I think engineering has a bad rap. When people
think of engineering, they think of a mechanic, or they think of an oily rag in the back pocket
of an engineer on a workshop floor, and you couldn’t be further from the truth. It ranges
from chemical engineering to instrumentation and control engineering, electrical engineering,
mechanical engineering… There are so many vast arrays and they all basically boil down
to an understanding of physics and how the world works, and solving problems. If you
can solve people’s problems, that’s a very exciting place to be.
