Whether a student is pursuing an undergraduate degree in engineering or a graduate degree in engineering, it is possible to complete these degree requirements while working full-time. Current engineers who wish to further their career may pursue a master's degree while continuing to work full-time while those who are not currently employed in the engineering industry may obtain an undergraduate degree without having to quite their current job.
Obtaining a degree in engineering is difficult enough for full-time students but this process becomes even more complicated for those who are employed full-time. However, with the use of effective time management strategies students can learn to balance their educational goals with their current job responsibilities. In some cases this may result in the student making sacrifices in terms of family and social obligations but these are usually considered worthwhile especially if the student is supported by family and friends in his pursuit of an engineering degree.
