I think the university/college system is a rip-off. But, it is true for STEM majors just as much, if not more, than LibArts majors.
we can start with labs...

If cooling row upon row of 20kW servers in small confined space and getting DCIE of 1.2 or lower isn't engineering, than what is it, pray tell? Or what about the ME of air flow over boards or through entire servers, guess that ain't engineering either. I can actually do things, unlike you. You want to hold the pathetic and dreadfully wrong idea that one can only be an engineer if one has a degree in engineering. You are simply wrong. When you get to the real world, where you actually have to ship products, a degree don't mean jack. What matters is can you do what needs to be done. I can. I have moved from area to area over the last quarter of a century because I can. After a few years the area gets boring. (BTW, I suggest you ask mummie and daddy about the real world, perhaps they can try and explain it to you)

And for about the 20th time. I started using ESQ when working for a Harley-Davidson parts dept. As it means "not a member of the landed gentry". (perhaps mummie and daddy can help you learn to use a dictionary too) To add to it, when I started working for Standford, their Tops-20 operating system machines required a login to be at least 6 characters in length. If you look at a standard qwerty keyboard r, d, s, e, & q are all easily typeable with the left hand. Much easier to login in the morning when you can type with one hand and drink coffee or diet-coke with the other. Why lawyers absconded with the ESQ monicker, I don't know and I don't give a damn. Perhaps VaderDave knows, he is a real lawyer.

Only a village idiot fails to comprehend that in the real world you don't need a degree to know and do and invent things. Since you bow at the feet of the founding fathers. Ben Franklin didn't have a degree. Neither did Thomas Jefferson. For that matter, Da Vinci didn't either. You gonna tell me those geezers weren't engineers?

Some people talk, some people do. You are obviously the former, I am the latter. It is that simple. I kept it simple for such a simpleton.
aka I'm not an engineer but I play one on the internet. Whatever helps keep your dick hard bro, keep up the good work!

Not for CS. Virtually ever major systems/technique can be found in the open source community. Including JVMs, JDKs, Hypervisors, message servers. DBs, compiler compilers.

Try learning sculpture from the net. Or acting, or dance. Or lighting design. There are labs that require those as well. Whihc is why when you look at Rapier7's data Fin/Visual arts cost more than bio and medical sciences and math.

I always keep up my good engineering work, it is what I get paid for. And I know where I am on the computer engineer salary list. (just given a quick look at http://computerengineeringsalarydata.com/) I look at the max in my rear view mirror.

My W2 don't lie.

So keep thinking I'm not, if it makes you feel better. Or maybe mummie can pat you on your head while you cry and "make it all better".

Job poseur lol, get bent.

I will agree that you cannot learn acting, sculpting, etc without being there and doing it. You are absolutely right there.
