Any engineers here in the pit? I have been accepted into engineering next year and I would like to converse with any of you about various aspects of eng. It's a long shot...

No, but it's a potential job prospect for me, so I shall be monitoring this thread.

didn't you know? the pit is actually full of Particle and Mechanical Physicists, I'm sure these guys would love to talk about the aspects of another branch of Physics.


I'm looking at studying Electronic/Electrical Engineering at Uni.

I just changed my major to Electrical Engineering last Friday.
I start taking the pre-reqs next semester... lots of calculus

I do mechanical, what type of engineering do you plan to do? If you plan to do mechanical like me and don't like to draw/design (like me) then I really suggest that you don't do mechanical.


Like to draw and design....Civil or mechanical may be good.

Like chemistry and all that kind of stuff...chemical for you


Like circuits and signals....electrical is for you then.

First year electrical/electronic engineering student. The course has been surprisingly easy so far. I am not an engineer.


3rd Year same course lol, as I've mentioned to you before on many occasions....it gets much worse!

What are you planning on doing?

I was planning on going into Mechanical Engineering, but so far the course has had a large workload and I'm having trouble with the material. I was never the best at math, but I figured I could tough it out in order to get a good paying job. But it's not worth it to me any more; I'd rather just take my chances with some other study (perhaps Literature or a language).

tl;dr
If you don't like math, don't do engineering. Play to your strengths.

potcorn and enceps, basically I'm wondering how the different types of engineering differ and which ones typically have the harder course. Throughout school my best subjects were maths, physics and chem, I'm leaning towards mechanical or chemical but apparently chemical has the toughest course.

Aerospace Engineer reporting in



Although I'm still starting in first year.

Behold, a variation of Godiva's Hymn we learned in our frosh:

"CHORUS:
We are, we are, we are, we are, we are the Engineers
We can, we can, we can, we can demolish forty beers
So come, so come, so come, so come, so come along with us
For we don’t give a damn for any old man who don’t give a damn for us

VERSES:

Godiva was a lady who through Coventry did ride
To show to all the villagers her lovely bare white hide
The most observant man of all, an Engineer of course
Was the only one to notice that Godiva rode a horse

“I’ve come a long, long way,” she said, “and I will go as far”
“With the man who takes me from my horse and leads me to a bar”
The men who took her from her steed and stood her to a beer
Were a bleary-eyed Surveyor and a drunken Engineer!

Venus is a statue made entirely of stone
There is not a fig leaf on her, she’s as naked as a bone
On noticing her arms were broke an Engineer discoursed
“The damn thing’s busted concrete, it should be reinforced!”

A maiden and an Engineer were sitting in a park
The Engineer was busy doing research after dark
His scientific method was a marvel to observe
While his right hand wrote the figures down, his left hand traced the curves

My father was a miner in the northern Malamute
My mother was a mistress in a house of ill repute
They kicked me out at an early age and neither shed a tear
Saying “Get out of here you son of a bitch and join the Engineers!”

The army and the navy boys went out to have some fun
Down to the local tavern where the fiery liquors run
But all they found were empties for the Engineers had come
And traded all their instruments for gallon kegs of rum

An artsie and an Engineer once found a gallon can
Said the artsie, “Match me drink for drink, to prove that you’re a man”
They took three drinks, the artsie fell, his face was turning green
But the Engineer drank on and said, “It’s only gasoline!”

Caesar set out for Egypt at the age of fifty-three
But Cleopatra’s blood was warm, her heart was young and free
And every night when Julius left her house at 3 o’clock
A Roman Engineer waiting just around the block

On reading Kama Sutra, they tried position nine
For proving masculinity it truly was divine
But then one night the girl rebelled and kicked him on his rear
For he was a feeble artsie and she an Engineer

[Ladies' chorus, to be sung directly following the "Kama Sutra" verse]
We are, we are, we are, we are the Female Engineers
We can, we can, we can, we can drink twice as many beers
Bring men, bring men, bring men, bring men, and come along with us
Cause we don’t give a **** for any old **** who can’t get it up for us

I happened once upon a maid whose eyes were full of fire
Her physical endowments would have made your hands perspire
To my surprise she told me that she never had been kissed
For her boyfriend was a tired engineering Scientist!

My mother pedals opium, my fathers on the dole
My sister used to walk the streets but now she’s on parole
My brother runs a restaurant with bedrooms in the rear
But they won’t even speak to me ’cause I’m an Engineer

Rapunzel let her hair down for two suitors down below
So one of them could grab a hold and give the old heave-ho
The prince began to climb at once, but soon came out the worst
For the Engineer rode up a lift, and reached Rapunzel first

Sir Francis Drake and all his ships set out for Calais Bay
They heard the Spanish Rum Fleet was heading up that way
But the Engineers had them beat by a night and half a day
And though they were so far away you still could hear them say…

An Engineer once came to class so very drunk and late
Carrying a load that you’d expect to ship by freight
The only things that held him up and kept him on his course
Were the boundary condition and the electromotive force

So now you’ve heard our story and you know we’re Engineers
We love to love our women/fellas and we love to drink our beers
We’ll drink to anyone who comes from far and near
‘Cause we’re a hell-of-a, hell-of-a, hell-of-a, hell-of-a, hell-of-an Engineer!"

well i dont like physics my housemate is mechanical and he has to take all of the physics. chemE at penn state you take all the maths except matrices. Ochem is a straight bitch, i havent taken Physical chem but i heard thats the hardest chem there is and all chemE majors have to take it. basically i dont really leave my house for any extra-curicular activities except for parties which is once a week. if you dont like to study dont be an engineer. supposedly ChemE is harder then mechanical because of the chems you have to take. math isnt bad i have an A- in diff eq which will go down because of cauchy-frobenius equations. where are you going to college/uni?

Well I'm from Australia, but I've from a few people that the Chem is very difficult. I'm going into a college that will have a lot of eng students so I think it will help a bit

I would say eng chem is the hardest, chem eng being fairly hard as well. Mechanical is still tough, but I and a lot of others find it easier just because all the subjects are more applied than other engineering disciplines.

Also "rust in peace34"- Flaming engineer is good, but purple jesus is the ultimate mixed engineering drink.

yea i heard that sophomore is the worst year for every engineer, which it is but just put in a shit load of time to your courses and you should be fine.
