      Totally!, it’s one of the coolest jobs you can do, where else do you get to know about new tehcnology and gadgets before they’re realeased? you could even be one of the people that helps develop them!
      Imagine getting to help design or build the new IPhone then being able to turn around to your friends and say “Yeah I designed that bit” Also you get uber respect from people if you tell them you’re an engineer.

      If I tell someone my occupation, people are always impressed. Engineers tend to be likeable because people think we can fix everything! The truth is that engineers don’t panic when they see a problem and can think logically how to go about something.

      And the engineers that I know all have a brilliant sense of humour. Yep, I’d say we’re pretty cool 🙂
