Hey guys! I'm currently a senior in high school who will be moving onto college next year. I've always had a strong point in math, it's something I want to continue studying. In high school I didn't really push myself to the limit so I haven't studied Physics yet. I'm currently in Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry. Thinking about my future and the possibility of going into the wrong field cause my a lot of stress. I want to make sure what I study will be meaningful. Of course my goal is to get a well paying job, but I really want to make an impact and help develop technologies for human advancement. After talking to a counselor at the college I will be attending next year, she made Mechanical Engineering & Business Administration degrees sound really good. However, does an Engineer typically go after a Business degree? Would those two degrees even go together? Would these two degrees open up a lot of options for me in life? Could I make more money with these two degrees? I've read a few topics and a lot of the members on here study math, and just math. I really want to get deep into math and have a career based on that. I'm thinking that studying business would not allow me to study math deeply, as my focus would change primarily to Business after getting my bachelors in Engineering. What do you guys think about this? Also, I'm not entirely sure on which discipline of Engineering I want to study. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Astronomy (I wouldn't want to base my career on Astronomy this early in my life however for several reasons) and was thinking about Aeronautical Engineering. I've heard that Aeronautical Engineering doesn't have as many job opportunities and it's extremely competitive, especially for NASA. I know there are several types of engineering disciplines, but I want to study something that would advance the human race, so things like Petroleum Engineering are out of the question. Mechanical Engineering sounds really interesting to me as well. Which type of Engineers would the economy need most in 10 years? How/When did you guys find out which discipline of engineering you wanted to focus on? Should I focus just on engineering, or get a degree in engineering and business administration? Which do you guys think would yield better results in the long run? Thanks for all the help. I'd appreciate it if you guys would give me some guidance and answer most/all of the questions I've asked. I'm a kid who gets little to no guidance at home, I've pretty much put myself on the path to success by myself, no parents or other people to guide me.
