Default another Stupid question

Who here has a degree in Mechanical Engineering or close to it?

How did you go about getting it? Did you go to a community college and get your associates in science and then transfer to a university and get a bachelors? Or?

Also would you have done anything different or have any tips?

What are you doing Job wise now?

Ive been out of school for awhile and trying to figure out how I want to get back in! Sorry I know these threads are getting annoying.

I'm going for Chemical Engineering and went the MCC route so I could pay cash and have no student debt up to this point and then transferring to Oakland. After a few more classes I'll have an Associate of Baccalaureate studies in Chemistry and an Associate of Baccalaureate studies in Chemical Engineering

BSME from Michigan Tech here. I went there the whole time but know plenty of others who've gotten their gen-eds out of the way at community college then transferred to any number of more reputable engineering schools. Just know where you want to go and for what major ahead of time so you don't end up taking a bunch of classes that won't transfer.

I'm currently a manufacturing engineer for an aftermarket and OEM truck accessory company. Some days are good, some days I get reminded that this is why I get paid well. I was a product engineer then transferred into the manufacturing end a couple years ago. There are a million different things you could do for an engineering degree, but no matter what it'll take lots of hard work, pain in the ass classes, and commitment to get there. I don't know you personally, just what I've seen on this forum, but based on that I'd say it isn't for you. Not trying to be a dick, it just isn't for everyone.

Bsme from Kettering.

Went straight in.

Quality of degree plays a major part, along with willingness to learn. If you're serious, please take some time to look at michigan tech or Kettering's curriculum over one of the big state schools.

Do you like Math? Are you good at? Do you like hanging around with people who lack social skills?

For your case I'd recommend a community college to get as much done as you can transfer to a 4 year school. This will save you money and show if you are even capable of learning. And I'm sure your act and sat scores were quite low if you even took them.

and what is your highest level of education and the last math class you successfully completed

Working on a BSME from Kettering. Knowing what I know now, I would come in as a transfer student. Kettering accepts 72 credits from transfer students but only 8 credits from other schools while you are enrolled. Make sure that if you do go to a different school than you intend to get a degree from make sure that they accept your credits. Kettering sucks because we only really have 10 weeks to learn what most schools cover in 16. Make sure that you keep notes from previous classes if not the text books as well.

Now that the hippo with ADHD is gone, I appreciate the advice everyone. I've been thinking about a career change and I never went to college out of highschool. I tried but didn't have much help and eventually gave up. Probably one of my biggest regrets. I've been reading all day. I think the plan is associates in science and then transfer to Oakland university and go for the bachelor's in mechanical engineering technology. That's the plan at least. Obviously money, time, and taking care of my family will play a big part.

All this food talk is making me hungry.

Oakland isn't a bad school. I once considered going there. I can't say much for any engineering program they may offer though, as I don't have any experience with that.
