In summary, Konstantinos, a 15-year-old Greek, is seeking advice on how to become a self-taught engineer. However, it is mentioned that in Greece, the title of "Engineer" can only be obtained through completing an undergraduate engineering degree at a polytechnic university or a technological educational institute. It is recommended to start with a strong foundation in calculus and physics, and to attend college instead of pursuing a self-taught route. Additionally, there are two types of engineering degrees in Greece - Diplomate Engineer and Technologist Engineer.

Start with a solid background in calculus and physics. You need the calculus to properly understand the physics, and you need the physics to understand the engineering courses.

And you will need to go to college instead of being self-taught.

Looks like gaining the titile of an engineer is not possible from being self-taught in Greece?
In Greece, the title of "Engineer" is awarded by higher education institutions. There are two types of engineer. The title "Diplomate Engineer" (Diplomate in Greek: Διπλωματούχος; Kάτοχος ενός Διπλώματος/Δίπλωμα/Diploma; Diploma holder) is awarded after completion of a five-year undergraduate engineering degree (diploma) programme at a polytechnic university. These degrees are 300 ECTS credits, leading to a qualification at ISCED level 7, equivalent to an integrated master's degree.

The title of "Technologist Engineer", is awarded after completion of a four-year (three and a half years from 1983 to 1995) undergraduate engineering degree programme at a technological educational institute (TEI). These are 240 (previously 210, 1983–1995) ECTS credits leading to an award at ISCED level 6, equivalent to a bachelor's degree. TEIs existed from 1983 to 2019; they were reformed between 2013 and 2019 and their departments incorporated into existing higher education institutions.
