    If it was just a rumor and they are staying, I would imagine that you would go through ford car only kinda training like wyotech and UTI offer and then from there inside the ford program work up to being in SVT. But thats just a guess.

    Yea, I talked to some employees at the Carlisle show last year, they said you have to have an engineering degree and do the whole application thing, even just to test drive the cars for them.

    All set for the application process and having to claw the eyes out of the hundred other applicants fresh out of school, but you never know, you might just get lucky.

    Well, depends on your school, Im going to UMR, which is a really good engineering school, as in about 95% of the students here are engineering majors. Before you start in, I really suggest you talk to some other engineers, and do some research, because it is not always what everyone thinks of engineering. Lots of problem solving, lots of MATH and related classes. But if your up to it, i say go for it. I mean, it sux right now, but I just keep telling myself thta this will all be worth it when Im finished.

    Yes it is for those who are scholastically inclined, aka the smart kids in high school.
