Very intimidated getting into engineering.
I'm starting out at 22. I've been in the military and have had some real world experience. Engineering is something that I've always wanted to do but never thought I was smart enough even though I got fantastic grades in high school. I was usually the smart one in my classes but most of the engineers I have met make me feel inferior. I hear dozens of stories about people weeding out and the attrition rate being of the highest out of all college majors, Normal to feel this way? My grandfather was a software engineer for boeing. He did it for 20 years and he keeps telling me it is all in your head and he knows I have the intelligence for it. I just feel like I have been out of eduction for too long now. I'm ready to give it all I got but I just can't help but think this is a pipe dream.
