“Engineering has become an `it’ degree, recent grads are discovering, in both traditional tech professions and across the economy.”

There are many good reasons why it makes a lot of sense to go back to college to earn a degree in engineering. Maybe you have gained skills on the job in a field like cloud computing systems, but you need a degree before you can move up in your company or get hired for a higher paying job at another firm. Or perhaps a new field like medical informatics is expanding quickly and the right degree would let you get in on the ground floor of a great growth opportunity.
Breaking Through to Success
Yet for many working adults, going back to college to earn engineering degrees can seem difficult, for reasons like these . . .
- Many engineering schools offer four-year, intensive programs that seem best suited to young students who have just graduated from high school.
- You’re already working at a demanding job and can’t find the time to return to college to complete an engineering degree.
- A few years ago, your employer was happy to pay for your continuing education, but all that has changed in the current economic slump.
If you’re facing obstacles like those, online courses can offer you a great way to jump-start your engineering studies. Here’s a three-part plan. . .
- First, take courses like Precalculus, General Calculus, General Calculus II, General Physics I or General Physics II here at StraighterLine.
- Second, pick the StraighterLine Partner College where you would like to earn your engineering degree. Many of these great colleges and universities will offer engineering degrees in the specialty that you are looking for.
