Message No. 7834, Started by monkeybrains on 09/08/01
i am in student in my sophmore year in college and wanting to go into mechanical engineering, but i need some direction.  For anybody out there, what interested you about the field and how can i find out more about it.  With all of the hard work involved i want to try and find a way to make sure it's going to be worth it.  I only have so much money i can spend on school, i dont think i could afford to go back to major in something else if this didnt pan out.  any input would be highly appreciated and respected.   thanx
