That's interesting: how many years of industry experience make up a
undergraduate or graduate degree?

Believe it or not, some people acquire knowledge by reading, working
with the technology, and solving real-world problems.  Sort of like
they do in school, only with a more practical focus.  Reality TV for
education, only better.

Sure, it happens, but it's pretty rare, IMHO, for people to acquire
deep theoretical knowledge that way. Perhaps Andor's point is that the
two are virtually orthogonal requirements.

I got my B.E.E. when the director of the lab I worked in said, "You're
doing an engineer's work, you ought to get paid like on. Go get a
degree." Two years later, one of the job offers I got was less than what
I had been making when he pushed me out, but the one I took ended me up
as an MTS at RCA Labs. I never got another degree, but I had a couple of
Ph.D.s who worked as my assistant at one time or another. The part I'm
proud of is two of my technicians becoming full-fledged MTSs.

Actually, in the video business, it is more common than not, as it was essential
for many years, simply because there were no competent engineering programs with
a video orientation. There are still very few.

It depends on if one has 10 years of real experience or only 1 year of
experience 10 times.

Delete the "years of" and it makes more sense.  Then, an interviewer might
ask how did you get that equivalent experience?  And, secondarily, how many
years did it take *you* to get that "equivalence".
