Hardest and Easiest

  1. Jan 14, 2004 #1
    Generally speaking, what type of Engineering class is most difficult to get into during University?

    What kind of Engineering class is easiest?

    I'm talking about prior-graduate school. I heard that hardest EE, but my thought would be Nuclear?

    Depends on what kind of hard you mean too. I've been told by folks who've been there that chemical engineering is the worst slog, but it also brings greater rewards (either financial or exciting work) than some other disciplines.

    EE, Aero, and Nuclear are probably pretty close, but it depends on the specifics. This is of course why I went from aero to mechanical...

    I'm assuming electronics engineer equals electrical right? And they do computers too?

    Hard as in getting into. As in which one requires the highest GPA, SAT scores and lowest acceptence rates on average.

    Quite simply, a mechanical engineer designs, builds, tests, supports, or sells anything mechanical. Pretty broad.

    One good way to see the variety of jobs available for certain fields is do a search on Monster.com for it.
    Electronics engineer and electrical engineer are not necessarily the same thing. You may want to read the description of each.

    As far as what is hardest to get into, very few colleges require you to declare a major until you're a sophomore - so thats not really an issue.
