      Hi Daniel!

      The easiest part of engineering is probably enjoying it!! It is such a varied field, with so many different roles and responsibilities, you’re bound to find something you enjoy. Whether this is in the automotive, aerospace, civil or energy sector to name a few!

      The hardest part of engineering is keeping up with all the technological developments. To have the best solutions you really have to keep up with researching the newest software’s, materials and processes! It is important to take an interest outside of work to make sure you are up to date!!

      The IMECHE are great for this, they send out newsletters and facilitate talks on the newest engineering developments.
