Not that hot
I have noticed from today’s newspaper stated that Engineering course is no longer that hot. It used to be the course of choice for bright-eyed potential scholars. Ever since then, engineering course has been knocked off its top spot by course in business related studies and the arts and social sciences.
Alas, as for my school, Singapore Management University, almost 80% of the cohorts prefer major in Banking and Finance. When I ask them why? They arguably tell me that Finance is where the money comes from.
Nowadays, students are increasingly aware of the fact that the finance sector rewards better and it’s more lucrative than engineering sectors.
However, I still urge the students to choose the course according to their interests and not merely following the trends. After my internship, I have learnt that choosing the right career is very important because it’s a place you’ll be at for a long time. So it really has to fit in with your passion.
