* You need math. My dad once told me when I was in HS "Learn triangles, those are the basis of everything else" (he got a major on Math) I didn't believe him. But I can tell you many things come from those triangles (vectors for example) and simple math (add, divide, multiply, etc) just that formulas are a little bit... More

None. How do you expect to prove what you are thinking is correct to those not inside your head. You could become an inventor. You just have to build everything yourself before you sell it. That is about the only way to let others work out the math while you just do. How good are you?

Well an engineer has to be excellent in math there is no such thing as being an engineer and no math envolved . You just need to practice more on your math skills just to improve you know. DOnt give up if you want to do it just work on it .

Most all of them. I've worked for 4 fortune 50 companies and every single one of them has used most engineers like dogs to do low level managerial crap paperwork. And when the cuts come, you're the first to go. I gradutated national honor society and deans list and got a teaching assistantship for grad school... More

edward has a good point. Most engineers I've known weren't the sharpest tack in the box. That's why every engineering school as far as I know has "engineering math'' classes, and the math dept has the 'real' math classes. The diff is in the proofs. The math major needs to understand the math and the proof, the... More
