However that tech can grow in management. There is no paths open to move a
tech into engineering. With out the diploma, you are not an engineer. At
least this is what I heard for 20+ years as a tech. My technical experience
let me move into management where they needed someone that could understand
what the engineers were talking about. Soon I was defending the budgets that
paid the engineers.

EEs are wonderful, have lots of fun playing with all the shiny equipment and
make the world go round (Sony play station 2 just launched). But management
is necessary also. So get the degree in whatever you want and figure out how
to live the life you want.
