How can I better prepare myself for the questions that are likely to be asked in my first interview and start building a repertoire of eligibility requirements for the engineering field, especially catering towards robotics/mechanical engineering?

I am a part of an FRC team (we recently went to the World Championship :)
I am a junior in high school
I am a part of a VEX team where we made it to states.
I would love to pursue a career in engineering, especially relating to mechanical or robotics design.

How much schooling would you have to do for an average job in Mechanical Engineering.

I'm just curious on how much I would need to take, so if it doesn't take too long to get a higher level in the field that'd be great?

What is it like seeing a car you've designed being both tested and then in the future, sold and driven?

Is it a feeling of excitement or rather a feeling of worry that something could go wrong in the car then you're to blame? #automotive #mechanical-engineering #cars
