Hi, I am seriously considering making a move towards becoming an engineer. I have a History degree from UC Berkeley and a certificate degree in Advanced Character Animation. Money is not and issue and I have all the free time in the world. I am 28 years old and am in excellent physical health. I'm completely rusty in the math and sciences, but I feel like my cognitive functions are sharper than they've ever been due to changes I've made in my diet and sleeping habits. Where do I even begin?? What is the most efficient way to pursue this path? I have been looking into the free lectures at MIT, but there are so many classes to choose from. Thanks! (The following is just my argument for why I think I'm suitable for engineering and should only be read at your leisure. Feel free to ignore) Since the questions will inevitably arise, I do believe that I have a natural aptitude for the engineering field. I grew up making my own toys with functioning parts and drawing my own elaborate designs and rube-goldberg machines. I have scored in the 99% percentile for math in all aptitude tests I've taken in grade school, as well as placing in the GATE program, I also excelled in my math and physics classes in highschool. Despite my absolute love of physics, I did not pursue engineering or physics in college because I had the absurd notion in my head that I should "strengthen" my weakness, so I pursued Molecular Cell Biology which I terrible at and ended up getting my Bachelor's in History just so I could hurry up and get out of college. Also, and I don't know if this should factor, but my father is a well accomplished Mechanical Engineer, earning his PhD from Tokyo University, which was unheard of at the time for a non-Japanese. He went on to work in high ranking positions including as COO in two of the largest manufacturers in the world. So if I inherited even a fraction of his brain, I'm in pretty good shape... my mother also had a PhD but it was in Philosophy, which probably explains my poor decision making ;).
