Yes, of course, I am heavily prejudiced against micro degrees. Why would I not be? That’s basically telling low income people that they could embark on an engineering career within a fraction of the time and employers that they could hire an engineer for a fraction of the cost. Obviously you can’t make that proposal with a straight face when both parties are present in the same room and those who buy the pitch deserve each other anyway, but comeon!

Would anybody take a “doctor” serious who says that he used to deliver pizzas and didn’t attend med school because 4 years of studying is way to long, but he really wanted the higher income, so he signed up for a bootcamp where they trained him to handle scalpels in a matter of weeks? That’s the level of ridiculous, everyone involved in bootcamps sounds.
