Anyone here becoming an engineer?
Im heading towards mechanical engineering.
Im average in math but I've got experience and a hobby in tinkering cars, bikes, and phones since high school.
Any tips on succeeding?
Im finishing up my last year in ME. Tips? Dont expect to have the same college experience as your buddies in business or marketing. Dont get me wrong youll still have fun and party and shit(if thats what youre into), you just wont be able to go nearly as hard if you want to get a decent GPA. Get into a solid study habit early on and get your shit done. DO NOT RELY ON SOLUTION MANUALS. Dont get behind. Dont sit and struggle with the same problems, get help. There are TONS of resources at your disposal. Talk to EVERYONE and NETWORK. Get involved in ASME and other engineering clubs, youll meet people and have stuff to put on your resume. Try your best to get an internship before you graduate. If you want to meet girls find an easy non engineering elective to take cause more than likely there will be 95% guys.
Work hard and dont forget to enjoy yourself, its easy to get bogged down. Its not going to be easy man, but it will be damn well worth the effort.
