    Education: Undergraduate Degree required, Graduate degree preferred, or

    equivalent years of industry experience considered.

    That's interesting: how many years of industry experience make up a
    undergraduate or graduate degree?

    Well, I *Do* know that, looking at it the other way, a graduate degree is
    equivalent to Zero years experience. We have a newly hired MSEE who is
    actively employed burning up my circuits. Wouldn't know an electron if it
    jumped up and bit her on the ass.

    Believe it or not, some people acquire knowledge by reading, working
    with the technology, and solving real-world problems. Sort of like
    they do in school, only with a more practical focus. Reality TV for
    education, only better.

  5. Sure, it happens, but it's pretty rare, IMHO, for people to acquire
    deep theoretical knowledge that way. Perhaps Andor's point is that the
    two are virtually orthogonal requirements.

  6. the US government seem to think it is 10 years.

  7. It depends on if one has 10 years of real experience or only 1 year of
    experience 10 times.

    Delete the "years of" and it makes more sense. Then, an interviewer might
    ask how did you get that equivalent experience? And, secondarily, how many
    years did it take *you* to get that "equivalence".

    I got my B.E.E. when the director of the lab I worked in said, "You're
    doing an engineer's work, you ought to get paid like on. Go get a
    degree." Two years later, one of the job offers I got was less than what
    I had been making when he pushed me out, but the one I took ended me up
    as an MTS at RCA Labs. I never got another degree, but I had a couple of
    Ph.D.s who worked as my assistant at one time or another. The part I'm
    proud of is two of my technicians becoming full-fledged MTSs.

  9. Actually, in the video business, it is more common than not, as it was essential for many years, simply because there were no competent engineering programs with a video orientation. There are still very few.
