After getting my practical engineer degree in mechatronics, I wanna get on with a first degree in medical engineering. The reason I'm doing mechatronics first has to do with strange admission requirements for medical engineering, and doing a mechatronic practical engineer is my way of doing a shortcut and that way I could avoid a lot of silly admission requirements from those without a practical engineer degree. What do you think? Does it look like the right way of doing things? How close is medical engineering to mechatronics? Or is the biology-chemistry knowledge in med-engineering is massive and valuable, so things are very different? I really want to apply the use of machines to better humans suffering medical conditions. (Restore eyesight, build a bionic hand, etc). Studying mechatronics, I really feel kinda detached from all this to the point it can sometimes make me depressed And yet, most of the time I ignore that, and just focus on the basics we're studying. Physics. I love losing myself in the material, seeing vectors and calculations, math and the simple way things work. That's pretty exciting! My only problem is, that after taking a step back, I always get sad. I am about to start my 3rd and final semester of the first year. And my heart is aching. Can you heal it, and show me maybe that the gap is shorter than I think?
