Should I do mechanical engineering?

  1. Apr 26, 2015 #1
    Hello I have recently applied for college and I put down mechanical engineering as my number 1. I ament that good at maths in fact I struggle with it, but I am very good at solid works and I love working with metals. I still don't know if mechanical engineering is mainly designing or if there is any practical side to it because I would rather the practical side! Could anyone help?

    I think you will enjoy Mech Engineering. It is very practical although some of things you learn may never be used in your profession but still you will have had exposure to them and that is a good thing.

    Keep working on your math it's definitely an important aspect to being good at Mech Engineering.
