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.
