Is It Too Late to be An Engineer?
I have graduated high school and will be getting my bachelor's degree in geography in may 2010. I'm really interested in becoming a civil engineer, but it is too late to change majors. Is it too late to become an engineer? If not, What path you recommend I take? Go back and get another bachelor's degree in engineering? Will it take 4 years again or will some schools accept my previous credits? Or go to a community college for 2 years to take math and science, and then transfer to a 4 year school? Or will some graduate schools accept me without a bach.engineering degree? I'm just somewhat anxious because though I'm good at math, science isn't my strong area (Chemistry :(). And I feel like I'm too late. I will be older than everyone else in my class. But I really want to help improve the environment and the world around me. What do you think? -Melissa
