Question:
I am a high school sophomore very interested in a career in engineering, that uses math skills.



Replies:
Engineering is so broad, and mathematics is such a basic tool that one could find a career in just about any part of engineering that would involve mathematics. You could develop particular skills that would be used by engineers in several fields - computer programs that solve equations of a basic type that people often run into, for example. You could also decide that you like a particular type of engineering, electrical or chemical for example, and pursue a career involving mathematical applications within that field. So the first decision seems to be whether you want to emphasize the math or the field of application.
