Being a subject matter expert in something that very few people want to learn is what I enjoy. In my current job, I’m surrounded with chemical engineers. I was also surrounded in my previous job by civil engineers. As an EE, I’ve always been in the minority. But the good thing about it is that you are required everywhere.
I love the diversity of the EE field. My experience includes software development for new products, construction management, quality control, project engineering, electrical distribution design for construction projects, control system engineering consultant in A&E firms, maintenance in manufacturing plants, and software development. These are all very different areas, but one electrician supported them all.
