Why did you go into structural engineering?
I started out interested in architecture and began junior college with the plan to pursue an architecture degree. However, my first year at junior college I really enjoyed the physics courses and the higher-level mathematics. What tipped the scales for me was when I came across the architectural engineering degree at Cal Poly, SLO. The program was primarily structural engineering with architectural design thrown in. It combined aspects of both the things that interested and challenged me. The Cal Poly ARCE program then led me fully down the path to structural engineering.
