This one hits home for me, as an "uneducated" engineer. My background is in the social sciences, with an Honours Degree in Psychology. I do find however that the skills I learned at the post-secondary level to be invaluable tools that I rely upon everyday. Things like: critical thinking, problem solving, researching, and argument formulation. Without my degree I'm not sure I'd be as good at my job, despite it's content having no relation whatsoever to my job function.
