Hi PF, My questions involve: time constraints majors that work with those constraints jobs that go with my skill sets Background Information: My son's mother recently moved and requested, through the Attorney General, I start paying child support. I'm a full time student at community college working on a chemistry associates degree (it satisfies prerequisites for a biomedical engineering degree). The more I think of the highly competitive nature of biomedical, the less it feels attainable while spending time with my son. I'm looking at transferring into a less competitive electrical engineering (EE) program instead. The issue I'm running into is time constraints. Courts usually make child support calculations based on 40 hours per week @ minimum wage if the person doesn't make that much money, then there is daycare payments as well. This takes a significant amount of time out of my week that I would have spent studying or being with my son. My work history involves being a medical laboratory technician for the Air Force, a hourly chemistry assistance for the community college I go to and a history/chemistry tutor. I enjoy playing with equipment (trouble shooting/maintaining) and working with people. Question 1) Is it possible to complete an EE degree while working 40 hours a week? This is assuming that I can take classes around my work schedule. Question 2) If it isn't possible, what kind of other degrees are out there that work with full time workers in a university setting? Question 3) What kind of jobs are there out there that can utilize my prior work experiences and enjoyments? I tried googling information and looking around on indeed but I don't really have the keywords to find what I'm looking for. I live in Austin, Tx. We have lots of tech jobs and biotech jobs. Thanks for reading this and helping me think.
