Hi guys,

I have also started to branch out to Heat Exchange units/EGR Coolers.

I work in IT, but these days it feels like my job is less about fixing client software issues, and more about translating English or explaining people's jobs to them.

It's quite sad really.

Very nice, what discipline did you major in?

I'm an electrical engineer and graduated in 2014, I had considered doing the bachelors in mechanical instead but I figured the likelyhood of actually finding a job to do with cars/engines was slim to none so I went the electrical route because I figured there should be plenty of jobs in the coming years.

Sorry only just seeing this,

My Bachelor degree is Motorsport Design and Engineering, was a very fun course!

Elec Eng is a very good profession to be in, I have been in Sydney 10 weeks now and I am struggling to find Automotive Design jobs, going home for a few months soon though so will have a better look when I come back.
