Mom doesn't want me to be a mechanical engineer
I am majoring in mechanical engineering and my mum insists that I switch majors, she keeps telling me that I won't be able to work and this is a dead end. I keep telling her that this is what I like but she won't listen. What to do?

    Hi Sash,

    Maybe try having your mom look at all the successful women working in mechanical engineering in our Directory of Women Engineers.  There are so many opportunities.  I could be that she is just mis-informed and needs to see that there really are things out there that you could be working on.
