Submit an answer Patience, Glasgow AddedThursday, November 8, 2012 at 10:23 AM Working well in a team Hi, I'm a first year doing computer science and mechanical engineering as a minor. I enjoy working with others, but I'm doing a group project where I am the only girl, and anything I contribute for the project they are not taking it seriously. I am getting discouraged that maybe I made a wrong decision doing this subject. Is there any advice you can give me? Thank you.

It sounds like that was a bad expxerience with that project group. But this is not always the case. Personally, I've had mostly positive experiences working in engineering teams. I hope that situation worked out for you. But in the future, if something like that happens, perhaps you could bring it up with your teammates or your professor.
