How do I find a support network in engineering?

I have a group of friends in a lot of the same classes I’m in now and I’ve found having that support and camaraderie really helpful. I'm concerned about moving on to college and a career where I may not have that kind of group. Do engineers usually work in teams or by themselves? Were you able to find a group to work with in college or at your job? What are some ways I can find a similar support network in college or when I get a job as an engineer?

Here you can ask those questions you still have about engineering careers. Read profiles of practicing engineers in the I'm An Engineer section and ask someone a question directly, or submit a question here to have EngineerGirl staff try to find the right person to answer you.

We cannot give you actual engineering advice. If you need help designing that booster rocket for your own spacecraft or other project, you may find a resource on this list of other Engineering Q&A sites, and we encourage you to seek the services of a professional engineer for any engineering services you may require.
