I really like science and engineering, most people I tell what I am doing think it is interesting. For me it is really great to discover something new, to find out how things work and to make my own little contribution to progress.
Yet there are still few girls in engineering. I would really like to have a partner who is doing something similar to me. I really enjoy having conversations on the same intellectual level. I also like travelling, I lived abroad for 2 years and I am fluent in 3 languages. I would just like to date a girl on the same level, but if I look around with these criteria I see that there are a lot more guys than girls who would fit in as a partner. Supposing girls and guys are equally gifted, why do girls still not achieve the same as guys do?
Most Helpful Girl
One reason is most Engineering Disciplines are a "Boys Club" and they like it that way. I'm a second year engineering major, will be transferring to state university next fall after I earn my Associates in Engineering. (Most people who graduate with an Associates go on to work as Engineering Tech's.). I've had to almost fight my way through my Engineering classes even some of the teachers don't encourage girls as much as they do guys. I accel at math and sciences, have an analytical, visual mind (a lot of girls don't visualize) so I can see and solve problems. I want to be a Civil Engineer when I grow up, with a minor in Mechanical Engineering so I can work on Bridges and Structures. Currently by Test Scores and Grades, I am ranked second in my class, behind one (poor geeky) guy who must eat and sleep engineering, seriously he's like some sort of savant or something.0
