What kind of Engineering?


I am currently a high school junior looking around at possible majors/careers for the future. My dad is very determined for me to major in something where there are promising jobs, which makes engineering one of my options! I'm good enough in math and science, but prefer to stay away from stuff like chemistry or physics. I enjoy geometry, simple algebra, biology and environmental studies so what kind of engineer would that make me?

Thank you!

Many engineering programs require some basic physics and chemistry classes, at least at the freshman level. 

As for types of engineering that involve biology and environmental sciences, the ones that come to mind are: environmental engineering, biological engineering and biomedical engineering.
