except for all the bricklayers, carpenters, plumbers, etc. The map is not the terrain, The plan is not the object. The worst thing I've seen from most engineers is Hubris.

I could take up audio engineering. Music is a passion of mine, and mastering an album takes technical training.

Been a professional computer programmer for over a decade now - well worth it, and worth getting the degree (went with a generic BS in Computer Science, with a bonus in Math from a regular college, and I've been in games ever since).

Yeah got a degree in Electrical Engineering specializing in robotics, so I cross studied in computer science and mechanical engineering. Took and passed the FEE as well, so I'm a "real" engineer (or so they say).

I wouldn't get too hung up on the whole pain and suffering of getting an engineering degree piece, I knew people in some of my courses who were engineering majors, but had no passion for the subject and consequently lost competence in it as well. If you don't enjoy most of the labs you do, you may want to reconsider your major. You don't have to enjoy any of the coursework, that shit can get really hard and dry.
Also, don't bog down on all math, science and engineering courses, take a couple in the arts and humanities - as one of my professors used to say: "Science and technology may have allowed us to go to the moon, but it was the arts that inspired us to go there"

I've been there, long time ago, studied CS at Carnegie Mellon. Definitely worth it at the end, UIUC certainly has a great program, so I can see why it would be "pain and suffering", UIUC certainly has the name recognition to go along with it too, certainly one of the schools to try to recruit from for a lot of companies here in Silicon Valley.

Next year I'll hopefully be at uni doing a degree in Chemical Engineering ;o; It's a great field to get into.

I got Electrical Engineering, but now I program Microsoft .NET in C# all day. Which is what I REALLY studied in college.

Yes, chemical engineering at Rutgers. I feel your pain.
