hello, I'm new to the forum. I'd like to know, why people major in engineering, and then get out into the job market, and decide that engineering is not for them. I keep hearing people say "it's not what i thought it would be". One of my chem profs had a PhD in Mech engineering and he said it was all about deadlines. He now studies nanotechnology at UK. I'm sure it has to be more than just about deadlines. So what is it about engineering that turns some people off? thanks!
