Associate of Science in Engineering vs Associate in Applied Science (Electronics Engineering Technology)?
I got my bachelor in Anthropology couple of years ago. I landed a job with a third party product testing laboratory. My main job is to investigate product failure field reports. The pay is really good for someone with a non-engineering degree but my manager suggested that I look into a 2 years technical program such as engineering or electrical in order to get a field engineer title and raise my salary. Which is better. a Associate of Science in Engineering vs associate in Applied Science (Electronics Engineering Technology)? There are 2 nearby community colleges by me. One offers Associate of Science in Engineering and another one offers Associate in Applied Science (Electronics Engineering Technology). I'm not looking into getting a BS in engineering because I'm planning on attending grads school for business management later. But in order to advance within this company, a MBM means nothing if you lack technical background. I'm not sure what's the different tween the two and which is more suitable for field engineer.
