Studying Engineering Courses Online

327463339_e7d2a214dd_m I hate the thought of going back to school. I don’t want to be the guy that everyone points at, whispering, “I wonder how old he is?”

If I were going to do any further education, chances are it would be online, there are a number of reasons for this, firstly, flexibility of program with work, and secondly I live in the middle of the mountains in BC, Canada, withe the nearest real university with Engineering courses a minimum of 7 hours drive away in Vancouver, or about the same to Calgary.


The EarnMyDegree.com site is a great starting point for people interested in studying online, and they do have a section for courses related to Engineering…

Our online Engineering Bachelor’s, Master’s and MBA degree programs are ideal for working adults who need maximum scheduling flexibility and want to complete their degrees in less time than is usually required for on-campus programs. The rich multimedia and interactive features of these online courses are especially effective for teaching engineering topics.

If you want to start or accelerate your career in engineering, explore the online programs below and request more information from our accredited colleges and universities today.

Online Engineering Degree Programs | EarnMyDegree.com

The pickings are pretty slim at the moment, with five courses listed at different levels, certificate, associate degree, two bachelors degrees and a masters program. Now to make it entirely clear, at the date of this review, none of these courses by itself would allow you to practice or progress to become an Engineer, but are in related fields such as Construction Management, Engineering Management (Masters) and CAD/Drafting.

The service seems pretty straight forward, offering you a basic level of information pertaining to the course and leading to an online form to allow an information pack to be sent out.

They must have some sort of afilliate deal with the institutions, which is pretty smart, considering the institution no longer is restricted to a city in it’s marketing…

After working with more than a dozen online education providers, we recognized the need for a convenient, one-stop resource that could bring new students and educators together. Since its launch in May 2003, EarnMyDegree.com has successfully connected more than 3 million students to the adult online education programs of their choice.

With EarnMyDegree, you can easily discover a host of online and distance learning programs in your prospective field of study—from undergraduate to advanced degrees to professional certificates. Thanks to multiple levels of information about each school and its offered programs, you’re able to get an accurate sense of which schools and programs are worth exploring and learning more about.

About Us – EarnMyDegree.com


This service would be exceptional if more institutions were providing online courses, and teaming up with an organization like EarnMyDegree.com. There are lots of courses I’d consider if only they were offered online.

Hmmm, at least then no one would be questioning my age on campus.
