      It depends on the job. In biomed devicedesign the most difficult part is ensuring your product is safe for use in humans!

      I think the toughest thing for me is the uncertainty. Sometimes you work so hard on something but you’re not sure that it will work – so it can be tense as you try to make something thats good enough.

      Hi 875,

      Hardest thing for me is the paperwork. But the actual engineering is always great! 🙂
