I never really considered being an engineer until I started going on college tours. I went on a tour for Mathematics Education department and was so bored. A friend told me about his exciting tour through the Electrical and Computer Engineering department, and I never looked back!

Hi Yocelin! I'm so glad you are interested in engineering! Being an engineer does require a lot of math, but more importantly it requires creativity and ingenuity. When you go through engineering school you will have teachers, professors, tutors, and even friends that can help you with any thing that you struggle with, and you will also have counselors that can help you choose the best path to take. There are so many different kinds of engineering, too! I'm an electrical engineer, but there is also computer engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, bio-medical engineering, and more! If you are feeling nervous the best thing to do is get involved. I was involved with a couple of engineering clubs and societies to help give me hands on experience and give me confidence. You can do it, Yocelin! :)
