An engineering career comes in many forms.
Just because you are an Engineer doesn’t mean you’ll wear a hard hat, ever (unless you want to). A career in engineering could find you underground in a mine, trekking across Antarctica, flying in a zero gravity simulator, working in a lab creating life-saving drugs or managing the people that do all of those things.
You know, it’s quite common to find that the CEO of a company has a degree in engineering. That’s because the skills you learn when you study engineering – like problem solving and project management – can be applied to any industry and pretty much any job.

If you want diversity and action all rolled into one, choose a career in engineering. The only limit on engineering careers is your own imagination.
