- I’m 21, and I’m going for my BA and then MS, and possibly PhD, in electrical engineering. My main area of research is space systems engineering and control theory. But I was never initially interested in space or modern electronics. While a do have a very deep passion for electrical engineering, it’s somewhat out of place. My love of vacuum tube technology is what got me interested in EE, but I’m about 70yrs too late for that. I love what I do, and I’ll get paid well for it, but it was never what I originally wanted to do.
When I was in High School I was dead-set on Nuclear Engineering. But no schools near me had any good programs. Plus I learned it wasn’t anywhere near as glamourous as I had initially thought it to be. My backup plans of joining the French Foreign Legion or going to Africa and becoming a gun-runner were quickly shot down my parents. So I just went with electrical engineering. Which is by no means something I regret.
Now I just live my days as a humble engineering student; getting up at 7:00AM and staying in the lab until well after midnight. Most of my hobbies are on the back burner for a while, but life is like that sometimes. I have no worries. I have no realistic idea of what I want to do after college. I’m open to anything. If my new semi-plan works out, I’ll be an electrical engineer by day, and vigilante fashion designer by night. I don’t know exactly how that would even work, but I have faith.
If I had to give any advice, it would be to not be afraid to take chances, and try not to limit yourself by saying you can’t do certain things. I have brain damage and I’m leading a team of engineers to build a satellite. I never once thought I’d be where I am today. I took a chance, and I’m glad I did. And don’t worry if you fail; if something is worth doing, it’s better to fail at it than to have never done it at all.
Whatever you decide to do, good luck, and Godspeed.
