<p>I am Master in Electrical /Electronic Engineering graduated in 2009
Presently working as junior engineer in industrial automation company.</p>
<p>However I am not sure if fit in all that tech stuff.
Honestly I studied engineering because of better job opportunities in the future ( I live in Eastern Europe where assured workplace and living funds could be problematic).
I find myself more humanities oriented. In high school was more oriented to history, language philology, geography. I was average in Math and even worse in Psychics and Informatics. I passed final high school exam in Mathematics and Psychics at good level but it took me long hours to get through it.</p>
<p>Going further it could be said that I sailed through my engineering studies. I managed to finish studies with good scores and during whole studying period haven't had any serious troubles with exams.However again I was spending a lot of time studying and didn't have many time for other activities. Another aspect is important to mention; my engineering course was mainly based on theoretical exams rather than practical (it is style of carrying engineering education in my country). Therefore with aid of system developed in high school (spending lot of time at doing a lot of exercises to find the universal solution method) I was very good at passing written exams.(mathematics, algebra, electrodynamics, circuit theory)In practical sessions (measurements, programming, laboratory work...) I was less efficient but managed to pass with minimum or average result.
As I said at the beginning I think am not well suited to engineering. In daily life I am rather intuitive than logical thinker.
My free time activities are not chess or other logical games. Neither I am computer geek, programmer. I am not assemble and take to pieces my PC much...
I have problems with math I think. (despite good grades at HS and Uni) All mathematics stuff quickly evaporates from my head.
After years of studying I cannot remember for example logarithm rules. Also it is difficult for me to make calculations without calculator (mental arithmetic)-even in the shop to calculate change! Also complicated engineering calculations take me a lot of time because I make plenty mistakes and need additional time to recall all that rules for various arithmetic calculations....
Maybe I am better in remembering dates and facts from the past,names of the novelist, geographical names and locations and so.....In present work I am quite reliable but just average worker, not enormously clever one....
After all can say that engineering topics are interesting but I feel not confident and gifted enough to handle it.
So it is a question: Can everybody be an engineer? Else only person with dedicated brain/ skills type could be?
Maybe I need hard training and experience to brush up my skills or it does not make sense in my case (wrong person in wrong place situation) ???</p>
<p>I feel rally lost in my situation.
Looking at one side ; I have engineering degree and maybe its pity to leave that way.
In other hand if all my work put in my engineering career seems to be worthless why to carry on with?
Really i do not know my flair. Maybe I should be journalist/ writer/ artist but never tried it. Also at age 25 it tend to be late for such experimentation....</p>
