD program (math). Let's not go into the details because I'm not sure how anonymous I am on here. I'm just trying to figure out what my options are at the moment. I have an undergrad in applied math and an MS in physics (not ABET). I'm considering doing either an online bachelors or an online master's in electrical or computer engineering (ABET). I'm also considering a non-ABET masters in electrical and computer engineering from my home state. I am not sure how much the ABET accreditation really matters. I've looked at the ABET website school search, and there are several ABET accredited masters degrees; but for example East Carolina University has an ABET accredited MS degree, but MIT in all its glory does not have any of its many master's degrees accredited by ABET. If I do an engineering degree that is not ABET accredited (like a MS in EE or Comp. E.), will that significantly hurt my job prospects? I think at this point I'm just looking to make as much money as possible so I'd like to go for computer engineering. The other drawback of this approach is that these degrees will cost another 30k at the least, just for the sole reason of getting an ABET degree which I am not sure is worth is since I already have a BS and MS. The other option is to just try to get a job with what I've got, and maybe do the degree online while I work. My skills are that I have some experience with Python (MS Thesis, wrote a code that funneled information between two academic fluid dynamics solvers and set up meshes, etc., but it was only about 400 lines), MATLAB (Various numerical methods assignments), Fortran (High performance computing course with MPI), my first ever computing language was Java, and I know a bit about fluids and electrodynamics. I also have a knowledge of plasma physics and a undergrad minor in applied math. I really have no idea what kind of jobs I would qualify for because I feel like a jack of all trades, master of none. Does anyone know what the best option for me to do is? edit: I'm trying to avoid teaching jobs because I don't want to get stuck as a teacher for the rest of my life due to not having any applied experience in the workforce.
