    Go to the Naval Academy in Annapolis. No mountains, lots of water, etc..... Plenty of options when you get out with the five year commitment - if he is way into engineering go split atoms and run a nuclear plant on a submarine or aircraft carrier, be a Marine, regular ships, fly planes (longer commitment). Only five years - get great hands-on experience. They have quite good engineering there.

    i did the week long preview session back in the day when looking at schools
    my takeaway was you can do tons of different things at the Academy but you would graduate with two majors: leadership & engineering

    cool place & tenure track for interesting jobs, but you need to be a good fit because the Navy has specific needs & they don't really make many exceptions

    Men are abandoning higher education in such numbers that they now trail female college students by record levels.

    At the close of the 2020-21 academic year, women made up 59.5% of college students, an all-time high, and men 40.5%, according to enrollment data from the National Student Clearinghouse, a nonprofit research group. U.S. colleges and universities had 1.5 million fewer students compared with five years ago, and men accounted for 71% of the decline.
    so there are only two genders in college? interesting
