Will mechanical engineering satisfy my curiosity of learning?
I am a student. I am very much concerned about my career path after my completion of high school. I have always been interested in physics, research works and designs. I have given top priority to my curiosity. Hence my best subject is physics. So, I just want to ask you if choosing mechanical engineering as a career path will satisfy my curiosity of learning new things?

    Hi Lucky,

    A curiosity and desire to learn new things is a hallmark of a good engineer, and you will always be learning in any engineering field.  If your interest in physics stems from liking the pure theory involved and understanding the deeper workings of nature then you may just want to study physics.  If you want to figure out how to take the laws of physics and apply them to everyday problems and objects and to create things that will be useful to people, then engineering is a great way to go!
