    Hi there, I'm in my first year of studying a petroleum and mechanical engineering degree in the UK, your answers to to other questions really are incredibly motivating and reassure me what a great degree engineering is. Do you have any suggestions on how to get some experience over summer, work shadowing (as you stated), a placement, perhaps even a group project for students? Thanks a lot Sophie

    An ability to understand the curriculum and apply it to real world problems is far more important than good grades. If one make's all A's due to cheating, than obviously the grades mean nothing. On the other hand, one who works through college and ...

    Once you become a civil engineer, do you have time to be a normal wife and mother? In forums I have noticed some engineers discussing how long hours keep them from important family life. Is this in issue in any of your circumstances? Thank you in advance!! :)

    Well first of all it is important to think ahead and decided what a "normal wife and mother" means to YOU. There are many women engineers who I am sure work long hours with plenty of overtime, but I would think that most work average full-time hours. I ...

    Hello. I am a 34 year old nurse. I have decided to change careers. I want to be an engineer. I know that I would love Bio-medical, but I am really looking to get out of medicine. I would like some advice. First, Is being a older a female going to be a challenge for me as an entry level engineer? Are there any women here whom have turned to engineering later in life? Second, I am a mother so my commute to school is a major factor in deciding what sub-specialty to choose and what universities ...
