“I choose electrotechnique because it is the closest to my dad’s profession. Before that, I didn’t like studying in academic school and I couldn’t excel.
This training is technically-advanced and involves the use of new technology.
Our job is divided into parts: drawing the map, operating the cables, and setting up the mechanic installation in the panel. The best thing about teamwork is that it helps pass on experience among colleagues. Some might have more skills for a specific task and can transmit his experience to the others.
In Lebanon, people tend to think that graduating for university is more important that graduating in a technical school, but I don’t think so. Because, we, as BT graduates, have more working experience, we do more internship and we know how to work with our hands.
With my BT diploma, I can find a job easily an I can even have my own business. I should definitely though keep myself up to date with the technology component.”
