Walt’s Answer

I think the answer to your question mostly depends on what types of things you really like creating? Are you more interested in mixing chemicals to make new substances, or building robots, or building software, or buildings, or bridges, automobiles, or anything else man-made that you can touch or use? Each of these things requires different kinds of engineers to design, build, or improve. I would suggest you try to discover what kinds of things you would like to build or fix, or improve. Then learn what type of engineer does that work. If you discover something you love to create, every day at work will be more fun.

Rebecca’s Answer

I am glad to hear that you are interested in engineering. You are right that there are many disciplines, e.g. Civil Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Computer Engineering, Aerospace Engineering. etc. Every these engineering worksteam have their specific knowledge domain. For example:
Civil Engineering is on constructing building. Mechanical Engineering is on motors , machines, etc. Electrical & Electronica Engineering is on electric systems, power systems, etc.
You can see there are significant differences among the different engineerings. I suggest you could explore more on the different engineerings , e.g. find out information online, attend college information sessions, speak to someone who are working in the industry, seek advice from career counselor in your school, etc.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
