I used to hear Frankie Armstrong sing that on her annual trip to Berkeley -- always brought down the house. She explained that in Britain, an "engineer" can be someone who works using an engine or machine -- i.e., a turret lathe. In the U.S., we call them machinists. A college degree is not needed, but you do need technical training.
