16. My husband is a mechanical engineering manager, he loved math and science
as a child and he really loves his current job. If she likes to take things apart and see how they work and then put them back together again then maybe she should look into mechanical. Mr brother in law is a structural engineer, mostly road and bridge jobs and my Dad is an electrical engineer by degree, again he loved taking things apart and putting them back together.
