You need a four year BS degree at major universities and a good interview during this or following. Working as a paid or unpaid intern while in college can make the job hunting easier.

After you receive your degree, some states require you to work with a professional engineer for a period of time before you are allowed to take your state's PE exam. For example: In California you must work under a PE for 2 years before being allowed to take the PE exam, but in Nevada it's 4 years.

A mechanical engineer is not a scientist, they just implement the knowledge of the scientist in design. If you want to become a robotics scientist, you will need as much math and physics classes you can take. Focus on mechanics and higher level math classes.

It usually takes about 6 years to become a design engineer. After 4 years of undergraduate classes, 2-3 years of graduate classes are required.

Mechanical Engineering prepares you to be an actual engineer, where you take a test to register as an engineer. You will invent things and be a full engineer. Mechanical Engineering Technology teaches you about mechanical engineering, but you will not get to register as a certified engineer, you would do more fixing things and less inventing things. you get payed less. thats what i can tell you, but im only in high school so that is my understanding of it

firstly to become engineer you will need to take stream of science and Maths at high school and choose type of engineering that you want at take master in the field and phd and you will become chief engineer

I would not worry about high school if I were you. There is nothing you can really do to become a Mechanical Engineer through high school. I would recommend that you stick with your top level maths, take top physics, chemistry, and all the really really 'good' subjects. That way you will get a really great result at the end of the year, know all the fundamentals of physics and maths; and then can take a course at uni in Mechanical Engineering easily.

You will need a firm grasp of physics and mathematics to become an aeronautical engineer.

Typically, a person needs four years of school and experience to become a construction engineer. This varies from state to state, since each state has different licensing mandates.

It depends on the educastional institution you are attending. Some universities or colledges require you to have certain prerequisties before you start the program,

There are several different paths that you can take if you are considering a career in Engineering Technology. You can become a civil engineer and help build roadways or a mechanical engineer and help develop machinery for manufacturing companies. You can even choose a career as an aerospace engineer and help develop airplanes and spacecraft.
