Engineering, Computers, and Math
You enjoy solving technical problems and are good at science and math. When you were young, you might have gotten in trouble for taking everything apart to see how it works, or maybe you got excited about the electric shock you got when you touched your tongue to a battery. You want to influence the world with creative yet practical technology— the more adventurous and cutting-edge, the better. The opportunities are endless... you can work in the fields of energy, information techology, biomedical, or aerospace, just to name a few.
