And online classes are growing exponentially in prevalence, makes it much easier to gain credits in one’s spare time.
The unfair thing is that Mark wants a wife and Megan says yes. Now he has to pay off her debt too.

Nuclear Engineering online
Rin saysNuclear Engineering onlineoh fucking shit...time to move away from nuclear power plants
Applied Biomedical Engineering program
Applied Chemistry/Chemical Engineering
Rin saysApplied Chemistry/Chemical EngineeringHave not seen any chemist with "online education" degree at companies I often go to. I have seen "online education" in geosciences (MS degree) at a few schools incl ours, and it is basically a US degree mill where rich people from Colombia, Brazil etc get degrees to flaunt in their countries. These degrees are given to anyone who can pay $$$ "no learning required"

why would anyone care if it's for rich internationals or locals trying to spruce up their resume?
In reality, who wants to be a chemist when it's easier to actually become a doctor or a lawyer.
It's a Masters, so I'm assuming lots of theory, the core hands on stuff was covered in the Bachelor's of Science.We had people who were HS Educated and a year or two in the Navy running our nuke plants for half a century.
While chemists brought you penicillin, Teflon, and so on.
Yes, because neither Penn State nor Columbia tells you that it's online and not on campus. In fact, you may have met, lots of candidates with online credentials where the registrar's office didn't distinguish between the two.
Heck, in contrast, many Massachusetts police officers retire in 20 years with a pension paying between $70K to $100K/yr for life.
Nope, because even at MS level they will not hire without applicant having published research work, which can not be done online. They also specifically hire from research groups - so someone with online degree with no research publications and no research experience in a group will not be hired. Exxon has a list of research groups they hire from, and so do many pharmaceutical companies.
Then, if they want, take a sabbatical to do research on-campus w/o paying tuition and work on publishing their work. This opens both avenues, one for a career in industrial R&D and a second, in finance or some other monied field like consulting.
Have not seen anyone here doing sabbatical according to this system, and don't know anyone who would take person like that in his lab as they would lack any lab experience. In fact, doing experimental chemistry and chem E MS and PhD is free! anyway, and you are paid some sort of stipend if you work for advisor who has research funds. My MS/PhD students do not pay any tuition, and they get paid something from private grants we have.The online school products all must have gone to the finance field.
did one during & after college, at an away institute and after my 1st paper was published, I moved onto industry as that what was needed if I later wanted to go MD/PhD.
And since you live in the Texas Triangle you probably don't know about any of this. A lot of ppl on the east coast, look to go into management, finance, consulting, etc, instead of staying in core R&D because it's prone to layoffs and offshoring, just like Dow/DuPont/Honeywell did to much of their east coast holdings during the 90s.
Chemistry labs are hands on, like plumber training.
You did not get an online degree, I presume?
Overall tho I do agree with you that to a very large extent going into sciences is not the best career choice these days.
Pharmacists can not get jobs, their salaries stagnate
Just two weekends ago I had to go rent a rooter machine (Home depot has a department for that) and root out the drain for my kitchen sink. Cost me $65 for the rental and insurance, but a plumber would have cost at least double... more on a Sunday which it was. Nasty job... but hands wash and clothes clean. Mike Rowe would have approved.
no plumber will ever earn less than $80K in Massachusetts
In his synopsis, the only fully licensed and experienced MA plumbers earning that, are ones who basically want only a 35-40 hour work week with full benefits. The rest, meaning the ones who pick up an overnight O/T or double-time weekend shift, here & there, easily clear six figures and even he earned $140K/yr for some 4-5 years while he was finishing up his mortgage.
