Change of career from engineering to anything else academic.
Want to change your career away from engineering? Wondering whether it is possible to switch to teaching or any other profession? Find advice from experts here for your concerns.
I have completed B.E in Mechanical Engineering. It is not something I like to do. Due to some personal reasons I completed the course- all four years of it!
Instead of simply leaving it and picking up something else to do, now, I find that, though I can fulfil the requirements at my workplace, I feel forced and find no happiness in any work I do. I am simply doing something for the sake of doing, nothing more.
I like Math, Physics and Computer software. I have scored good marks in them up to my high school and even during the first year of my engineering, after which I let my scores drop, partly due to having fallen in depression over some personal problems and partly because, I am shamed to admit, that that was the first major setback I experienced.
I tutor on the side and find that I wouldn't mind to go into that profession. I can't say that I would be very passionate about it, because the only thing I have found to be actually passionate about, until now is studying new things, especially in classroom setting. And I can't see someone offering me good salary to learn something new in Math, etc. Teaching is as close as it comes to the area I feel most comfortable in, namely the classrooms.
I would like any suggestion the reader is willing to give, though please keep in mind, that I already am aware that I have generally wasted four years in Engineering, both in terms of time and money and would appreciate that not being mentioned in your reply.
