      It can be …but for people always looking for new challenges (in this case an engineer) there are plenty of things to do to avoid that.

      Only from time to time! Do you enjoy all subjects at school? It’s similar in any job, we have certain preferences and like some activities more than others but most of the time engineering is fun!

      Repeating experiments or meeting dead-ends can make you feel stuck and bored sometimes. But “Not quiting, till you make it work!” should be your moto

      It never gets boring for me, everything I do always has some new thing I learn.

      When something is “boring” it’s often how we think about it that makes it boring. I find that if I start thinking that something is boring I try to look at it in a different way – is there a way I can do it quicker – is there newer technologies or techniques that can be used and so that way I’m not often bored.
