    I've worked in the engineering field as a drafter for the last 7 years. I've drafted air crafts, military boats, top tear restaurants and telecommunications towers. Currently I'm working toward my engineering degree, however I'm becoming reluctant to finish my degree due to the constant harassment I've face in my previous jobs. Every job I've had, I've experienced some form of sexual harassment, such as grabbing and other various forms of harassment. Most of these jobs provided a sexual ...

    Through studying some questions already posted and answered I've decided the best course for me is to get a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering and then a Masters in Aerospace Engineering. My question is, is it possible to achieve a bursary to study my Masters in America so that I may perform a co-op through NASA and possibly be employed by them? My financial status limits me from much choice.

    You will need to be an American citizen to get a position (student internship, co-op or permanent) with NASA. 

    Best,

    Dear Sanjana,
    You probably have a much better idea of the resources in Bangladesh than we do, since this program is based in the USA.  However, I would encourage you not to give up too soon.  If there is a professional society for chemical ...
