      Its pretty stressful at times if im honest! There are so many stakeholders (people with input into the design) that sometimes there is a lot of conflict. On the whole, its pretty challenging, which is good, it wouldn’t be fun if it was easy!

      Generally its a lot of talking, and a lot of thinking! Engineering has a reputation for being all about maths and physics, but its so much more, its like a massive puzzle! Trying to get everything to work with each other, and making sure all the points are connected! Its a constant struggle… and its all about compromise!
