engineering is hard as ****. I majored in engineering my first two semesters in a really good engineering school in nyc, I finished the year with a 1.2 gpa. Im going to community college now.

you may have been selling your school a bit there...

but really that hard? I just finished freshman year also, with a 3.01 GPA

yeah i mean i went to a joke of a high school in westchester county. All these kids in my engineering classes knew so much already from taking engineering classes in HS and I was sorta behind to begin with.

dont worry about that, Ive never taken engineering class in my life. I got a C in calc1 and chem 1, but then last semester I got my **** together and got a B- in Calc2 and a B+ in chem2

1.2gpa? Lets do alittle math here friend.
Say you had 7 classes each semester, 7 multiplied by two for two semesters is 14 okay.
14*1.2=16.8
We are assuming the point system is:
A=4 B=3 C=2 D=1
So with that we can assume that you got 3-C's and 11-D's.
Why the **** were you getting 11-D's and 3-C's for?
Its not easy I understand but when youre failing that badly you should have done something 11-D's best case senario first semester you got three C's and four D's and you didn't think you had to fix something?

it was me who wrote the anon comment, i just made an account. I took 5 classes the 1st semester. got a C+ in ethics, B in religion, a D in physics, a C+ in into to engineering, and I dropped calc because I was failing and I decided to drop it so the F wouldnt count and I would re-take it. The 2nd semster I retook calc and got a C, an F in college writing, an F in engineering computation, a C- in sports history, and a D in chemistry.

it was civil, and you needed a history credit (sports history) and a religion credit because it is a catholic school

I understand Calc dpending on the school they make calculus extremely difficult to weed out people. but Ethics a C come on you weren't trying very hard. I am civil engineer at Texas A&M by the way

no one takes 7 classes, it's impossible. Most people take 4, 5 is a stretch. 6 is almost unheard of

What's so bad about engineering? I am starting a 4 year mechanical engineering course this September.

There is a huge shortage here in the UK, so a job is almost guaranteed.

The job is guaranteed because no country in the world produces enough quality engineers to fulfill the demand. It's a difficult job and you have to be incredibly good at maths and physics to do it and as a result is is highly paid.

'Proper' engineers rank up there with doctors and lawyers. By proper I mean actual chartered engineers, not the car guy that changes your oil and still brands himself one.

mechanical engineering...
I just survived the first year. The other 4 I just,.... don't even care anymore abou them.
My teachers are complete assholes, ******* of work due yesterday, everyone is rushing to do stuff and everyone thinks you still don't do enough.
You think math would be the biggest problem? Bitch, math is a blessing amongst the other *********** of classes, you breath in relief. And physics... holy mother of god I miss physics.
Advice kids: choose wisely and be prepared to feel the despair

In Scoland we only need to do 4 Years for a full degree, 3 if you decide to settle for a designated degree other than an honors.

I'm also doing mechanical. I just done my first year as well. I found it relatively easy. The only class that offered something challenging was Engineering Mechanics. I got 4 A's and 2 B's. We didn't get any exams this year though, it was ased on coursework and a few class tests.

Im studying in glasgow, I only have to do 2 years but I only end up with a HNC, I can do an extra year to get a HND

(07/01/2013) [-]
Yeah, With an HNC though, you can go straight into your second year of uni.
An HNC is just a longer route into uni. I think I would have preferred to to an HNC other than doing 2 years worth of Highers. Since the majority of stuff I done in the highers hasn't shown up at all on the course (Except Integration and Differentiation), the HNC would have been more relevant, and I assume more interesting.

Its been ok, I'm doing an extra year at the end since I'm doing marine engineering also, should be finishing in a couple of months, can't wait, City of Glasgow college was the worst place I could have done it though

I've never understood that.
The Northern Irish also need to pay the same as the English, Wales however can receive some funding.
I think its stupid that Scotland is willing to fund a random guy from Romania other than someone that can already enter and live in Scotland without a passport or visa.

It seems like a waste of their money, I'd much rather they let the whole of the UK and Ireland have free funding in Scotland, but have everyone else in Europe (That doesn't already have free education eg Sweden) pay.

On the other hand though, i reckon it's westminster that's put in the prices for English students in Scotland. Since, if Scotland gave you free education, yous would head on up and use our system. Therefore the lovely tory government you elected wouldn't get **** from students.

As annoyed as I am with the Tories, I'm still happy having them over Labour, who seem intent on giving ever lazy cunt money for nothing to get votes.

From Ed Milibands recent speeches, Labour is starting to agree with the tories on taking everything and giving minimum in return.

I think they should cut off all benefits except student assistance, some disability and pensions. Job seekers allowance etc is ********, people getting money for doing nothing. Students need it, because its tough working and studying at the same time. Some disabled people need it, since if you're paralyzed you can't do much. And pension, because no-one (Except charity shops and churches) want you if you're old.

Disability allowance needs to be revised a lot though. Like people being classed as disabled because they're obese, then they get a disabled parking ticket, encouraging them to get fatter. In my opinion, they should get a ticket that says they need to park further away, pay more on road tax. fuel and insurance, to encourage them to walk more.

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.

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?

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
