I am in the middle of a career change (having an old BS in general engineering technology) and have been going to CU Boulder for computer science ... but I am not "feeling it", can't imagine myself sitting on a chair for the rest of my life pushing buttons and screen photons (I have also spent about 12 years of my life with technical drafting) so, to hell with that I say :-) .

What are your recommendations on trade schools in the area?
I am thinking either on refresher courses for Mechanical Eng Tech, or 2 year programs in Wind Turbine tech, or Electromechanical/Robotics tech, or anything that involves programmable automation.

(Reading about Redstone and Ecotech and I am getting some iffy vibes about those private schools)
