    Pros: You can be an engineer without having to go to school again later in your career.

    Cons: You could do an apprenticeship instead where you'd get paid (although you wouldn't have the same career as a degree qualified engineer), and in a degree you'd get taught more academic engineering rather than practical engineering.

    If you ever want to get above 40k, you want to become a Chartered Engineering. In order to be a CEng you have to pass a bunch of requirements, among them educational. Doing an MEng or even a BEng with full, or partially satisfy those requirments, respectively. Becoming a proper engineering without a degree is really really hard without going to uni.
