One of the reasons why I chose engineering as my college major is because I am good with numbers. This subject requires individuals to think very quickly and perform multiple additions and subtractions. My expertise in numbers can give me an advantage over the other students. Also, some of my closest peers suggested that I take this major because they see it can be a good fit for me. These people are only trying to help, so it is important that I listen to their advice. Besides, engineering as a major is well-respected in society because of the high importance associated with it. Finally, my father also supports my decisions, and family support will be crucial for me to complete the course.
