John’s Answer

Research the field a bit. Check out www.bls.gov/ooh Will give you lots of info about this and many fields.

Step 1 is to make sure you take calculus, physics and chemistry in High School. This will make it easier once you get to college.

Next find a college you want to attend that has Engineering. Sometimes a Junior college may have a pre-engineering program which will allow you to transfer to a larger school to finish your 4 year degree.

Checkout the college you may want to go to and chat with a councilor. Also, the requirements are probably on their website.
