pff, considering that most of what "scientists" do has no real application in the real world, I'll consider that a compliment.

is it the same where you're from?


we having something similiar here (Slovenia), except that you can got 3 times, the 4th time you have to pay like 40 just to register for the exam and the 5th time time you pay and have to do the exam in front of a committee of professors, fail the 6th time and your kicked off.
Except in practice they just stall it at the 4th time and let you keep going and going until you pass.

I went into Uni thinking I would go into Mechanical Engineering, but a semester of that taught me that it was not what I wanted to do. If you don't like math and a large workload, then DON'T BE AN ENGINEER lol. Now I'm studying history and languages and I like it a lot more.

Not that race really matters, but does anyone at least in the U.S. think that most engineers are Indian and sometimes Asian? Or is it just my school?

Engineering thread, I have a problem.
I think that I want to be an engineer, but I'm only seventeen, so I know not to trust what I think.
What I really want to do is design and build stuff; should I go for an engineering degree or a Bachelor of Science? Marks aren't a problem but there might not be enough money to get both without having to do one entirely on loans.

I started uni as a Software Engineer but i gonna switch to Eletrical Engineering from september, programming is not really my thing while i am kinda into electronics and i still can imagine myself programming microcontrollers as long as there is some other physical stuff involved like building, designing, soldering something etc. I kinda wasted a year but there is a very big overlap between the subjects in the first year so this year was not entirely useless.

Seems like it at times. There's practically nothing but Indian and Asian people in the science and engineering library where I go to school.

I've noticed that too here. I don't wanna sound racist, but I think both Indian and Asia culture has more of a focus on mathematics and the sciences as the "best" careers and push their children in that direction a little more than most US citizens.

Im 2nd year Mechanical, and I really like it so far. A lot of people complain that it is really hard, but if you spend time on it, its not too bad. Going to study at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology this fall, and then Osaka University in the spring, should be a good time!

edit: And to the race breakdown, that is a very accurate description.

I'm doing a computer science degree, which is part of the engineering faculty. However, I want to be a teacher, so won't be an engineer for long.

I'm on my first year of electric engineering at University of Puerto Rico: Mayaguez. So I've seen other electrical engineers and computer which makes me proud really. Can't wait to tackle the main classes of my program rather than setting for Chemistry and the usual math. Bleh. =/

Probably Mechanical or Civil Engineerings. Depends on what your ideas and designs will be about but I'd take up engineering for sure. It can be generalized as a more strict and rougher road but it's so worth it. I've seen a few demos at my campus of various faculties and their PH.D Engineers (its ideology is engineering based for 90% of its programs) and the projects are top notch material.

Designing and building - you would probably have a better bet going with a Mechanical Engineering degree. Or you could even go with like architecture or art and design, depending on what you mean by "design and build." During my semester spent as an engineer, I took a class that taught engineering fundamentals based around a build project, so we actually got to design and build something. But there was also a lot of math and research that went into it, and overall I decided that it wasn't for me. Hope that helps.

Final year undergrad Aerospace Engineer, 6 weeks from the end of the semester. Looking to do a masters next year focusing on propulsion or maybe aerothermodynamics.
