    I'm currently an engineering student in New Zealand (studying Engineering Science- made up mainly of math, programming, optimisation and finance papers, and a number of electives from other fields). After being an intern in heavy engineering (Steel Mill) over the past few months this summer, I definitely feel that a career in heavy engineering is just not for me. What other areas would my engineering degree help me to break into? (e.g. a lot of people go into things like investment banking ...

    I love math and science but I am still wondering if engineering is the right choice for me, because I did a wood working class in middle school, and drafting portion had to be the part that I least enjoyed. If drafting and designing is a big chunk of engineering, this may not be what I should go into.. If you can let me know if there is an aspect of engineering that doesn't involve drawing/drafting/coming up with creative and innovative designs for miraculous bridges and roads, that would be ...

    Dear Ally,

    You ask a great question about what engineers really do, in school and on the job. The fact is that most engineers do not spend their time drawing and drafting - but that all engineers spend time coming up with innovative ideas to solve all ...

    My name is An'Tenesha and I'm a Freshman at Auburn University majoring in Chemical Engineering. I'm thinking about changing to industrial because of the stories I have heard about this major when dealing with cosmetics. I want to not only create cosmetic products but have my own cosmetic line. I was wondering if I should switch to industrial or stick with chemical?
