Equivalent to BS degree in chemical engineering.  Nearly 30 years of experience in application research (mainly on binders - hence familiarity with many technologies) plus a bit of experience with computers.

MSci Physics (4-year version of BSc)
PhD Condensed Matter Physics (X-ray diffraction, instrumentation, (magnetic) materials research)

Self/father-taught in electronics, computer programming, digital signal processing
Interested/dabbled in radio systems and technology (but not a licensed radio-amateur)

Six years experience working in commercial Displays-research (electronic-engineering plus display physics, optical measurement, visual perception effects, etc).

A hands-on kind of geek, who tends to do things because they're "interesting" or a "challenge" more than anything else...  ;)

Didn't have the option to go to university - which is probably a good thing knowing my disposition... this way I never got fed up with anything and now am still interested in everything.

I'm forever catching up on as many fronts as possible... ;D and my daughter keeps me on my toes too

Engineering background, Fabricator welder, mechanical engineer, inventor, medical researcher. Always been a scientist and always will be. Born In the Blackcountry and proud of it, though now a refugee in Paignton living by the seaside :) Lateral thinker by nature who loves to explore the bigger picture by standing back and re-evaluating the whole subject from the established facts, rather than accepting someone else's interpretations of the facts as fact! Comprehensive education though they failed miserably to stop me thinking.
