    I just feel like I am not "smart" enough to be successful in that field sometimes. Reason being is because it is such broad field.

    Hi, I am tied between some careers including industrial design and mechanical engineering. I am pretty right/left brain balanced so I love sciences/logic and the arts/creativity almost equally. I don't really like math (I did until it stopped making sense. I'm willing to persevere through math classes in college, though i'm not sure if i want calculus or higher to be a part of my everyday job) and i'm not a fan of physics. However I love inventing and building things and understanding how ...

    No need to live in a big city to be an engineer, because all places either big or small cities need to have engineers, and we as women can work in all engineering fields. Good luck :)

    Hello. My name is Lynn and I am a Freshman studying Mechanical Engineering. I currently attend a two Honors College program in Miami. In the future, I am interested in working in the waste to energy industry. My long term goal is to open my plant one day. Will a Mechanical degree be the right path for my aspiration or will I have to get a degree in electrical if I want to work in Energy? Also, how were you able to get the internship with Disney? What are your suggestions for someone who aspire ...
