Although he "only" held a master's degree from MIT, Howard Wolowitz eventually managed to become an astronaut and aerospace engineer. At the beginning of the series, Howard's love life was a bit of a failure—until Penny introduced him to her coworker, Bernadette, who went on to become the mother of his children. The pair initially bonded over a mutual dislike toward their overbearing mothers.
