    Hello! I am going to be a high school senior this year and the pressure of deciding on a college major has really pushed me to research different engineering careers.

How long should I go to college for this occupation, and do I need a licence? If I do become an engineer, what would my weekly and daily work schedule look like? I am a very family ...

    You can definitely have a great family life while being an engineer. You're young now and there is plenty of time to change your mind about which specific field to go in to; for now focus on taking math and science courses that you enjoy. I took ...

    I love that this question is from a Southern girl, like me! Every engineer encounters diversity in the workplace and its a good thing if you can embrace it. Engineers come from all over the world and each one has been trained managed a little bit ...
