"Do it for yourself!"
Project Engineer:
If you go to any engineering school seeking fame or fortune quit. Engineers in most circles are revered as know it all's who get everything wrong, by operators, constructors, and technicians. This is probably due to engineers who know how to take tests so that they may get a job one day and command a salary and notable respect and have no real passion for what they do. When in fact these type burn out or tend to make huge mistakes or are ignorant to others who may not be engineers but offer years of experience instead which misrepresents the engineering profession. My advice is be passionate in what you do, and source out all intel available as it may save your job someday. Most engineers are paid low when compared to their responsibilities/liabilities ( a welder in Alberta makes more than the engineer who designs the systems they're assembling), so those who are doing this line of work better enjoy it.
