I'm a 30 year old software developer, and I think I want to be an electronics engineer.
It makes perfect sense in retrospect, given where my interests lie; but it sort of abruptly crystallized for me this morning. I'm kind of gobsmacked and brimming with questions:
- I have a BS in Management Computer Systems, which basically means I know how to program in high-level languages. Should I be looking at a master's degree or another bachelor's degree? (If the typical entry-level education is a bachelor's, will having a master's and no work experience in the field make it harder to find jobs?)
- How does the whole "going back to school for a master's" thing even work?
- How early would I need to pick a specialization? *Do* I need to pick a specialization?
...and others, but those are the big ones to start with, I suppose.
