I've posted questions on other forums asking people why they became engineers, and the majority of people claimed they did it because of a passion for building things, interested in how things work, etc. However, when doing a search on this forum, I stumbled upon this thread: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=162297 Where several chemical engineers claimed they pursued the career for financial reasons. I suppose chemical engineering isn't similar to other engineering disciplines since you're more focused on chemical reactions instead of building things, so the passion for learning how things work is non-existent here. Anywho, why'd you become a chemical engineer? Money, passion, some other reason?
