Thank you all. I am pushing him to do a summer program.With the first choice being one that explores the different types of engineering. He has been one who is reluctant to leave home for long. He was the child that we joked would be living with us when were 80. So his desire to go away to school is shocking to us and has left us unprepared.
A problem I am finding is that many of the smaller Ca private schools and smaller Cal States do not offer engineering. My thinking is he would be most interested in Civil Engineering. When we visited Tufts with his sister the person who spoke talked about designing a bicycle. Son has been a mountain biker for years and loves to take apart and rebuild bikes.
Robyn I will look into those Tech schools in the west. I am hoping I can also come up with some other major ideas for him to explore. I would love for him to go to a smaller school. Unfortunately finding any major that would suit him at a liberal arts college will probably not be easy. I would like a place with small classes since the ADD will be an issue.
