Whats my career goal?
I am a junior from High school and I recently took physics and fell in love with the class even though the material wasn't easy but the class just fascinated me and my favorite subject is math, so I'm thinking about becoming and aerospace engineer engineer mechanical-engineering math college
Critical Thinking: most of the problems you'll face as an ME will be very ambiguous (which is why you'll probably be involved) and you'll need to use your critical thinking aptitude that you've built through your studies and previous experience to really analyze problems/objectives and come up with novel solutions
Communication: A big flaw for some engineers is the inability to effectively articulate technical information to a non-technical audience. So working on this trait is imperative for actually executing and gaining buy-in for the proposals that you make as an engineer
Relationship-building: Being able to work as a team and collaborate is very important especially in corporate jobs, where you have a large scope for a project which requires inputs and collaboration from different teams (and even multiple engineers). Being open minded, collaborative, and focused on a team's mutual goal is a big key to success
I choose engineering for some of the same reasons as you because of my love of math and physics. I took a physics course my senior year of high school and from there knew that I wanted to be an engineer and now im 4 classes away from graduating. While physics gives you a good introduction of the subjects that are taught in engineering it doesnt give you the full scope of the topics so given the opportunity I would suggest trying to take an engineering course or two so you can understand all the designing and structural course that you will have to take. In the end for almost everyone whos trying to figure out what they want to do for a career I always suggest taking some time to imagine what you see yourself doing in lets say 10 or 20 years and the type of impact that you want to have on your community. Overall im glad to see how interested you are in engineering becuase I know that feeling and its a wild ride but hard work and determination and you will be an engineer in no time!

Enter Linkedin and Instagram and follow the pages of NASA and other space agencies in the world, astronauts, aerospace technology companies and you will then be able to see if this is the world you really want to follow.
I'm sure you will succeed!
