Peter’s Answer

Matthew:


The advice given above can be considered as the ideal case for preparing for college engineering; the more and the higher level your math and science courses, the better. But if you don't reach this very high level of achievement in high school, do not let that discourage you from going into engineering. There is a high level of demand for engineers and there are opportunities for students with determination and interest. However, DO take four years of math and three of sciences. And if you can take some Calculus in your Senior Year, so much the better.

Good Luck, Pete Sturtevant, PE

Matthew, that’s a great goal! Take a college preparatory track in high school. Take all the math and science you can, at least four years of each. Take AP calculus if you can. Get the highest grades in math that you can. Take AP Calculus at the B/C level if you can. If not, take A/B. Take it in the summer at community college if you need to. Calculus in college is challenging and if you can get experience with it in high school, or even place out of a semester of it with an AP course, that is an advantage. Take an AP class in science in your senior year if you can. Try to get good grades in physics, whatever level you take.
