Why Engineering? I didn't – it chose me. I didn't want to be a typical "civil engineer" or "structural engineer," and I didn't like the options that were offered to me at the university. So, I did science, and first job was as an Engineering Geologist in Australia. I worked alongside geotechnical engineers and field workers, and later I worked within a geotechnical engineering consultancy where I essentially did 4 roles in one (field worker, lab technician, engineering geologist and geotechnical engineer). I was good at math and engineering but I also enjoyed the artsy/visual side of geotechnical engineering (but I wasn't quite as hardcore into geology as other pure geologists), which is why being an engineering geologist was a good fit for me at the time. But I've decided I want to have more options when I get older so I am pursuing my engineering undergraduate degree.
