Future study and careers

You could study engineering. There are different kinds of engineers -- electrical, civil, mechanical and biosystems engineering, to name a few.

You could study design products, clothing, landscapes, building interiors and more.

If it wasn't designed by mother nature, it was probably designed by a designer or an engineer. They dream up and make possible most objects we use in modern life.
