basst82 and Pyrrhus, thanks for the advice. Greatly appreciated. I seem to be caught up with the ASCE BS+30 situation. You're right, its not written in stone. I guess I'm just worried that by the time I have enough work experience under a P.E., the requirements for the exam would change. Then I...
Hey guys, its been a while since I've been on this board and just wanted to ask for some advice/insight/recommendations. I'm currently a senior undergraduate getting my degree in Civil Engineering. Lately, I've really been considering graduate school due to two reasons:
1. ASCE in support of...
Oh, I guess I made the wrong assumption. I was assuming the angle that VB/A made was not necessarily 20 degrees. I guess I'm confused (a little bit) still is because I can't see it geometrically. Like say for instance, I'm still on the assumption that the angle is not 20 degrees for VB/A and...
I saw that 20 degrees was given, I just don't see how the angle is 20 degrees on the solution diagram. Ship A observes ship B at 20 degrees, but how is VB/A also 20 degrees down from horizontal? Sorry for the confusion!

Why is the angle from VB/A 20 degrees from the solution diagram? It would seem that I had to know that...
yungman, neergmas thanks for the insights. I really appreciate it. I think I'm mostly worried about how my parents and family would react to me switching out. They would question whether or not I would even be able to land a job as opposed to engineering. When someone says they are a math...
I'm falling in love with math everyday I tutor. I know I'm just dealing with the basic algebra, trig and calculus where I work but it has definitely influenced me towards a career in math. neergmas, were you a genius in math or did you just like the subject? Reason why I ask is because I'm...
Hey guys, I've been going through a dilemma lately. I'm currently an engineering major and I've completed all the math and engineering courses available at a JC. But for some reason I don't feel truly happy or excited about engineering. I got A's in all my engineering classes but I honestly do...
Hello arunma, after reading your post (sorry that I deleted my original post!) do you mind giving me your email? I would like to ask some questions since you have experience living in an "Asian" household with the typical "Asian" parents. I also would like to ask you about Physics in general...
edit: I've decided to stick with CE. Though I do love the study of the universe, I don't think I would be able to hand graduate school and all the research that is packed along with it. The books I've read are enough to satisfy my interest in space and time. During this economy, I think I'm...
By the time I take E&M in the fall I would be finished with all of my math. Right now I'm taking Calc3 and DE. In the summer I will be taking Linear Algebra. Thank you for the insight.
Hi, I just would like to hear some insights from you guys about my situation. Last semester I took Physics - Mechanics (1st sem physics for engineers). I passed it with a high B. I felt comfortable but not superior at the subject after taking the final. Now this semester I was supposed to take...
Homework Statement
A pipe is designed to have its cross sectional area decreasing linearly from 12-inch diameter to 6-inch diameter. What is the acceleration rate at a section 10 inches from the ending section of 12-inch pipe at time = 3 sec? The volume flow rate Q=2t cfs (note: t is in sec)...
thanks very much for the insights guys. its very informing to hear your experiences with e&m. i see that the main advice is simply the mathematics involved. I am only in calcII and i'll be taking calcIII with mechanics. are vectors are in calcIII?
ive been hearing about this course in the community college i attend and from what I've heard is that this is the hardest lower division physics course that most people take. I am a civil engineering major and the people I've talked to are also engineering majors. any advice for those who have...
yeah i won't be transferring until spring 2010, still a long way to go. definitely ill visit some campuses and talk with engineering majors/faculty and the like.
see I've been getting mixed reviews about uc davis. some say its really bad, then others say its really good. i have considered...
hey guys, I'm finishing up on my 2nd year at community college in norcal majoring in civil engineering. with the end of the semester coming, that question pops up in my mind once more. where do i want to transfer to? as of now, my mind is set on going to a uc (university of california) as...
should i or should i not? any advice? here's my current fall08 schedule:
calculusIII
differential equations
mechanics of solids and fluids
general ed course
both calcIII and de are in the evening (back-to-back, 2 hours each). for those who have taken both of these classes, is it...
