How should I pursue an engineering degree?

Start circulating your resume. Also, perhaps you could do some consulting or contract work outside of your existing job, so that you can build up experience in the engineering/technical arena. You might also look into positions with companies that create solutions for the education, training and human performance markets. One of my friends was a school teacher. She used this experience to move into training and technical writing for the systems engineering wing of a company that made software for her country’s navy. Then she moved into training and technical writing for general engineering firms. She wasn’t an engineer — and I don’t mean to say her work is the same thing. However, she just had an English degree and was eventually able to convince companies to let her work with some fairly technical stuff. So, given your degrees, you would have a good shot at getting into actual technical positions. Many software engineers and product managers have the same degrees that you do.
