      Hi that one guy!

      That is one question! If I’m completely honest, I don’t think I would choose another engineer if I couldn’t choose Biomedical Engineering. I think that I would be happier as a vet surgeon than as any other type of engineering! Are you interested on engineering? What type?

      I probably wouldn’t be in engineering at all. My background is microbiology, so I’d probably just be a pure microbiologist!

      Great question,

      If i were to start again i would try to focus on learning computer code! It is a great skill to have and something that should definitely be learnt early if you can. Unfortunately in my degree we learnt Matlab and i didn’t put much emphasis on it and couldn’t see the use, but it would be such a massive addition to my skill set if i know it now.

      So, i am now trying to learn Python and R code to help me with my work but it is a lot harder than it would have been had i paid attention to start with.

      Oooooo that’s a good one….

      I think I’d choose to be a structural engineer. I’m always fascinated by how buildings are put together and I think it would be really cool to design as well as help build them.

      I would like to be a mechanical engineer or if not, software engineer. I would love to be able to code (make programs) and create things that move on their own.

      I’d be an out and out software engineer or a space/aerospace engineer.
