I would argue you don't always need a MS in engineering. I know we aren't in Canada or the United Kingdom but you cannot work as an engineer without a degree there. So I really don't think that is exaggerated greatly. Perhaps 10/15/20 years ago, but no company is going to hire a 22 year old without a degree claiming to be an engineer with nothing to prove for that.

Without a PE you will be limited at larger companies, I'd imagine like Disney, for responsibility and liability issues.

Tell him to go to college, get a degree- even if it isn't engineering. I'd imagine job security is important to both you and him and any sort of degree will aid in that.

You said its "almost impossible" to get an engineering job with "just" a BS and PE. That simply isn't the case. *shrugs*

I think without makes more sense there. Heck, I have a bs in engineering and I couldn't get an engineering job.
