Hello, I have been restoring my convertible for 3 years now and she is nearly on the road :D . I completed an apprenticeship in Panel Beating, taking a particular interest in sheet metal work I found myself restoring many vehicles for other people over a 7 year period and really wanted one for myself. During this time I completed a Mechanical engineering degree, now working as a design engineer for a British vehicle manufacturer alongside studying for a masters degree in Automotive engineering.

Ah great, just the thread.------- plenty of students here, and hopefully a tutor. What's the difference between a student studying a subject and a student reading a subject? :roll:

C'mon you can't all be as mystified as me! Especially those that read or studied. :D

How snobby the university and subject matter are...
You read history at Cambridge.
You study engineering at Sheffield.

Thanks for your thoughts,I did suspect it was an ego trip but thought there might be a possibility of it being a more tangible thing! You get it a lot on university challenge. Most seem to study but then you get the odd few who apparently read!

Just been given a clue.
A recent university challenge featured a university team of four, the third student said they were studying history, the following student said he was " also reading history" pretty conclusive they are one of the same. So we can reasonably say that the latter is expressing a degree of self importance, that the former sees as unnecessary! When I worked in a hospital I did broach this conundrum to a professor over there, he answered by putting his finger horizontally under his nose. Looks like he was right! :D

Tubey - when you said you were a train engineer, I thought you meant a train driver in America (like good old Casey Jones) but then I guess that would be a 'railroad engineer'! :wink:
