Hi PF,

I'm a 12th grade pre-engineering student and I'm super excited about starting my degree in EE next year. Like most seniors, I've been looking into colleges and careers for months and months and I would like some personal advice.

There are many things that I wish I had known/realized when I was younger (not like I've been alive for that long, though haha) and I'm sure you have your lists too.

So, what would you say is the most important thing that you've learned or have come to realize as far as engineering or life in general goes?
A lot of good advice has been given.

Something I learned during my upper-level years was about networking. There are professional societies devoted to supporting students as well as professionals.

If one is serious about EE, then get a student membership IEEE - www.ieee.org. I became a student member and remained a member for many years.

Don't be afraid to seek assistance - in course work or otherwise - particuarly from the faculty or graduate students.
