WTH was that ?! Do you know how dumb that sounds ? I pity you.

To the starter, there are many people doing back end jobs in finance and earn wages comparable to the average engineer. I'll choose something I enjoy and excel in then spend the rest of uni time building up strong networks cause thats what matter, and enjoying that phase in life.
I would say the income growth potential of those people doing "back end jobs in finance" is higher. A poly classmate of mine started in operations and is now a credit risk vp earning $150k. She's in her mid-thirties. Pretty impressive for a diploma holder. On the other hand, all my engineering classmates (also dip holders) are not even making half that amount. How much can an engineer earn in Singapore?
