If you are interested in becoming a professional engineer, you
must begin preparing yourself in high school. You should take
honors-level courses in mathematics and the sciences. Specifically,
you should complete courses in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and
calculus, chemistry, physics, and biology. Take English, social
studies, and a foreign language (many published technical papers
that are required reading in later years are written in German or
French). Be sure to keep your computer skills up to date by taking
computer science classes.
