Which degree and pathway is right for you? To help, we have put together a simple quiz that allows you to compare and contrast these degrees.

When I open the hood of an automobile, I wonder:

  1. How do the different parts of the engine work together and why?  How is the power transferred to the drivetrain?  I have a few ideas on redesigning this system.
  2. How is this engine put together?  How are engines tested and what equipment is needed? I would enjoy testing the performance of this engine.
  3. I wouldn’t have interest in either of these choices.
