Re: The most useless module you've done at university

I know some other engineers here. What is the deal with that?
I thought engineering was very marketable anywhere.
Burnout, not sure how true it is but was constantly told the average career span of an electrical/computer engineer is like 6 years. Tons of them switch jobs because it's so stressful with deadlines, and politics. Also very toxic environment, it's very very male dominated. Women engineers have it tough, that Activision/Blizzard scandal shows it has along way to go when it comes to how the industry treats women. Also, job opportunities cycle like in any other industry, and some just are unlucky with the timing. There are like 4/5 major branches of engineering, and each of them do have different up/down cycles where grads can't get jobs. Lot of them go back to school, or just switch industries all together even before they get a chance to get a degree related job.
