Actually, qualities required for an engineer or a good pilot or Vulcan, show no emotion, be in charge of your environment, and master of your domain. lol is so hard to say.

Not always for a pilot, you can be a mechanical pilot, or an instinct pilot.

Nope. Actually it's only like an hour away. It's just that my car would not make a daily trip up there. I sometimes question if it will make the 10 minute trip to work.

I'm a bit older than most people going into college, as I'll be 22 in July. I've been in Community college for 4 years now, with a nearly completed Computer Networking degree and half a culinary arts degree. Ive learned to show up for class. I understand exactly where you are coming from whenever you say that. Too many times have I seen people start missing classes, and then be completely lost (one guy I had class with came on the day of the mid-term, and didn't realize there was a test). And thanks for the congrats. I've been wanting this since high school, just fate and circumstances have never allowed me to pursue it until now.

Congrats, were you thinking of "cooking circuits"? Mechanical Engineering is a tough course. Be prepared for a lot of theoretical work. They don't teach you to change the oil in the car but can sure tell you why you need it, how to calculate what weight oil to use, what happens when it runs out, and how much better the engine will perform. The math will be a little crazy but if you can visualize concepts and hang in there, you will survive. Good luck.

Ha, and no. Not thinking of cooking circuits. While I was able to do Networking with no problem, and even had a very nice job lined up after graduation, I just didn't want to do that. The culinary is because I have always enjoyed cooking, and I am still considering finishing the degree on top of the engineering. Of course that would come after I get done with the engineering degree. Of course that means I have to certify in sanitation again...

Thanks. Yeah, it's the stuff like that that has always interested me. I could learn how to do something, but I want to know why you do something, and what makes it work like it does.
