To meet the standards set by most engineering colleges, high
school students should take as much math and science as possible.
Minimum course work includes elementary and intermediate algebra,
plane geometry, trigonometry, chemistry, and physics. Courses in
solid geometry, advanced algebra, and basic computer functions are
highly recommended. In addition, many engineering colleges require
three years of English (preferably emphasizing composition and
public speaking) and social science (especially economics and
history). Course work in foreign languages also is helpful, because
many engineers work overseas.
