Pls I need help on this subject matter especially from those who has prior experience on this or have friends or heard of those with similar circumstance.
I have an undergraduate degree in mech engineering but took a job as an process operator/technician. After working as a process operator for 6yrs in a petrochemical plant, I wish to pursue an engineering position but would like to pursue a masters degree for a more specialized degree in facilities engineering.
Will my experience as a process operator be counted as an engineering experience should i decide to transition?
I also 2.87gpa in my undergraduate degree and did not have any internship and got turned down for engineering job postings soon after my undergrad so i decided to settle for a process operator job.
Now that I've worked for couple of years although its non engineering but very close so to speak, will I be able to make that transition now or would getting a masters degree in mech engineer help boost my cv and put me into a better position to succeed. I need someone advice on the best way to transitioning into engineering position for one with my background. Thanks
