      Hi Jake – sorry, my aim isn’t to convince you to become an engineer! 😉 I simply want to let people learn more about what engineering is really about, but it’s completely up to you whether you want to become one!

      (it is a great job though!)

      I’d say that you should become an engineer if that’s what you want to do! There’s no point trying if it doesn’t interest you!

      Like Mike, I’m here to try to give you a flavour of what engineering and engineers are really like!

      i think its something you have to want really! but satisfying well paid work is rare, unless your an engineer!

      Agree with all the others, what you end up doing in life is up to you, and depends how motivated you are, what you like, what opportunities come your way. For all of us engineering was a good career, but that’s our lives so if you become an engineer, great, but if that’s not what you’re interested in then follow you passion to somewhere else, best of luck!
