    Hi. You see, when I grow up I want to be an engineer, My grandfather was an engineer. He was a great engineer. He died when I was a three. My Mom told me he loved science and math and that he loved math and science so much he wasn't really really good in english. So all I ask is that, Are the love of Maths and Science are the requirements of engineering? Or is anything else?
