    Programs Can you Actually do Anything with your engineering Degree

    Well a team in most cases outperforms a individual. There's nothing wrong with that at all. It's just that I feel as if it's even more difficult to do something significant for society with your knowledge as the amount of knowledge required to do so is essentially impossible to obtain. The...

    Programs Can you Actually do Anything with your engineering Degree

    I only have a couple semesters left to earn my degree and I still feel as if I have leaned nothing. I know that seems sad but that's honestly how I feel. I'm finishing up my undergraduate degree in electrical engineering. I just get the general sense that what my professors are teaching me is...

    What's the Point in Getting Good Grades in Your Undergrad?

    Well that's pretty impressive. Working 40 hours a week and taking 18 credits a semester is not something many can handle. 40 hours a week of work and 17 credits was way to much for me to handle and still get good grades. When I was doing 34 hours of work and 19 credits I was fine and got...

    What's the Point in Getting Good Grades in Your Undergrad?

    how many credits did you take while working full time? I took 17 and 40 hours a week it was to much for me to handle and get good grades. The semester before I took 19 credits and 34 hours a week, I did surprisingly well. I think that's my limit though.

    What's the Point in Getting Good Grades in Your Undergrad?

    Hi, I'm currently a student in college earning their Bachelor's. From what I here from other people, graduate school isn't really a good economic decision for middle class people. The argument is very persuasive and I believe it to be true. Earning a bachelor's itself is within itself a...

    What do you guys use the summer for?

    are there any certifications that you would recommend obtaining. are there any that are relatively easy to earn or maybe ones that are possible to engineering? I don't know much about engineering ones (anything actually).

    hm... pursue certifications... O.o something extra to add to your resume i guess, something that would get noticed. Like studying something different is cool and sounds interesting but I don't know much about how it would help or that i would forget all of it. Like if i got certified as a emt...

    What do you guys use the summer for?

    What do you guys use the summer for when your not taking courses over the summer. I like to prepare for courses for over the fall. I'm not exactly sure how to but the idea of having courses just being review sounds very nice to me. Last summer I was able to find past tests, assignments...

    Physics 2 without taking Calculus 3 - Mistake?

    Hi, At my school physics 2 has calculus 1 as a prerequisite. You don't have to take calculus 3 while taking physics 2 or prior to taking it. I found physics 2 to be extremely difficult. I was taking while taking calculus 2. We got into flux integrals, Gaussian surface integrals, and some...

    Programs Study like a rockstar = Math degree?

    I would suggest taking caffeine pills and then you could get by on only a couple of hours of sleep and study a lot. Generally yes. Most undergraduate courses that are only 3 credits long only meet 3 hours a weeks every week every semester. Most semesters are just about 4 months long so your...

    Studying Has anyone ever died from studying to much?

    i think one would have to resort to caffeine pills to do that. I think CVS has them for like 8 bucks for a thing of 80. You can take them every 5-6 hours and it'll keep you from sleeping

    Studying Has anyone ever died from studying to much?

    well how does mental exhaustion kill you? If you think about it studying appears to be a very safe activity to take part in and is normally not something that I would consider bad for my health. Studying for 16 hours a day every day would probably make you tired and exhausted but I wouldn't...

    What to do with free elective credits?

    Hi, While I'm majoring in electrical engineering my question is just in general what to do to make you more marketable to employers and is relevant to any major. My particular major allows me 24 credits of free elective credit that I can be whatever I wish to earn my B.S.. There's no sense...
