At first I wanted to go into engineering, but I was mediocre in chemistry and physics so I went to a math degree with a focus on scientific computing. Results, I like it much better than the weeding out courses for engineering. Granted some of the higher math courses are a pain and some subjects ,cough cough statistics cough cough, are a pain in the arse, but overall it's more fun thinking about algorithms and how to code for parallel computing!

Maths and theoretic physics here, engineerings fun and all but I'd rather have 10 boards full of working to end up at 0=0 like a dick head

I'm an Electronic Engineer. It's a very difficult career, it makes you cry blood But is an amazing profession, any engineering it is. Cheer up if you think you can afford challenges and reach difficult goals. Read this, it is true...

Any engineering requires a lot of math actually. Expect to need Calc IV and a Linear Algebra and/or a Differential Equation class at least. Anyway, engineering is a great field if you have the ability. Just be warned that engineering is the hardest discipline at a university, with generally the highest failure rate too, so be prepared.


I'm Colombian (I speak spanish)... so, forgive me if I made a mistake writing this

Hmm...Only saw a couple people mention Civil Engineering, and I'm not sure if most of them are even doing it. Oh well, it works for me at least, so far (half way to my BS).

Enter college as a computer engineering, changed my major in my sophomore year to a computer information specialist.
Regret nothing!

I'm a sophomore in college studying Software Engineering. At first, I was so confused and didn't think i'd ever find my passion, completely ignoring the years of random coding for fun here and there and the fact that most of my hobbies are on a computer. It just kept popping in my mind until I let myself try it. Now I feel secure with my decision The only problem is that you never truly know your grade in any math/science class until the very end. Sometimes there are curves, and sometimes there are cut-throats, but you just have to trust yourself.

"engineering" usually means designing a thing whether it is a building system, a bridge, or a circuitboard. The title of "engineer" is usually one of the highest-rankings short of the higher academic degrees. Still, one can be an engineer on a train or a "Landscape management engineer" (which means you shovel crap to keep the land clean) making the title meaninless.

It is impossible to say, "What about engineers?" because it is more of a level within any profession rather than a profession of themselves. Do you run CNC milling machines? then you are an operator. Do you fix those machines? then you are a technician. Do you design those machines? then you are an engineer. The same could be said about construction of buildings, air conditioning systems, etc.

SO to be an engineer, you have to have solid math and science knowledge and the ability to apply that knowledge to the physical world. It is a mentally demanding position for most to be in, with fewer rewards than those in the top echelons of business.

And it has been my experience that the technicians who repair machines are a great deal better at understanding them than the engineers who design them, they just have fewer years of schooling. I've met engineers who couldn't operate the machines they designed. Most engineers I've met have their heads in the clouds, trying to find problems for the "brilliant" and unnecessary solution they've already dreamed up.

I am a QA Engineer for a game studio. I get paid alright (low for an engineer) but I get to play a game all day and drop giant bot net hammers on the game and see what breaks. I get to cause problems and wander up to people, point and laugh, and then tell them to fix their shit. I love my job.
