I have a business degree but want to have engineering and physics knowledge. I sure don't want to pay for another degree, but I would like to have something I could put on a resume. Is there an equivalent associates program to consider, or maybe should I look into online programs?

Why did you get a business degree? Business is something that can be self taught/read by a lot of people.
>>
There are plenty of associates programs in engineering.

You do know that a requirement for some jobs is to have a degree right?

Personally I didn't finish college and I make as much as most people that did, but I'm also not a complete moron who doesn't understand what a degree can do for someone.

I've taught myself mechanical engineering but it would be pretty hard for me to get a job as one.

This is a good question. Maybe a mooc then take a test?

It is, if it was purely for academic reasons I could point out hundreds of things but what OP is looking for is an outside body validating him.

Only 3 things really come to mind:
1. Get a technical job that deals a lot with that type of knowledge. You may be able to get on using your degree, nevermind it's business. Once you're in it for awhile and earned your dues then put it on your resume.
2. There are tons of certifying bodies for various fields. Find one that you wouldn't mind boasting about and then put that on your resume after you passed their tests. If you're even eligible that is. Mooc's don't have nearly the recognition of some things out there.
3. CC is a last resort IMO. If you already have a 4 year degree, unless you're looking for specific knowledge, in theory your 4 year already includes anything that a 2 year AA/AS degree would give you in general terms.

My opinion is that since OP already has the paper he should just refresh whatever he's feeling uncomfortable with. i.e. buy a book and study on your own time.

I'm making fairly decent money because of my business degree so I can't really complain. I would just like to be able to take my career in a more technical direction. Literally everything a college teaches you is "something you could teach yourself".

>>17913879
Probably will do this.

>>17913906
I think my best option is probably to take MOOCs for knowledge and then try to take some sort of cert test.

Thanks bros.

Educate yourself thoroughly on these issues, go to reddit science subreddits, you can track down the specialists with their flair if you ever have any questions

I'm not an ameribro so i don't know what qualifies as CV worthy, but perhaps you could straight up lie about having the degrees, or make up achievements that would be related or relatable to having such a degree

It's all in the wording
