I just hate people comng from 2 yesr tech schools, learn about computers, and call themselves engineers.  It's more frequent than apparently you think. 

what i hated the most were people with AA degrees who then got cisco or microsoft certified and called themselves engineers.  no, you're just a temp until the problem is fixed, beeyatch.

a lot of people study political science.  but i think i read somewhere that just as many lawyers recommend studying business before law school than liberal arts.

do you have a pic?

I had two choices when I returned to school, major in accouning which is a field I worked in for 10 years, or major in Economics, a field that is not as difficult (at least I thought)
and law schools would prefer an Econ major over and accounting major.  I think I got some bad advice. I would have received all A's in accounting, and Economics threw me a little so I only really had about a 3.3 GPA after returning, and ended up with a 2.67 (LSADS is in the process right now of whittling away at my GPA)   :(

Whoever gave you that advice was dead wrong.  All my friends with accounting degrees are getting ready to be masters of tax law.  If you have the background, perhaps you will be able to go for the LLM in taxation at UF.

Exactly, I don't see how they can help build bridges, or provide support to a nuclear energy plant.  Somebody should have Ginatio chime in, I bet he is offended, unless I am totally wrong about his degree.  He does talk a lot about tech stuff though.  Ginatio?
What do you think about this generic trend of "engineers"?

P.S.  Most shift keys show the word "shift"  right on the key, some even have arrows.  ;D

yeah swifty, econ is hard as *&^%.  intermediate micro -- that sucked.

that is why law schools say that they take the undergraduate major into consideration (my ass).  i am sure that they do, slightly.  but you are right, in hindsight -- at least for the application -- the accounting probably would have been better.

at my school, everyone at the business school (undergraduate) had a joke of a time in comparison to us in the liberal arts department, let alone the engineering school.

I feel the need to form a coherent and well punctuated sentence.  Anyway, Swifty, you are correct when you say that "they" cannot help build bridges or even assist me in designing a plant to produce chemicals, etc.  Now, as for the generic trend of engineers, an individual that has taken a significant amount of engineering or science classes but has not actually obtained a degree in engineering or science may still sit for the patent bar.  However, the MIS/DIS/LIS curricula do not require enough science courses such that a graduate can sit for the patent bar.

Loved macro, hated micro.  The only thing I learned in micro was that economists will run a business to the ground.  And if you are in business, don't listen to them.

I swear to this day, I still cannot figure out what has the greater affect, the income or the substition, when drawing indifference curves.  Quite frankly, I really don't care.

They can call themselves engineers all they want, I really don't care either way. But the fact remains that, on their resume, they do not have a B.S. in Electrical, Chemical, Civil, Mechanical, or other Engineering, and they sure as hell aren't going to get paid as much as bona fide engineering majors.

another point: Most schools now have a computer engineering degree that is separate from a CS/MIS degree. At my school, these guys took all the first two years of general engineering classes that the rest of us engineering majors had to take, and then took classes in computer hardware, architecture, and design the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. There's a difference between: people that have Microsoft certification and can troubleshoot Windows; people that have CS degrees and work at Microsoft as code monkeys; and people that have CE degrees and work at Microsoft designing the software from an engineering/architectural perspective.

The only thing I do hate is when I tell people that I'm an electrical engineering major, and they think I mean that I'm an electrician. I studied f-ing quantum mechanics and high frequency communications technology, not how to wire a house...
