    I'll add that, for me, chemistry was more difficult because it's a rather empirical science.

    That is to say there are rules with exceptions just because the exceptions have been measured or observed.

    I don't know how many times I've heard, "Except for Hydrogen..."

    I like my work to be predictable and demonstrable on paper without having to memorize all the known exceptions.

    Still, it's no more demanding than any other engineering discipline, just different.

    You have to love it to do well at it... just like the piano.

    It is no more difficult than the other engineering disciplines for someone who is interested and has the abilities necessary to pursue it.
