As a geeky granny (i.e. been there done that) let me challenge you a bit.
Why do you dream about engineering: the maths? the achievements? working in the field? the computer work? going to rough places? the mental exercise? the boys-club environment? the leading of teams and projects? the touch of freshly-mixed concrete? the corner office in downtown Toronto? the paycheck?
Find more about what attracts you to this activity, and you might even discover new possibilities!
BTW, I trained as an architect but moved my career into a kind of environmental troubleshooter in very large infrastructure projects (hydropower dams, airports, industrial plants, energy systems, roads, regional developments, etc.). Travelled the world, roughed a few, loved it!
