I do know what you mean though, I have met some terrible "engineers" that should have only been engineering sandwiches. If they had a degree it wouldnt have changed that though.
No, you're wrong. An enginineering degree is not easily achieved. You have to go through engineering curriculum. A high-performing "IT Engineer" that can't do a fourier transform or diff eq is NOT a real engineer.
