I am a 34 year old police officer in Houston, Texas (11 years) and I
want to work towards becoming an engineer. (I am interested in civil,
chemical and mechanical engineering) I have at least 3 1/2 years left
of school (school is tough when you work full time) until I graduate.
My question is: assuming I am technically proficient, would I have a
hard time trying to break into any engineering field at 38 years old?
If your answer is no, here's another scenario: what if I finish
school at 44 (retire from police department) with both a bachelor's
and master's degrees? It's not like I've been delivering pizzas and
working at a coffee shop for the past 11 years, but on the other hand,
I have done nothing related to engineering outside of school. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.
