Here's my take.

Going to school for engineering is fine as long as that is your passion. Having the GI Bill pay your way is a big plus. However, it's four or more years of lost or little income. Having a degree and getting a job in your desired field doesn't always happen right away which can lead to more money lost.

But, learning a trade "hands on" will start paying you on day one.

Should you choose HVAC as a trade, you could still use the GI Bill to take night courses to learn theory while you work as a apprentice.

Learning and getting licensed in HVAC can earn you a lot of money. Especially
if you decide to do our own thing later down the road.


I can see it now... (future)
