      It is amazing, challenging, interesting, sometimes tiring and frustrating but it is a great life experience

      Being an engineer is exciting and creative. You have to design solutions to real world problems, which involves inventing new things and trying them out. You learn new things all the time and get to try out cutting edge technology, so there’s always something fresh to keep you interested.

      Bring an engineer is challenging (in a good way), rewarding and most of all, great fun. In our building, there are always 2 to 3 really interesting projects going on, and everyone is really friendly, and willing to help out with whatever you’re doing.
      There’s something different to be done almost every day, with new problems being reported, and new solutions figured out. You never stop learning.
      I would recommend it as a career to anyone with an interest in engineering or even in related subjects.
