    Hey (:, I was just curious on if & how did you get your foot in the door as far being an aerospace engineering, meaning did you do everything on your own, network, internships? Because right now im trying to pursue working for NASA since not a lot of women are known to be working in this field. Im a junior now, & I just turned 17 but I just want to get any leadway I possibly can right now. Thank You So Much.

    In the jet engine industry you could become a FADEC designer (full authority digital engine control).  The FADEC is the brain of the engine and it has to be redundant and perfect to keep people safe in the air.

    I used to work on jet engines.  It was fun, but very hard.  You have to make sure it is super safe so it can fly in the air.  I used to work in a large engineering building with 10000 people.

    Hi, I'm 20 years old, and I've already graduated from college--in a very non-engineering related field. Because I wanted to study religion and theology in my first few years out of high school, I currently hold a BA in Liberal Arts. I am now employed as a teacher in my hometown (the school I went through), and I teach middle school English and Biology as well as a high school math. As you can see, my interests and skills are very diverse, but my passion is math. Until recently I had decided to ...

    Hi Adina!
    
    It sounds like you have many talents!  It’s great to be so versatile – it makes for a great engineer as well as a great mom!
    
    Most of these questions could be best answered by a college counselor.  They are trained to help you find the ...

    Hello :), thank you for sharing your story and being so open about sharing your stay-at-home experience. You have a beautiful family. I am now a first time mom. I graduated with my B.S. in mechanical engineering in 2009 from UCSD and worked in the aerospace field as a design engineer for a little over 3 years. I then decided to go back to school full-time for 2 years to obtain my M.S. in mechanical engineering at UCLA and just graduated in June. My husband is also an engineer (computer ...

    Hi! I am currently studying chemical engineering, but I am also interested in mechanical engineering, so I am taking classes for both majors. Unfortunately my university doesn't allow engineering students to double major in another engineering discipline. With my background could I still possibly go to graduate school for aerospace engineering or get a job in an aerospace engineering company? :) Thank you!

    Hello Mrs. Glauser, my name is Angela. I am a current student in high school and was wondering if you could answer a few interview questions to help with a project I am working on. The topic of my project is why there aren't many women interested in the engineering field, and your experience will help me to gain a strong source. I would really like more girls to see the benefits of this career choice. If you have a moment of your time to spare, I ask if you'd be so kind to answer my questions ...

    Dear Mrs. Glauser, I sent you an email just before---I'm not sure if it got through so I'm sending it again. But I just found the site engineergirl.org today and I was really interested in your profile because you're an aerospace engineer! I'm 20 years old. I'm a girl, and I'm two years in becoming a mechanical engineer. But I have so many questions! Mainly because sometimes I wonder if I'm choosing the right field for me.
