Resolved Question: Why did Dean Kamen,
And does that prove that overstudying e.g. Masters and PhD's is pointless if you want to achieve something useful. I'm not going to add a Bachelor's to this list because I think a Bachelor's is important, especially because there's no chance in hell of an engineering job without one.
P.S. by "useful" I mean something that will actually have some effect on the world. E.g. an engineer with a Masters/PhD who is currently working to help increase disposable paper cup production rates at a manufacturing plant is not what I personally consider useful in the long run, but that's my view :) thanks for all the answers so far
What I mean by "useful" is doing something worthy to help mankind. E.g. I think a guy who did a degree/masters/phd in engineering using that knowledge to design the most high tech HD tv with blu ray dvd, + other entertainment components made of the cheapest, yet not so easily recyclable material is doing something completely pointless with his vast knowledge. Whereas the case of the answerer who designs bridges that don't fail, that IS definitely useful to mankind in a big way. We don't want another Tacoma Narrows happening, so in that way the knowledge is being used to a useful purpose. I hope that clarified what I think is "useful".
