Hi happy to advise.
A bachelor's degree in EE is a 4 year degree. It takes most 4.5 to 5 years to finish becuase of the difficulty of the course work required to get the degree.
If you are talking about an electronic tech school degree, these are typically 2 year degrees. They are not engineering degrees, they are usually called "engineering technician" or something along those lines. The best way to describe this route is that with this sdegree you will end up working FOR someone with the 4 year engineering degree.
As far as the value of going to school 2 more years to get a Master's degree in EE, alot of people do this, especially foriegn students. However the actual value of this is questionable at best in my opinion. Look at it this way, the 4 year Bachelor's degree guy gets out of college and makes 60k/yeare, for 2 years AHEAD of the Master's student. The master's degree engineer graduates and may start out at 70k/year instead of 60k/year because of his degree. However the Bachelor's student is already at that salary level now, has 2 years REAL experience, and has made 120k already over the last 2 years instead of spending 20k on school.
If I were to get a Master's degree ontop of my Electrical Engineering Degree, it would be an MBA(Masters Business Administration) as this could catapolt one into management one day.
That's my 2 cents.
Hope this helps,

P.S. - Keep in mind my perspective is from my experience working and going to school in the US, but should apply internationally.
