Hi my name is Alex and I have the goal of becoming an engineer. Either mechanical or biomedical. I like medical and technical things so I feel biomedical would be awesome. Get to help people but use my brain to solve complex problems and be creative. Anyways, my problem is that I am an electrician apprentice and I don't love it. I don't feel excited to get up for work or sometimes feel anxiety from it. But the thing is I've heard a lot that this trade can help me become a better engineer or at least gain practical experience that will hopefully give me a leg up. I also make more money that I would anywhere else and it will only go up from here. Also I can go to school while I'm in the apprenticeship. I've been debating on getting a degree in engineering or CS but have been leaning towards engineering because of the leg up I'll have from my job. Will this trade really help me in the mechanical or biomedical engineering field? I honestly like the electrical stuff I'm learning but I can't stand the work environments or various other things. It affects my asthma with all the dust and what not. It's physically demanding and my apprenticeship will still last 4.5 more years. I also aim to make 6 figures one day but I'm not thinking too much about that right now. Just a goal for later. Any advice would help. Sorry if info seems to be missing I'm typing this on my break at work on my phone ha. Just ask any questions and I'll reply. Thank you.
