  1. “Someone who knows Enough mechanics to confuse a chemist, Enough Chemistry
    to confuse a mechanic and Enough math to confuse himself.” Brilliant, I
    wouldn’t have put it in any other way.

  2. OMG! Tons of sleepless nights. Sleepless days, memorizing ENDLESS chemical
    compounds, I should have just chosen to be a doctor and been done with it,
    that’s what I was thinking at the time before I graduated LOL! One thing I
    know, based on myself and others I graduated with is that you don’t have to
    be a certified genius to become an engineer, just determined and have some
    kind of pride in what you do! However if you are American i’d recommend
    moving overseas for better opportunities.

  3. @Lemurai I don’t know where you’ve done you Chemical Engineer Bachelor, but
    here in Canada there no such thing as “memorizing ENDLESS chemical
    compounds”. Working hard on mathematical formula, learning and
    understanding physical and chemical phenomena, that’s what WE’ve been
    trained for. anyway, Chem eng. study rocks!
