Essay for 2011 Summer Transportation Institute
Some of the career objectives that I have set up for myself are very unstable and unclear right now because I still want to be able to experience a little bit more of life to see if something will change my mind.

The two fields I find most interesting are Civil and Aerospace engineering. That is why I did the V.E.S.T.E.D Academy at Cal State L.A, yes it did interest me more in the field of engineering because most of the things we did was hands on labs but it still left me questioning what field would be the best.
I am interested in the field of Transportation because it ties in with Civil Engineering because it acts as a sub division. It interested me because it is based or centered on the transport systems like civil engineering is based upon the design and structure of many buildings, bridges, roads, and canals. I felt since I am interested in Civil engineering it would be interesting to find out more about the field of Transportation just because it is focused on the operation, design, and the planning of transport facilities in order to make the movement of people easier. I am not that sure of this field of engineering but who knows I might end up liking it more than Civil and Aerospace that I might decide to pursue just Transportation or I might decide to do both Transportation and Civil Engineering. My interest in this Summer Transportation Institute is very immense just because we will be exploring many things that can help me out in the future. It will allow me to explore what it would be like to have a career in transportation and if it might be something I want to pursue in life, the SAT preparation courses for college would also be a benefit just because some of us do not prep the correct way or do not even prep at all for a big exam like...
