I've been trying a career change to Engineering Drafter/Technician and having trouble getting a foot in the door. I have the skill set just not on paper, so looking at an Associates degree. There are two online degrees available, Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Sort of wondering what is the basic differences between them and trying to make a decision which one I should take.

 

a couple of the places in the area that have been hiring and that I'm interested in are Boeing and a tunnel boring machine company

 

here's links to the credit descriptions
