Hi Guys I really need your help I'm from Egypt BTW not from the states. I've always wanted to be an engineer but I missed up in high school had a family crisis and it affected me and my grades dropped down massively and got expelled for ditching school and lost my only shot of scholarship (The one thing i regret the most) my family doesn't have much we are fairly poor and they can't afford to send me to Collage and i can't work to pay for it because it will take about 7 to 11 years of working to get the entire tuition money (3RD WORLD COUNTRY Which means Engineering school cost around 100 to 125 grand and a guy with a high school degree will make barely 9 to 11 grand a year ) so you get the picture . I wanted to ask if there's any way i could become an engineer without going to college. PS. I've always been great in teaching my self stuff and I've been pretty good in mathematics since i was 5 I never got any thing but the full mark in all my exams before high school i guess . and in high school I've taught my self the entire calculus curriculum in 3 days and did the same with algebra and Trig but i didn't have time to study mechanics or geometry which affected my overall mathematics grade and I've never attended a single class (In Egypt the Last two years of high school have no term exams and there's no grades except your final exam no activities or projects or any thing everything relies on your grades in the final and only exam ) I've been out of high school for 3 years now i tried literature and arts school (free school no fancy tuition ) but i dropped out before the first midterm it was so incredibly boring and i've done it just to please my parents and now it's been two years I've been trying To find any thing else i might like but so far there's nothing even computer programming was no good for me. So please if there's any way or any thing that can be done without going to collage I'm willing to do it. And I'm so sorry for making such a big topic but i really need your help and sorry Again if it wasn't in the right forum.
