I'm taking classes to become one right now. I guess that doesn't help you out much though.

Now I'm curious, what does a studio engineer actually do?
Is it a 4 year college career, or a tech school career?

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

Well it could be a little of both, there are four year degrees, and some tech schools will give you a crash course in a few months to a few years. I know Full Sail has an accelerated program that get's you industry-ready in a year. What a sound engineer does (and I'm no expert mind you, that's why I want to got to school for this, but if a REAL engineer could help everyone out and fill out the questions above hint hint...) is records a band takes all the parts, adjusts all the EQ and levels and faders and all that, does their magic, and makes Britney Spears a millionaire. That's like it in a tenth of a nutshell.

Cool, I wanna do something with music, and if I'm doing it in a four year college my parents won't freak out about it.
Haha

Im currently going to USC to become an audio engineer. Im majoring in Music Industry which is a four year degree.

I work at an auditorium where im doing audio stuff. I dont know if that counts.

They're not talking about hardcore punk, they're talking about "hardcore." It has little in common with its roots in the '80s.

Full Sail isn't very good. Not only do they cost a lot, but they won't help you get into the industry. The best way to go is a 4 year college program. Trust me it is a whole lot better to do it this way, because people are more willing to hire someone from a trusted college and there is a lot of networking within a college.

Basically, don't waste your time with tech schools.

Edit-X: Even though I'm still going to school for this, I'll answer to the best of my abilities.

How long is your typical workday? Depends on how I feel, and what I negotiate with band I am recording. Generally about 8 though.
How many days do you work? It would depend on how busy I am, or the negotiated term with the band.
Do you have a lot of free time? I try to leave some free time for me and my band to practice/get drunk.
Does work stress you out? Sometimes, once again, it usually varies from band to band.
How much do you make a year? Varies.
Do you have any benefits? I personally don't
What kind of education would you recommend? 4 year college
How long have you been working? About 2 years now....
What is your favorite part about the job? Seeing it all come together in one beautifully mastered mix
Is their Advancement Opportunity? Depends, there is a lot to be said about who you know.... That's more how you advance (if you want to call it that)

That's another reason I wanted a four year college.

Since we got a little sidetracked here I might as well just go with it. That's a massive list of schools.

EDIT: In the USA and Canada mostly
