      I think everyone can do their bit to try and save the planet even without a degree. However, having an engineering degree will also give you the necessary technical knowledge to try and design/modify/invent things that can help the planet and people.

      I think so. Engineering skills and the understanding of different engineering problems that you get from a degree can be applied to make the world a better place. We can help inform others to make better choices for the planet and design technologies to help us get there 🙂
      BUT, I don’t think you need a degree of any form to help save the planet. Everyone has the ability and responsibility to do their bit.
