Christian, this is a great question. The difficulty of an engineering education is based strongly on aptitude and attitude. If you are comfortable with higher level math classes and physics, you have the aptitude to do well in engineering school. Engineering program is more difficult and challenging that a lot of other majors. The classwork leaves you less free time than some other degrees. This means that you will need to be focused on the end goal of graduating with an engineering degree.

As Simon said, engineering can be a very rewarding career path in doing things that are exciting, challenging, and provide you will a good income.

Everyone want to solve problems and know how a gadget or process works. Once they give up , then the engineer is called in.

I like to thing that Mechanical Engineering stands out as the ultimate discipline because it starts with figuring out the nature of things and ends with harnessing that nature.

Just look at that beer ( ehem, soda...) can in front of you. Can you even imagine what it took to extrude that thing? Someone did, took 30 years, but nonetheless they did. Engineers tend to see the amazing world of technology differently... for what it is.

With that in mind, the answer to your question is ... Mechanical engineers face the most challenging issues of any career.. technology. But remember, your background and training prepared you to handle it. You will intuitively see things from perspectives nobody else can possibly visualize.

Any engineering field will be challenging, but that’s what makes it so rewarding. Mechanical Engineering can include machines, structures, processes (chemical in my case) and project work. The key is to enjoy what you are doing and engineering will provide a great income and level of variety. Good luck.
