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!



Engineering will be a fun and fufilling job i believe.
I want to be someone who leads people to new innovative idea's and ways of life. I want to change the way things work around us to be for efective, efficient, and more powerful then ever and to say the least other jobs will get boring where as this one will continue to change as we change it.
Also it opens doors to my future after post secondairy education.
