Joseph’s Answer

What exactly is a "small time" engineer? Maybe you mean engineering in a small local company, not normally noticed on the national/global scale? Maybe you mean part-time hours? Maybe something else?

Either way, the path into most engineering jobs, small or large, is broadly the same - focussing on STEM subjects at school, and going on to college/university to study a science or engineering degree. The choice of degree program and courses - and therefore which colleges are best -depends on the type of engineering you want to do. Maybe you've got some ideas of whether you're more electrically minded, mechanical, chemical, or something else already, or maybe you're not sure yet. If you're not sure, don't worry; there's plain "engineering" courses where you'll cover a bit of all the main areas; and then you can choose later based on how your studies go.

The other main route, particularly if you're more practically hands-on and less academically minded, is to take up an apprenticeship in an engineering focused company, and do on the job training.
