It is a versatile profession, working for the betterment of life and has a better career prospect than any other profession.

I have chosen this field because I want to use my skills for the benefits of society. They have an influence on every field of work. They invent medical tools to facilitate in surgeries and different types of machinery to speed up the industrial work. Engineers open the door to a better future.
Another major drawcard of being a professional engineer is that engineering is a global profession. It is needed everywhere in the world, hence provides a great opportunity to get jobs anywhere around the world. Engineers are meant not to just please themselves but also others – since they are the one who will help people towards a better life. Therefore, to be an engineer would be a great honour for me.
