Re: What career are you going into?

I'm going to Kettering, planned EE.
I'm Co-Oping with Chrysler, in Powertrain controls. I like working with control system hardware and software, and other low-level software (C mostly, although I do like algorithm programming in LV or Simulink). I don't start until July, but I will be working at the Tech Center, which is also where 33's shop is, and I'll be at work during build season.

That's great!

Re: What career are you going into?

I'm going into mechanical engineering, possibly with a concentration in CAD or manufacturing, at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Definitely looking forward to college. Do we need to have a summer break? Shouldn't it just go "robotics season, one week off, college with machine shops and fun classes"?

"CAD" in itself is just a tool. Striving to be very good at CAD is definitely something mechanical design engineers should all do. However, it is still just one of many tools a mechanical engineer will need to master to become proficient.

At the end of the day, engineering is all about problem solving. As an engineering student you should constantly work to improve your problem solving ability by gaining new skills and knowledge for your own "tool belt".

Oh, agreed. Basically, it would mean that I take all the standard engineering courses, and a couple of extra ones in advanced CAD functions.
