I got a job at KBR purchasing parts and machinery. No college experience. Can I become an engineer for free?

Fresh out of HS, I got an interview by a little help of an influential executive in the company and got the job the next day. Most of my colleagues are experienced engineers and draftsmen.

Will this experience replace a college degree. Its a major engineering/construction company.
