Electrical Engineer Watch
Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place - new here and looking for some advice.
I'm currently studying HNC electrical engineering (course completion in summer 2016). My question is this:
I've been studying for some years now, and honestly, I'm getting a tad tired of the constant theory based learning and would like to be quite hands on. However, I'm at an awkward stage whereby opting for an apprenticeship seems a waste of the years I've already studied, right?
Could someone highlight any options that might be available to me, or perhaps what the best course of action should be? Do I opt for an apprenticeship (which seems alarmingly underpaid), is a graduate/trainee position available with only a HNC? Or should I just persevere and continue longer in academic studies? Also, to clarify, I currently have no physical experience in the industry, only theory based learning at college.
Hope someone is able to give me some pointers! Thanks in advance.
