Bucky - if you’re asking about the MS program at SUNY, you are absolutely not to old - in fact, you’re probably the average age. Well, I have to clarify that - the average age for the MS only students - mostly international people that are working full time jobs. You will be almost twice as old as the students in the license program, but simply because you are in the same classes as the new freshman that come in. I’d have to say the average age of the grad-license kids is between 26-30, but there have been some at 50, so you’ll be alright.
As for the engineering, you’d be among the older - although there are a lot of Navy/Marine Corp guys that are doing the STA-21 program that are older and definitely dedicated to their degrees in the engineering program. But, if you want the license quickly, the MS program is the way to do it - 2 1/2 years from start to finish.
