Ask An Engineer

Welcome to our Ask an Engineer Feature!

This is the place where you can ask those questions you still have about engineering careers.  You can read profiles of practicing engineers in the I'm An Engineer section and ask them a question directly, or you can submit a question here to have EngineerGirl staff try to find the right person to answer you.

Since other people may have already asked the question on your mind, please take time to search through the Ask an Engineer Answers to see what others have already said about your topic. You may also find the list of FAQs about Engineering helpful.  These answers were not provided directly by engineers in the directory, but they will give you a basic understanding of what you need to know about an engineering career.

If your question is for the EngineerGirl Team please first take time to review the Resource FAQs that cover the basics of what we can provide for you from EngineerGirl.

Also, since we cannot give you actual engineering advice, if you need help designing that booster rocket for your own spacecraft or other project, you may find a resource on this list of other Engineering Q&A sites.

Submit a question

Ask that question you've been dying to ask. If you wish to address a specific person from the Gallery please include the name in your question.

Please note:

EngineerGirl does not provide engineering advice. This forum is intended to allow users to ask questions about engineering careers.
We encourage you to seek the services of a professional engineer for any engineering advice you may require.
