      No, I wouldn’t say hard. It can be challenging or difficult at times, but that’s one of the things I like about it – it keeps it interesting. And when you finally do find a solution to a hard problem, you get great satisfaction!

      No, I don’t find it hard now. I found it hard when studying it for my degree because we had to cover so many topics. Now, I really like it. There are times when it’s hard, when you are trying to solve something and you can’t google the answer but it’s so rewarding when you create a solution.

      Actually, every problem seems tricky at first (if it wasn’t someone would’ve already solved it) but when you get informed about what’s involved you can figure it out and propose a solution. That’s the fun part.

      sometimes yes, sometimes no. Most of the things that we do are challenging..and sometimes challenges are hard but often they are rewarding especially if you succeed.

      Engineering is not hard but it is challenging. Thats what makes it interesting.
