- Listening to:Trick Pony - On a Night Like This
For the last couple of years whenever anyone asked me what I was going to study in university I usually answered, "工学部" OR "Engineering, but I'm still trying to figure out the adjective that comes in front of engineering." Well a couple of months ago I decided that civil engineering was going to be my thing. Since that decision, anytime I answer that question it is immediately followed by "why civil engineering?"
I'm sure people as me this question since they see me as, A. a computer engineer, B. a mechanical engineer, or C. a electrical engineer. Besides, civil engineering is so boring, who wants to design sewers? Well I do. Although I have an engineer's mentality for many things, the thought of being stuck in R & D scared the hell out of me. Civil engineering seems to have more open atmosphere of cooperation and less cut throat competition. The goals of civil engineering are clear and stable, as opposed to the "newer" fields in engineering. Civil engineering would also give me an opportunity to pursue study in environmental matters.
Reading over that last paragraph, I realize that my reasons don't seem clear, but they are clear in my mind. I hope that this entry confuses people even more people as to why I chose civil engineering.
