    when he grows up

    Is this sentence correct:
    1-When he grows up, he wants to be an engineer.

    I wondered whether one could put the time clause in the beginning of the sentence in written English. I think it would be better to put it in the end.

    I see- at the end might be more common, buut at the beginning is equally fine.
