If you are considering if engineering careers are right for you, we here are Belanger Engineering have a few ways to help you decide if this is the right career path for you.

  • Find your why. Why are you considering engineering careers? Is it because you like to build things? Because you know of the steady job growth and earning potential? Perhaps because you enjoy solving problems? These are all good reasons for considering engineering careers, but figuring out your own “why” (i.e. you want to build and design greener housing or you want to build the rockets and probes that will explore Mars) can help you to narrow down the area of engineering and engineering careers that will be best for you.
  • Work in your comfort zone. Many people enjoy engineering careers because it enables them to work in the type of environment where they are most comfortable.
