Talwinder Singh, who completed the Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from University at Buffalo, New York, in May 2016 shares his experience pursuing his engineering dream.
“My interest lies in solving technical related problems. That got me into engineering in the first place,” he tells Asia Samachar when asked why he opted for engineering.
In an earlier news reports, Associate Prof Dr Mandeep Singh when looking at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) suggested that a casual observation of the university where he teaches has seen fewer SIkh students pursuing engineering-related courses.
Dalvinder Singh, who had just completed an engineering programme at University Teknologi Petronas (UTP), had shared his experience in .
This is what Talvinder has to say:
I personally feel many high school graduate don’t really understand the means and the career prospects in engineering. They don’t understand the endless possibilities there is to venture into in engineering.
Instead, they prefer something more black and white, something safer, preferable medicine and law.
My interest lies in solving technical related problems. That got me into engineering in the first place.
Only after a few prerequisite courses that i opted for mechanical engineering instead of the many other engineering programs out there. As I took on more courses, I started to get drawn into gas turbine and power.
Like every other course, I found engineering very challenging but I truly believe if one has the interest in something then the journey gets a lot less difficult.
How wold sum up my five years experience pursuing engineering courses? I would say some were challenging, some even more challenging, and never easy.
