Engineers From All Fields Lets Meet Here by Morgan1092(m): 8:44am On Dec 20, 2012
Hi Great Engineers! Wht branch of Engineering did u study, what re d challenges in school ova d field and how re u finding d proffession now? Do u hav any regret studying it? And wht en-/discouragement wil u giv 2 some 1 who wants 2 study d same branch of engineering as urs?


For me: I studied Chemical Engineering (War head), though it wasn't an easy 1 back in school due 2 lack of practicals. But now am enjoying d career because am in2 Graduate Training programme in Cement Production, where i hv met d practical aspect of wht i studied. My encouragement goes 2 any 1 who has d passion 2 study Chemical Engineering, jst kip ur fingers crossed, be focused n study hard, and u wil find d course easy. Ova 2u NL!

studied Electrical Engineering, but not worked as an engineer for about 9 years, find it awfully boring.

Was dat nt ur dream course, wht hapn?
Re: Engineers From All Fields Lets Meet Here by mhm(m): 1:43pm On Dec 20, 2012
I think I studied it because my parents and uncles were all engineers, and funny enough I actually graduated at the top of my class. however upon graduation the jobs I kept getting were not engineering related. so hence the deviation, it wasn't really a choice to deviate.

but looking back now at what my friends do in engineering, I don't miss it. I just guess that I have a preference for jobs of a commercial nature, selling, finance etc.

not to say that engineering is not also a very good profession oh

I just graduated from uni this month and as a young lady, i must say I'm proud to be a Software Engineer. The work is really challenging, detail oriented and sometimes tedious. You must be prepared to keep learning new languages, new programming paradigms nd new development environments.

I studied Chemical Engineering and I work as a process engineer designing separation and mass transfer equipment for (mainly) the oil and gas industry. But sometimes my projects include environmental or biological requests from customers. A part of me wants to work in civil engineering so that I can help develop African infrastructure. The reason I chose chemical engineering was because chemistry is the fundamental basis of all life and the engineering aspect of my profession would allow me to apply it to practical issues.

My words of advice are to love what you do and do not make decisions which will negatively affect others. The primary responsibility of the engineer is to put others first before their own personal needs. We try to create solutions and not create new problems. It is a humbling task.

go for BSc, if you can.

if not, aim for MSc after your HND

deolub: ...hmmmm *sighs* presently am in the banking sector (don't ask me why) probably cos of the very attractive pay...but gradually I am finding my way back to structural engineering...cos I am still very passionate about it...
Hmmm! Hmmm!! Neva mind as far as it put food on ur table n u re happy abt it. Gud luck
Re: Engineers From All Fields Lets Meet Here by iweoru: 7:08pm On Dec 30, 2012
I hope you eventually find a job related to your career path. Engineering is a very emotionally and mentally rewarding career path. It can be stressful at times when dealing with some customers. But when you see the impact of your work, you will really appreciate your abilities. Don't give up on your dream; money isn't everything.

deolub: I studied civil engineering....graduated with a good result and I am so much passionate about the profession....started with construction then consulting then some energy company experience...hmmmm *sighs* presently am in the banking sector (don't ask me why) probably cos of the very attractive pay...but gradually I am finding my way back to structural engineering...cos I am still very passionate about it...

Nice thread. I am a graduate chemical engineer, expertly skilled with AutoCAD 2D/3D. Not laid hands on any "real" job yet.

Months back, I stumbled on a website/forum for Nigerian Engineers, thought to share here.

Good to know Engineers now understand how networking helps

Hy, i aspire to be an elect/elect eng. But i want to know what are the likely places you can work at, can u be self employed( i mean not going out of ur elect/elect field but using ur profesional skils to be on ur own).
