    I like engineering in general because it involves a lot of problem solving.  In the different disciplines you use different tools to solve problems and come up with solutions. I am drawn to the areas of Mechanical Engineering that use more math, as I ...

    Hello! My name is Zafirah and I am a first year student in a technology institute in France. Currently I've been going through a struggle in choosing what I want to focus on in the future, so I've narrowed my choices down based on my interests. I'm currently taking mechanical engineering and I was wondering are there any majors that I can focus on for my masters if I'm interested in working in the cosmetics industry? Since I'm not taking chemical engineering, is there any possibility for me to ...

    Manufacturing Engineering could fit nicely. It is a subset of Mechanical Engineering.  In terms of cosmetics, they must all be packaged and manufactured - so there are jobs there.  Additionally, there are always new ways to apply cosmetics, new ...

    Hi! I'm currently studying mechanical engineering, but I'm starting to doubt my choice of career. I'm considering to study medicine instead because I have hard time being passionate about machines and robots. However, since I'm only in my first year, the passion might come later on? I'm afraid that without the passion, it will become boring. I think I'm also more of a people-person, and I'm therefore thinking of medicine instead. How was it for you? Were you always sure and have you always had ...

    I passed my 12th standard this year itself and want to pursue a career in engineering. I have a strong inclination towards "mechanical engineering". I want to know, is opting for this particular branch not a good option for girls if other branches like electronics and communication, electrical, or computer engineering are also available? Does the job require high physical strength? Because I feel I can handle mental stress but not physical.

    Dear Isha, Good question. Mechanical engineering will not require any more physical strength than any other field of engineering. While you may end up determining the strength of various materials, it will all be on paper (or on a computer) using ...

    Currently I am a High School Senior, and I took an engineering course for a college. I was working really, really hard,but I still struggled. My question is as follows, do you think that anyone who struggles in an Into to Engineering class should reconsider if that is the major they should aim for?

    That's a great question. And has multiple facets. I would first address why the struggle occurred? What was the basis of the struggle? Was it difficult math? Difficult science? Do you feel you had the knowledge from background classes? I would ...
