      That’s an excellent question! I love learning new things and putting them to the test, and naturally schools are a fantastic environment to do that in.
      Part of being an engineer may require you to learn a new skill or to use a new technology to complete your job.

      Out of the two I’d say work, at least I get paid to learn there 😉

      That’s really hard to answer. I really like my job, but I’m currently taking a few years off to go back to uni and do my PhD. I really like learning about cool new stuff. I think when I’m finished at uni, I will try to do a bit of working as an engineer, and a bit of working at the university. I love that I’m going to have the ability to do both!
