I'm actually most of the way through Mechanical Engineering already. Engineering really isn't that bad as long as you stay on top of your homework/read ahead in the textbook. Though you will get the occasional professor that's a pompous know it all.

Electrical Engineering. I can assure you other people in comments are right. Your teachers will more often than not be assholes more focused on weeding kids out than trying to teach them. Who knows maybe it's just the school I go to but goddamn if I don't put **** tons of time into my work for just Bs and Cs at best.

holy **** I fear the future

OP here. same.

This is going to be my first year, you?
User avatar #113 to #104 - tankthejackal ONLINE (07/02/2013) [-]
a year behind you
going to be a senior at a voc tech high school
User avatar #114 to #113 - tacobadger (07/02/2013) [-]
Moving out and going to the University of Central Florida in 1 month. Where do you plan on going?
User avatar #115 to #114 - tankthejackal ONLINE (07/02/2013) [-]
probably something small like ITT tech, then getting a job in the field, then maybe MIT
best part is that it's not that long of a drive to either, and ITT tecc is an easy school to get into

Can somebody give me the template for this?

I have a 4 hour chemistry lab at 8 in the morning.

Alright, serious question. I've heard that Chemical Engineering is a **** hard degree and basically you struggle to have a social life if you study it at university. I'm considering doing it next year, but can someone tell me, how hard is it? and be honest. Because although I'm relatively good at maths, I'm not really sure if I enjoy it.

I don't think it's the math that makes ChemE hard. It's the **** ton of high level chemistry courses.
#93 to #86 - junglebook (07/01/2013) [-]
But from what I've heard and read there's very little chemistry involved, like 20% is chemistry and the rest if maths and physics?
#97 to #93 - anon (07/01/2013) [-]
It's mostly plant design for processes. Chemical engineers end up being more like managers, designing the overall idea and then designating to the mechanical/civil/electrical teams.

Very lucrative tbh but not as hands on.

I know I've heard that also. I'm deciding between that and Chemistry. I enjoy chemistry a lot but I have heard that the employment prospects are very poor after graduation, whereas with chemical engineering it is almost a guaranteed job.

If you go with chemistry you'll most likely end up staying in Academia.
Chemical engineering opens up a lot more prospects, including the standard engineering soul-sell of going into banking on a huuuuuge salary
#101 to #99 - junglebook (07/01/2013) [-]
Oh the choices. Do I go for the money, or for what I truly enjoy doing?

Chemical engineering...
The feels man.

Just finished 2nd year Engineering Science at Oxford. The first year is tough because it's such a step up from school but 2nd year is hell. Thankfully the worst is now behind as we get to choose our specialties now. Goodbye electronics, hello fluid mechanics and thermo!

I'm going to the Navy's Nuclear Power School in February... I may not live.

I'm doing mental health nursing in September...
Not as hard as engineering but still pretty tough I guess.

As an on-and-off mental health patient who has met dozens of mental health nurses and doctors, and close to if not a hundred student nurses, I can say that it'll be taxing on your own mental health to say the least.
But all in all, I wish you the best.

Sad truth, comp engineering here :/

BME/Pre-med at Duke here. It's hard. Interesting stuff, but hard. I'm on campus taking summer classes now because it was that or take multi, orgo, BME 242, physics 152, and ECE 110 all at once. It'll be worth it though in the long run; the demand is incredibly high for all type of engineers in the job market.

i finished my second year in engineering waiting for my results in two weeks
