How you get there depends a lot upon where you are now. If you are in middle school then this would be a great time to start looking into engineering clubs and after-school and summer programs. Make sure you take a full range of college prep courses in high school and start looking into colleges that offer a chemical engineering degree. You can also check out the "How to Get There" section of EngineerGirl to get some ideas and pointers. Enjoy the journey!
The 2017 EngineerGirl Essay Contest is now open! Students (both boys and girls) in grades 3-12 can submit an essay with their engineering ideas for helping vulnerable and endangered animals.
