Thats not true, that is infact a flat out lie.
Ill give you an example, my friend work for a company that manufactures and designs military grade weapons, cameras and other technologies, thats far from trivial, he didnt go to uni.
They also deal with prototypes, thats not trivial, so you should actually learn something before you type.
I also have another friends who helps design cars and ways to make them more fuel efficient, he works especially on the aerodynamics side, thats not trivial at all, he didnt go to uni, he did a level 2 at college then got an apprenticeship.
My father, hes 59, hes worked on everything from just wiring up building to maintaining aircraft carriers and other military vessels when it comes to their electrics and also installing other systems on them and testing those systems, thats not trivial, he never went to uni.
