Do all engineers work under the hot sun?

It is time for young students to choose degree and university and many of them avoid engineering courses due to misconceptions about the profession. Not all the engineers work under the sun or in greasy factories. As a matter of fact, many engineers spend their time in air-conditioned offices doing analysis and design. In some cases involving planning and management, engineers usually stay indoor nearly all the time. Of course, there are some civil engineers at the site, but nowadays a lot of us are employed by consulting companies, by the government and in a wide variety of industries, or maybe self-employed.

France is a very rare case because 70% of the civil engineers work for the administration.
