Dear readers, Firstly I would like to say that I'm a new member to the Physics Forum and I hope to meet many people who share my passion for science and, at present, engineering (because lets face it, science/engineering is awesome!). As a recent chemistry graduate at the University of Edinburgh, I have picked up a variety of technical and transferable skills from my recent involvement with internships and university, and now seek a change in career practice. One discipline which has caught my eye is electrical engineering; specifically telecommunications and satellite communications. It would be invaluable for me if anyone could tell me a little about what the engineering course entails (I appreciate many posts have been made on such questions and answering this question may seem daunting), what you personally enjoyed the course when studying it, the challenges and rewards associated with this profession, the people you work with, culture fit and basically anything else of importance which you believe to be essential for new starts going into the electrical engineering profession. Professionals who have done alternative engineering degrees/courses such as mechanical, civil, chemical or otherwise, your information would be a godsend for me as well. Thanks for reading. Luke. PS. I posted this thread on the Physics Forum, but something tells me it was the wrong section. Whoops!
