I am also a woman engineer at the University of Akron and I see the same thing with my classes!

This is hard for me to read. I was not encouraged into any math or engineering fields so I’m screaming to myself … how can you take advantage young ladies?

But also having been a young lady once myself, I understand how appealing the arts are. It’s more fun to express yourself with paint and creative writing. So I shouldn’t be so judgemental.

Since I have learned how to program — I realize there is creative problem solving involved with “engineering” jobs. I don’t think it gets positioned that way.
