      I think it’s the thought process that you go through to create something. Using the equipment is fun and everything, but wherever you go there will be different equipment that you’ll get trained to use. Learning how to look at a problem, design a solution and then work out how to make the solution is vital for any aspect of engineering. It’s the part that will (I think) really make you successful 🙂

      The process of creating a product design specification. This can be transferred over all of engineering and so much of science in general.
