This board is populated with a bunch of engineering nerds. Holy carp, you guys are everywhere.

Freak needs to make an engineer sub forum so yall can get your geek on.

BTW, i have an engineer daughter, son in law, and a chem E major enrolled at TTU. Hook a dad up with the 411 on jobs, yall.

Nope.

B.S. in History from TN Tech, 2009. But like Sociology, it's a worthless degree. Went back for a post-grad program and got a teaching license. Teaching Career Management in a prison now.

There's no way I could have actually gone to school at UT. Way too big, would have flunked out early.

Never attended UT, though it has always been my favorite school. Paradox, of sorts.

Bachelor degree from West Point (Engineering), masters from Indiana University (West European Studies) and US Army War College (Strategic Studies).
Thank you for your service, sir. And for being a Tennessee Vol. We've talked back and forth on the board a few times. Glad to know a little more about you.... I finished UT Knoxville up to my Jr. English exams, Engineering... all night school. Had to work through... my Lord had a different plan - graduated from Thomas Road Baptist Bible Institute (now Liberty University). Been preaching for 45 years, but I can still read a slide rule... go figure.

BTW, 2nd. Lt. 30th Armored Division. Got the tee shirt, wore it out. Tennessee Military Academy alum.

Would be interesting to see how many people do something related to their major. Mine kind of led me to where I am today but it’s completely unrelated
Most people don't use their actual degree for their entire career. I did electronics design work for a decade before moving to consulting and sales of electronics design software. Now I am sales management for the same type of software. Ironically I can explain what I do now easier than what I used to do!

Yes, BS Political Science degree in early 2000's. Came back to work for UT a few years later and got a (basically) free BS in Accounting and an MBA from UT-Martin. Itching to start a free PhD but that is a hefty time commitment while working full-time.
