I studied Medical Engineering and previously worked as a test engineer for flow measuring instruments (for three years now) and find myself in a dead-end job. There are virtually no matching jobs.
While I can program quite well, I can't get a job as a programmer, because the companies prefer "full-fledged" programmers.
Is there an engineering work which is a mixture of Programming and measuring technology | physics | electrical engineering | medical engineering?
For example, PLC and automation technology you can not learn at home apparently. Therefore this is no choice for me.
As an engineer I like logical systems. And I like to improve measurement systems or products. I like programming of course. Therefore automation technology sounds good. But it is difficult to enter this field. Maybe I should apply as an software engineer (C#) and demand less salary.
