Yeah it is, even though at times it probably doesn’t feel like that! When I was at school I thought all teachers just wanted to take the fun out of life – but all definitely worth it. After all this country depends on the next generation of school-leavers on becoming engineers!
Hmmmmmmmmmm, you kind of have to do it really to be on the career path and a solid future. The engineering instistutions have ways and means to accept other routes but it takes a lot of time. Id say best to bite the bullet early rather than late……….
I think if you really want to have a particular career, no matter what it is, then the extra time to get the qualifications you need, is worth it in the end. Its horrible to be stuck in a job you hate!
