Okay, I hope I'm not bothering, but I just need some help, I'm a 16 years old guy from Egypt, I love Engineering and I've learned the Autodesk Inventor in 2011 (I was only 13), anyway, I need to boost my abilities to be able to be an mechanical engineer, I'm still in high school, but I'm willing and able to learn anything to qualify me as an mechanical engineer, you know the basics, I'm good at maths, physics and mechanics of course, but I need something like a "syllabus" just to know where to start, courses, liscences anything that could help me, I'm going to be grateful if you can help.

Check out a university course list for mechanical engineering. That'll give you an idea of what you're going to be in for.

However, since it seems you have some practical experience with CAD and maybe drafting, my advice would be to try to get hired on at an engineering company. I started working at an aerospace composites company at 17 doing some designing/drafting and some software programming. Smaller companies will like to hire someone with some practical skill but not have to pay them an engineer's salary. Practical work experience is great to have after you finish your degree, and as a bonus you can see how the classes you're taking actually apply in the real world (something school doesn't give you enough of).
