      no they were supportive, a few of them from my hometown went into engineering but though the apprentice route. An engineer is not someone you would look at and call them mad for their choice in profession 🙂 you would call them awesome

      No, they accepted my decision, some of them became engineers as well

      Most of my friends at school did not really understand what engineers did, and weren’t necessarily interested. The few who were interested ended up being engineers as well.
