RIP Philo

Industrial Engineer is like Software Engineer, right?

You don't need a degree to be either engineer with the above title.

I would expect aeronautical engineers, chemical engineers, etc. to have a degree and many are much more advanced than that.

Software is pretty much the only field where you can get by with fuck all.

Ms. Hewson joined Lockheed Martin more than 30 years ago as an industrial engineer......

Born in Junction City, Kansas, Ms. Hewson earned her Bachelor of Science degree in business administration and her Master of Arts degree in economics from the University of Alabama. She also attended the Columbia Business School and Harvard Business School executive development programs.

Sorry guys but degrees are complete bullshit in technical areas where advancement is being made. The cutting edge is in the field, not in universities where professors are a combination of guys that retired from the field thirty years ago because their knowledge was obsolete, and guys that never worked in the industry because they couldn't get a job because they were incompetent, so they decided to "go back and get my doctorate".

If a field is static and boring then a degree is a sort of long form certification.

The best in any field are always going to be out doing stuff, not fucking around in a classroom studying an incompetent guy's interpretation of what was state of the art forty years ago.

Well, math hasn't changed much in the last $500 years.

Likewise, physics has been pretty steady in the last 13B years.

Which obviously puts the cutting edge, most advanced, at most 50 metric points of IQ if not lower, in the very fluid and degree-less field of frontend Javascript. If a degree will eventually come out of this, Equatorial Guinea no doubt will hold pole position.

I think what he does is a form of art but can't remember the exact name.

Baffle them with bullshit.
