Creative Juice got a reaction from admin in Advice On Direction
Hi, Hopefully these advice counts -
You don't have to have a day job to build a career on design, and I disagree that material science does not offer room for creativity. Robert Kiyosaki would have hated me for this, but you should finish your material science degree - you can build a career from that and there are no bars to limit your creativity about that. As for your design career, you can market your designs in the internet and start out your company and learn from there. You will most likely be starting from scratch but at least you will know your true capacity and no one will ever limit what you want to do.
At the end of the day, if you don't really like your course, start out a new. If you don't see any fulfillment, go quit and start with a course at design.
