    Professional Engineers ... the kind that take 4-5 years of university.

    Yes, they make good money and can support a spouse and kids with just one income.

    My dad was a Chemical Engineer.

    Some do, some don't. Some are quite well off, and others work in fast food. It depends on the individual and his particular circumstances.

  • No. They live under the bridges they built. (Sheesh.)

    Yes, but it depends on where they live. One of my friends sons graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Engineering and he started out making 73,000 a year.

    DO they, or CAN they? Some can, some can't. It depends on a huge variety of variables. You're not a high school graduate, are you.
