Dear Huddie: Is It Too Late to Become an Engineer?

March 28, 2014

Back for installment thirty of Dear Huddie – its cold from Canada to Georgia, damn Global Warming!

Funny from the Internet… Do not over think it!!!

Dear Huddie is it too late to become an engineer


Dear Huddie – I am reaching out to you because I have a million dollars in a bank account that I am willing to share with you. The issue is I need $5,000 American Dollars to travel back to my home country and withdraw the money, so can you please send me $5,000 American dollars and in return I will share my million American dollars?

Sure, the check is on the way! Who else receives these emails? I can’t wait to cash in!

Dear Huddie – I am currently in a non-technical major, entering my junior year. Is it too late to become an engineer?

Heck no – there are still certified engineers trying to become engineers! The best thing you could do is follow the path below:

  • Take some of the online tests available – I found this quiz below in a 30 second Internet search.
  • Once you determine the type on engineering discipline you would like to enter, go talk to the department head and determine the requirements.
  • Pre-heat oven to 350F (Oops, sorry. Wrong list!)
  • Spend time with the department head, but also ask if there are any current students you could chat with – make sure you have a good understanding of what it takes to become an engineer. Keep in mind you may have another 3+ years still left even though you are a junior, and switching disciplines from a non-technical to technical degree will mean more work

Thank you again for listening, that’s it for now. Come back for the next installment in two weeks – and don’t forget to send your Dear Huddie questions to
