long nerdy awesome post.


that sounds quite similar to a lot of the work that i've done, simply in a different context. i'm an automotive technician but later i would like to move into the engineering side of designing automobiles, and modern vehicles use the trigger wheel/ variable reluctance magnet in many different ways. crankshaft position, camshaft position, input and output shaft speed, vehicle speed, wheel speed, those all rely heavily on the technology you mentioned. i suppose the point of what im saying is that it is a HUGE relief to know im not the only nerdy person on UG.

I was accepting into two schools that I like very much on two different majors, and I was wondering if I could get some help
I got into UCI for Computer Engineering and UCLA for Electric Engineering, can someone explain to me exactly the type of things I'll be doing for each major?

Thanks in advance, much appreciated

computer: lots of programming, learning how processors are made etc

electrical: lots of electrical circuits, complex electricity, magnetism due to electricity, litt bit of programing(but thats in every engineering) etc


very short quick answer to your question. they are actually very different disciplines

Ahh thanks...I'm pretty sure I'm going to be going to UCI since it's close to my house and I can just commute, but I still have the option to change my major if I wish, so I guess I should think about that. I'll fill out my Statement of Intent to Register soon and ponder that some more then.

Thanks again.

Hey look buddy, I'm an engineer, that means I solve problems. Not problems like "What is beauty?", because that because that would fall within the purview of your conundrums of philosophy.

I solve practical problems.

For instance, How am I going to stop some big mean mother hubbard from tearing me a structurally superfluous new behind? The answer...

Use a gun. And if that don't work...

Use more gun.

Wow Corey, you should have just gone right in to the trades as an electrician. My dad pulls in $100,000 a year without factoring in the overtime (and he gets a lot of overtime, so the actual amount can get insanely high, more around the $170,000-200,000 range, and there are any major shutdowns). Let me put some perspective on how good the pay is: One of his good buddies is a specialist surgeon. They sat down and did the math and it took the surgeon until he was 52 to make the same amount my dad makes, and my dad needed nothing other than a High School diploma to get in. Plus my dad works a comfy maintenance job, he works about one hour each shift unless something goes wrong (which happens about once a week, but Petro Can are a bunch of morons), after that they just do whatever, since they bring in contractors unless there is an emergency. So, when you are stressing over your exams, just remember that my dad will probably still make more money than you after you've been working for 20+ years, and he will do considerably less work. The pension doesn't hurt either.

tl;dr: electrician > electrical engineer. Just throwing that out there.

EDIT: Oh yeah, just my opinion by the way. Not trying to hate, just sayin'.

my dad's an electrician in the US, and he by no way earns alot. Electricians earn squat, unless they get lucky (like your dad).

Yeah, your Dad did get lucky, Thrashtastic15. Your Dad is in the last generation that is going to be able to make $100,000+/year without a college degree. That will be very rare with our generation.

Spot on mate, it is used fricking everywhere in cars these days. My 3rd year project is all about different sensors in the automotive industry, and the friggin trigger wheel + VRS/Hall Effect is everywhere! So I thought it would be a good thing to take a stage further, haven't pulled it off though.

Hello my fellow engineers, here a quick anecdote from my lectures:

Female engineer asks: "Why do transformers buzz?"
Professor answers: "How much do you think you'd buzz if you went through 50 periods a second?"

Electricians don't earn squat. My dad does make a lot more then most, but almost all the electricians I've met make at least $100,000. I'm just telling you what I've personally experienced, they seem to make a lot less outside of Canada I see.

Anyways, my only experience with anything related to engineering: Grade 11 physics. All I need to say is that by the end of the year I was sure I wanted to go in to law.

3rd Year Civil eng.

And I will share a bad engineering joke

There are 3 engineers, a Civil, Mechanical and Electrical engineer. They are all looking at the human body and discussing the existence (and career) of God. The Mech engineer says "God is clearly a mechanical engineer. Look at the intricate bones and muscles, and the mechanics that go on in the motion we take for granted."

The Electrical Engineer scoffs. "Have you ever examined the nervous system!? The electrical impulses and the connections are incredible - God is most definitely an Electrical Engineer."

The Civil Engineer doesn't even glance at his peers. "God is obviously a Civil Engineer. I mean, who else would put a sewage system through a recreational area?"

I guess that would depend upon whether they were looking to hire an electrician or an electrical engineer. The two are not variants of each other.

How can you tell someone who knows how to make explosives WITH THINGS FOUND IN THE HOUSE and a guy who frequently works with RESEARCHERS AT CERN?

protip: CERN is where the Hadron collider is.

kinda hard to make fun of people who are badass when the only thing you really know how to do is keep a diode from burning out.

Don, I asked my postgrad advisor today if we could put an orange in the hypersonic tunnel like we discussed earlier today. He looked at me like I had taken a shit on his dog.

Having said that, a few moments later, he said some numbnut professor was paying to have a silhouette of Great Britain laser-cut, mounted in the wind tunnel, and then subjected to Hypersonic flow. Then he'd take shadowgraph pictures of it to show the shockwaves around it, and use the pictures as official advertisments/postcards/letterheads for our research institute.

I am pissed off at how my student fees are being spent

I'm still going to keep bugging him about the orange though. Might try a tomato as well.
