So I am a high school freshman student this school year. We have this career guidance presentation every once in a while by our counselors. I wanted to be an engineer but I realized something. I don’t know which engineer I’d want to persue. I’ve limited it down to two. Mechatronics or Mechanical? I honestly have no idea what each of them specifically does. Also, I’d like to stay in Hawaii for college. So I don’t have to worry my parents with costs (and I don’t want to totally depend on scholarships to cover EVERYTHING), I won’t get home sick, and I won’t have to worry too much about choosing a specific college throughout the mainland. That kind of limits my engineering choices but I’d like to ask for what an mechatronics engineer and a mechanical engineer does. I’ve tried searching it up. I get even more confused. I’d like to compare the two careers to try to make up my mind so I know what courses I need to take. Also if I need to look into other colleges for this. It would help to know that I have a college and career plan for now that may change throughout my high school years. I appreciate any answers or advice to my question!
