Hello Adam! Sorry for taking a while to reply! I’ve just answered a very similar question so I’ll let you know the answer too! 🙂
After my apprenticeship and after I have earned a degree, I hope to work towards chartered engineer status. Whilst working I would like to join the army reserves as a design engineer team officer, which helps towards chartered status. They should be able to send me to other countries to work on transportation projects. The absolute dream would be to live in America or Japan for a couple of years whilst working on a disaster management project (e.g. building for earthquakes, eeeeek!)… If this fails then at least a flood management project in the UK! At some point in my life I would like to achieve a recognised award for something and also build my own house.
That’s the dream anyway… I did say I was ambitious hahaha! 😛
