Yes, it is awesome to be an engineer. Well I find it so. I used to be a Company Director, but found I was doing so many management things that i was not doing as much engineering. After 6 years i “down-sized” my job and became a Mechanncial engineer with CCFE concentrating on engineering and design of bits for ITER and have never regretted it. I have the advantage that my children are now grown up and working for themselves. Anyway if you think that engineering might be for you, do please consider it and take all opportunity to visit places of interest such as colleges and universities where thy teach engineering. For instance i recommend visiting Bletchley Park where codes were broken in the war, and see the very first electrical computer in the world………….
