How do I choose the right type of engineering for me? I do not even know what there is all out there I can do.

I don't know what field I should choose and what would fit me best. There are so many options for engineers.

Simon’s Answer

The nice thing about engineering is that engineering covers almost all areas of interest. If machines interest you, machanical engineering would be a likely choice. Likewise electric and electronic and controls. If you like buildings, roads, dams etc., civil is a good direction. If chemistry and processes fascinate you, chemical engineering might be for you. Logistics and industrial engineering are seeing a comeback. You can even be a mechanical engineer in the chemical industry. I had a great career managing projects and a staff that installed large projects all over the US. Good luck.

Peter’s Answer

Kiah:

There are a number of different fields of engineering and it can be tough deciding which field you want to enter. I suggest that you attend a college that gives a wide variety of engineering degrees. During your Freshman and Sophomore years you will be required to take introductory classes (and can hopefully choose a couple more). This will give you a sense of the types of work, level of mathematics, etc. that makes up an engineering discipline. Hopefully, at least one will especially appeal to you and you can enter that engineering program as a Junior.

Good luck in your academics, Pete Sturtevant, PE
