Those are all great career options. Which of the three do you see yourself doing for the rest of your life? When you love doing something, it doesn't feel like work. The Automotive industry has been evolving tremendously in the past few years with the increasing high demand for electric cars. Here in California, some community colleges are offering Bachelors degrees in Automotive. If a career in the auto mechanics is your career goal, I would suggest you contact/research the colleges near you that offer trainings in automotive. As with any potential career goal, I also always advise to talk to employers in the industry and if possible obtain a part-time job to gain more knowledge. A degree and work experience significantly increases your chances for employment and better opportunities once you graduate.
Welding is also a good trade. It requires vocational training after high school. If this is what you prefer, I would recommend looking into joining an apprenticeship program for welders. Also, do some research of the job demand for welders in the area that you live in to make sure you have job opportunities.
Engineering is a great career as well. There are many types of engineering, aerospace, electrical, mechanical, etc. It does require a bachelors degree at a four year college. Engineering requires a lot of math but it is usually a well paid career. Here's a website you can do more research about this and other careers you may be interested in:
Good luck! I'm sure you'll make the right choice.
Hope this helps,
