Engineering Associate's Degrees
Have you always enjoyed learning how things work by taking them apart and putting them back together again? If you’ve always excelled at math and science subjects, you might want to think about preparing for a career in engineering by pursuing your associate’s degree in this field. Those who earn engineering associate’s degrees are able to advance their knowledge in one of several specialty fields and areas of skilled trade and craftsmanship. If you are the type of person that prefers to study at your own pace, you should know that many schools, like the Cleveland Institute of Electronics and Penn Foster College currently offer distance learning programs in this area.
Those that are able to achieve this level of education will open up a number of job opportunities that would otherwise not be available. When considering people for entry level positions, which are highly competitive in this field, employers often make their decision based on whether or not the applicant has earned a formal degree. You can research additional educational requirements for this type of program at our engineering career center page.
Many people are skeptical of whether they will have the resources and patience to enroll in a traditional four year program, which is why a lower level degree is a great place to start. In only two years or less you may be earning up to forty percent more that other people that have no formal training.
