No not at all. Females are welcomed into engineering just like males. I’ve seem a big increase of great female engineers over the past 10-15 years. To get into an engineering school/ program you need to have good grades in math and sciences as well as good written and verbal skills. If you can get involved in team activities and/or engineering programs. Creative thinking is very helpful as well as some drawing skills. So being a female or male does not matter. Take control of your future by taking the right courses, getting good grades, and participating in teams.
Simon recommends the following next steps:
- Start looking into engineering programs to see what interest you.
- Take math and science courses.
- Get involved in team projects.
