While I was filling my application for University, i knew I wanted to do Engineering. I also knew it won’t be Mechanical Engineering because of a silly reason. The reason I closed the door on Mechanical Engineering was because a few years earlier in secondary school I had upsetting experiences with machine drawings. My compass keeps piercing the paper because of too many circles to draw. So i promised myself I won’t do Mechanical Engineering.
When PE, my mentor gave me a task to research on different Engineering disciplines before filling the form, I was able to come to a decision to do Civil Engineering, but also made a better decision to mix it with Business Management.
I believe in being led by God, but i also know that taking the right steps to find out about a particular industry can save you years and money for studying and working in an industry you don’t like.
