College and Career
2nd period English 1
Carlos Estrada

The University I Chose is Iowa State University and I chose it because it is a good place to go to for engineering which interests me. Iowa State University is pretty well known for having great engineering programs as well as a few other programs that can help a lot. Other than this school having an outstanding engineering program it is also an overall great college and its location looks absolutely amazing. The college was officially established on March 22, 1858. Although the college started out being a strictly agricultural college, it eventually offered engineering, home economics and more. The first official class the entered did so in 1869 and the first class graduated in 1872. The college was originally named Iowa Agricultural college and Model Farm, but later in 1959 it was officially changed to Iowa state University of Science and technology.

My Career Path

I have thought about it so much and I have decided that engineering is probably the best career for me and there are multiple reasons why. First off ever since I joined an engineering class I have loved it and it is fun. I am an amazingly curious person and when comes to things that relate to stuff I like then I become very interested in learning about it such as how it's made. With an engineering job you can work with things that will tie into any of your favorite things, for example I love cars so I can possibly use my engineering to design cars. Other than how this can relate to my passions the main reason you need a job is simply to make money to survive. In mostly all engineering type jobs the pay is usually high. There is a very nice variation in jobs for engineering such as electrical, environmental, electronic, and many more. I do wish to eventually make the money that is typically the highest in engineering so around $100,000 a year would be something I'm searching for and if I can I will go further to earn more. It would be nice to work for any major companies because it will lead to better opportunities and better pay. Overall engineering is a career that really appeals to me as well as pays a great amount thus the reason why I want to become an engineer.

Engineering Description

For the description of engineering since there are many types I am going to use electronics engineering. the tasks are overall pretty simple of designing the electronics, determining coat and distribution of the product, and sometimes they'll even install and/or repair them. The annual pay per year averages at $81,000 a year but ranges from $57,000 to $130,000.
