I'm currently a 10th Grader at my high school, My name is Anonymous Student and I've got an assignment I have to complete for my principles of engineering class for the PLTW (Project lead the way) Program. I consider myself very proficient at theoretical math, but I do have some trouble when it comes to applying it to real life, thus making these classes very challenging at times. I've been looking a lot in the engineering field and airplanes absolutely fascinate my entire family has been in the Air Force and I think it would wonderful if I became an Aerospace Engineer. I've got some questions to ask if you could answer that would be fantastic. First off these are general questions and nothing too personal, if you would like to state your name and were you currently work that would certainly be helpful. Questions • Where did you go to college? • What degree(s) do you have? • What field of engineering do you work in? • What are some specific jobs in this field? • What is your specialty in this field of engineering? • Describe the duties and responsibilities of someone working in this field of engineering. • What are the advantages of this occupation? • What are the disadvantages? • Do most people work for themselves, private industry or the government? • Are there advancement opportunities? • How much of your time is spent on the computer? • Does your job deal mainly with people, data or things? • Did your degree prepare you for the work you are doing now? • Is it possible to work at home (like if you’re sick)? • Are there many women who work in your workplace? In this field of engineering? • What is the beginning, average, and top salary one could expect to earn working in Aerospace engineering? • How many hours do you work per week? • Is this what you thought you were going to do in high school? Thank you for taking the time to read this and answer. Once again if you find any of these questions too personal please do not answer them.
