My goal in life is to be a nuclear engineer. I'm 17, and just got a job at Mc.Donalds. When I turn 18 I'm joining the NAVY to get free colleage and to learn through a classform enviorment the mathematics and enviorment I need to know to be a submarine nuclear engineer. As long as I don't have to recruited to iraq, I'm happy. With the military, you never know. My friend Natalie was a medic in the NAVY, and she got deployed in Iraq. However, before I am a nuclear engineer, I want to go to colleage for game programming, and be a game developer for Nintendo. I want to go to ITT tech and do that. My passion for science and thrist for mathematics is much greater than I want to be a game developer; therefore I'd much rather be a nuclear engineer first. Ok. Now I have a few questions to ask. 1) What math will I have to know? 2) What will the job be like? What will I do? 3) This is unrelated, but, could someone please tell me what an eigenvalue is?
