Could you please explain the differences between Civil, Architectural, and Mechanical Engineering? Also, could you suggest which one I should possibly take?

I consider math as a "specialty" for me and I think that these three areas will be ones that I consider for my career, however I still am struggling on which I should strive for, so any suggestions would be helpful! #mathematics #civil-engineering #engineering...
