Hi all, Basically, I am studying Mechanical Engineering in South Africa, and want to know where this qualification would take me in terms of yachts. I did a successful season in 2008 as a decky, but decided to head back to SA to get an education. I am now in my 2nd year (of 4). My plan is/was to finish, head overseas and work somewhere like Canada or Spain for a few years as a straight up engineer (and in the process get hold of a better passport) and then move into the yacht world as a engineer/deck crew on a nice medium size sailing yacht. Might be a pipe dream? But ja... Am i wasting my time studying engineering, just for the sake of working on yachts, when there are obviously schools were I can get a more yacht specific training? Part of the reason I am studying engineering is because I wanted a fall back, for when whatever career path I chose didn´t work out! Any advice is more than welcome! I am semi-considering to blow off varsity and head out to do the 1st course to become an engineer! (Long week of 8-5 lectures in Stellenbosch in mid summer will do that to you!) K1W1 if you don´t mind giving me your opinion?
