>>7778653 They aren't dreaming about being engineers, they're dreaming about money and prestige or else they would need to ask retarded question especially "I'm a 25 year old high-school dropout who doesn't understand how to multiply, I want to be an ME and work for NASA xD" crowd.
And yes IQ is very important. Academia is hell for unintelligent grinders and not worth the effort they have put it when there are easier ways to make money.
If you actually cared about engineering all they'd need is the textbook recs we give them from the wiki. But then of course they discover they actually hate engineering and have zero passion for it.
Why are you so arrogant to think that it can't be done? The NASA stuff is just reduction to ad absurdum.
I spent 23-25 learning maths essentially from the beginning to calculus. Accumulated enough credits and got in a top 15 eng school in the UK. I'm not the only one over 25 in my class. When you get a job, you'll be working with plenty of old people from many backgrounds.
And I'm not grinding, doing rather well actually, if I may say so myself.
