Hi guys,

I had Maths degree so can I work in Engineering area? I realise that I actually have no clue about how to design or building anything, but I'm really interested in doing so.

So if I want to follow Engineer path, what should I show in my resume so that I can get a hold of a job? I felt I lack of so many things, would any company still take me in?

Thanks,
Jason

You have to apply your skills in physics and material science and you will succeed.

Of course there are many things to learn. You may start from finite element analyses and later become a mechanical or electrical profi.

The good news is that the most important thing to become an engineer is to want to and you do.

Good luck!

I did load of Physics modules in my course but they are all about nuclear physics, quantum, astrophysical,... and absolute nothing about material at all.
Sure that I have to learn, but the problem now is that how can I get an employer to get me in and teach me :(

Nobody will get you in to teach you unless you do not kidnap some relevant of his. Nobody will also hire a mechanical engineer to teach him in quantum physics.

Start with CAE - computer aided engineering, look for employers which use mathlab or sth. similar.

Find some CAD software and try it out.

Just be around the engineers and ask about everything. in two years you could start as junior.

Seems to be a tough way to go through. 2 years is a long way tho, would there be any shorter route?

I suppose that you know your way trough maths and Computer assisted maths tools like MathCad/MathLab or SImulink.

Apply to all job posting that have those words included . You'll stand good chance. Most Engineers still hve a lower level of Mathematics science at equate graduation level.
