Engineering is an excellent career field to major in because it keeps a person thinking. Through engineering, a person will be contributing to society by designing a better way of life. For example, there are fields of engineering that require specialties in making and designing prosthetic body parts for those who are in need of a specific body part. Also through engineering, a person is contributing to the Kingdom of God by putting others first. The person is trying to help others to live in a more positive environment and life-style. The rate of engineers in the world is miniscule. The world is looking for people to have ideas and plans to help the development of various issues in the world, especially for the environment. Environmental engineers are generally in high demand because of the issues of conserving fuel, new methods of conducting fuel and the use of energy.

Junior year is a perfect year to start visiting colleges that specialize in your major. Also in high school, in order to get into a school of your choice, having a 3.0 or higher will help to get into college. After high school, in order to be successful, I will try to find an engineering job, while in college, that will help give me a better understanding of what it is like to be an engineer.
