    Engineering interviews are usually very much centred around problem solving. You'll most likely get presented with 2 or 3 problems in succession, of the "here's the physical situation, you sort out how to make something mathematical of it, then solve the maths". Problems are usually designed to be hard/weird/unfamiliar enough that you will need help from and discussion with the interviewers; that's part of the process, so don't worry about it.
