      I am very glad I became an engineer, I really can’t imagine myself doing anything else

      Yes, I love being an engineer. Engineering lets you be creative, you get to create all sorts of things but you learn how to do it in a practical way – so instead of just knowing how to design something and make it look nice, you also learn how to choose what it’s going to be made of and how you’re going to make it work. Engineering is really fun because you learn about how and why things work which you can then put to use by figuring out how to make them even better.

      Yes, I am glad I beacame engineer, but I would like to learn to play music. There is very interesting link between math and music, and I am reading about it. I learned how to play Pink Panther Theme on digital keyboard, and now I want to learn how to play the same music on saxophone.

      Absolutely! As a mechanical engineer I have the option to work in almost any career sector (basically anything that has moving parts (Cars, Planes, Boats, Space, Energy, Pharma, Water…. all need mechanical engineers). I get to design and draw things, which is what I like to do and what I am good at. I particularly like coming up with strategies on how to determine the cause of problems and how to solve them.

      Yes, I feel I can best help society with my skills through engineering. Plus I learn best through doing and engineering allows me to do that. As its constantly changing and developing I find it a fascinating field to be apart of.
