    Can you describe your engineering field? What are your duties in your job? How much do you typically work during the week? What type of education have you had? What advice would you give to me as someone interested in pursuing a career path similar to yours?

    Hello, I am interested in becoming a Automotive Engineer (Mechanical). Is there any way that you could give my advice or be my mentor? I'm not really good at math; just average. But I am practicing. I'm a Junior in high school, but im home schooled. What subjects would most benefit me or what type of camps, organizations, or classes could I take?

    Hi Neha, I have currently finished high school and I'm an aspiring aeronautical engineer. However, I have been advised that it would be a safer and better option to take up mechanical engineer (which is something I like) and then pursue my masters in aeronautics, as scope for women in India in the field of aeronautics is pretty bleak. But as dates for admission into colleges approaches, my parents have been pretty hell bent on me taking electrical related fields (I dont really enjoy it as much ...

    Hey. May God bless you. I really aspire to be an Aerospace engineer, but my father thinks that I am not good at Maths because I didn't get good grades. Whereas I got really good grades in Physics and other subjects. I think my math is good and a three hour paper can't judge my maths...lol, Should I go for aerospace engineering because I love it or should I give it up because I didn't get good grades in it in High school?

    Hi Neha, I am done with my FE, and since I didn't really know which branch offers what I took up computer engineering since most of the girls opt for that. But over the last year I realized that I am stronger and more fascinated by the subjects needed for mechanical engineering than for computer engineering. Now I have the chance of changing my branch but my family says Mechanical isn't a branch meant for women and the chances of getting a good job are scarce. They have to struggle a lot to get ...

    Hello, i'm Anusha. I'm 16.I'm currently in high school. My favorite subject is Physics compared to Biology. I've always been passionate about Physics and astronomy and aircrafts so I thought I should just go for Aerospace Engineering once i'm out of school. My dad is an engineer too- mechanical engineer and he wants me to take up medicine. He thinks engineering course is too hard for a girl. He thinks there is less job offers for that field too.I'm so confused. I need some advice on this?

    Hi Anusha,
    
    It is so nice to learn of your interest in physics and astronomy as well as to learn that you aspire to be an aerospace engineer. I am a Mechanical Engineer myself and while some courses I took in school were tough and needed a lot of ...

    I was wondering how easy it is in the engineering field of work. I know it it a field that is mostly dominated my males, and all my life I have been ignored or maybe a better word would be looked past because I am a girl, and I didn't want to get into a profession where it would be hard to find a job because of my gender. I have always helped my dad work in the shop and know how to design things then make them happen so I feel like engineering would be a good fit for me but I want to be taken ...

    Hello Neha, I am currently a senior in high school and I am going through the whole college planning process. I am thinking about majoring in mechanical engineering but I am not sure if I will like it. I am good at math and biology but I didn't really like chemistry. I was ok in physics. Do you need to be really good in physics and chemistry to become a mechanical engineer? It seems like it would be interesting to be an engineer but I'm not sure if I would be good at being a mechanical ...

    Hi Kelly, First of all, it is wonderful that you are thinking of being an engineer. While you need to know that basics of both physics and chemistry to be a mechanical engineer, unless you decide to major in areas such as bio chemistry, optics etc ...
