What I like the most is the satisfaction of seeinga building, bridge, or road being build well. And saying I had a hand in building that! What I dislike about being a engineering tech and that is the winter weather col, raw winds etc.

As the above person mentioned the act of seeing a completed Subdivision/Industrial Park makes me feel good. I can go back after all the construction is done a feel that I have made a difference.

Like the above mentioned, having a hand in the final product. Also the challenge is a good motivator and the feeling that you can move up in this industry. My dislikes are having to keep up with certifications more than in the past and increases in paperwork/computer-work over the years...kind of makes one feel like a glorified secretary.
