Hello looking to get into I&C need help
« on: Oct 17, 2015, 09:35 »
Hello.  I am currently a nuclear security officer.  I have been for six years, working for Exelon.  I have a bachelors in Criminal Worthless.  I am ready for a new challenge.  I have looked into an MBA in project management, but after talking with HR and some other higher ups, they recommend I get a degree in a technical field first.  So long worded, I've looked into Bismarck for they do have an I&C degree that I can do online.  The problem with Bismarck is it is very limited enrollment and only start in the fall.  They are recommending renewable energy degree.   One of the higher ups I talked with does not recommend that degree.  So does anyone know of any other online schools does I&C degrees.  My Exelon will set me up with Techs to complete the labs at work!

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Does the company offer you tuition reimbursement? Are there no technical schools where you live that you can attend on a part time basis? Bismarck offers a certificate online not a degree. Not sure if a certificate would qualify you for I&C.

What kind of degree are you looking for? I'm sure anyone with I&C experience already knows that, but those of us without it need to know to provide help.

Bismarck does offer an associate under their I and c.  Called applied sciences. 

Exelon does offer tution reimbursement but with my schedule there is no way to do brick and motor classes. 

Would prefer to get an associate since I already have the bs I do not need to take Gen eds.    Just the core classes.

The degree from Bismarck is not online. You have to go up there for four weeks of labs.
Electronics should also qualify you for I&C. Regardless you'll need to do labs.

Duke offers co-op programs where you can attend a local university/community college for a electronics engineering degree, work for Duke (limited hours and pay) and Duke will pay for your school.  You'll work with I&C techs in the field daily and could potentially get hired.

Wish I would've known that before I made my move a few years back.
