High School Student looking for insight regarding engineering!!! Hi, I'm a junior in high school who is looking to focus on some type of engineering. I have researched a lot on the web and at interesting questions on this forum about the different types of engineers and what they do. What most intrigued me was ME which has a wide field of opportunities and careers. Ultimately, my question is: what major would be greatest in salary AND joy related to my interests and hobbies? - My completely avid interests are as follows: Surfing, lacrosse, cars, especially fast and nice cars, boating and boats, watches, hockey, anything having to do with the water, skiing, and anything with an adrenaline rush...haha. If i choose to become a ME what could i pursue that would keep me focused, make the most money, and of course enjoy!!!!??? I have been some type of engineering for designing cars - what type of engineer would be the best? or would industrial design be better? I felt compelled to tell all readers my situation. I am about to be a junior in HS in RI. I am taking about 4 honors classes that include chemistry, english, biotechnology and maybe one more. and reg classes like us history, spanish, and pre-calculus. Next year i will be taking honors physics and calculus. I am a very hard working student and i work towards what i want. I always apply myself and look to learn more and more everyday. I am the person to take initiative and feel as though i am always a leader. I am also an outgoing and humorous person who knows how to get what I want. The only thing i have a hard time doing is focusing in class if the topic is confusing and uninteresting. ANY INSIGHT WITH MY FUTURE OR DECISION MAKING REGARDING COLLEGE OR ANYTHING IS MUCH APPRECIATED!!! thankyou.
