I'll most likely be 26 to 27 when I get my undergrad in computer engineering. Hopefully be interning at 25. Would this raise an eye brow because it took me so long? I just went down the wrong path after high school and wanted to switch careers to something more rewarding.

Becoming an engineer at any age is impressive, and no, it shouldn't matter that it took you longer to get there.
I'm 22 and won't graduate until I'm 23 because I took difficult and time-consuming classes when I was away at school and now have to finish them up at home. My major is international development and minor is journalism; I think people cut older students some slack when they hear that they're studying a tough subject such as law, engineering or medicine, or when they're pursuing a unique but difficult degree. The bottom line is that everyone finishes in their own time, so try not to worry about what others think.1
