Senior Engineer

WHY CHOOSE YOUR DEGREE?

I chose to study engineering at university because I really enjoyed STEM subjects in high school so I thought engineering would align with my interests and strengths. My first year of engineering had no specific major and I explored various types of engineering including civil, mechanical, electrical and software. Going into my second year of university, I chose to major in electrical engineering because I wanted to enter the power industry and work with renewable energy technologies.
