I just got accepted into Engineering

  1. Jul 13, 2006 #1
    I am really excited right now. I just got into the Engineering Transfer program at my local university. Ill be taking the first 2 years of electrical engineering here and then transferring to UBC for the final 2. There is so much I want to learn about this field...basically a dream come true! It looks like a hefty load with 6 courses per semester and all, but I will sure give it my best. I'm sure ill have to visit here to ask questions once in a while :smile:

    Yes, congratulations!

    Wow, I didn't know that Physics Forums offers the first two year of an electrical engineering programme. :biggrin:

    It' really nice to see enthusiasm. Best of luck.

    You're in for a treat. I'm doing third year EE "stuff" right now, and I love it. It's nice once you get the boring math out of the way, and can move onto some interesting material.

    It is not my first year of being in school, but after taking some sciences and other stuff I realized that I finally found my niche. Microcontrollers and all that stuff really fascinate me. I am a little worried about all the math (they say its a slammer), but I assume practise and studying will get pretty much anyone through it. Thanks for the kudo's guys.

    Great job. I'm going into third year and I really enjoy it too. UBC is a really good school. I was thinking about going there, but I ended up at Queen's.

    Just get some good study habits and you'll be fine. Personally what I found best, is to treat school like a job. Try to put in a specific amount of time each and every day. If you get into the habit of learning things before the final you might do fine in the class, but you will screw yourself in the later courses because you will have to work extra hard to recall all the old material. Each class really does build off the other.

    Hell yeah, triden! I considered going to UBC as well, but ended up not wanting to leave the country because of transfer issues. I hope you continue to love it.

    Excellent advice! That's the same advice I was given when I started college, and it served me well.

    Congrats Triden!

    That explains my lousy grades - I only seem to learn things after the final. The upside, as you point out, is that it's now easier for me to remember the stuff for the next course. :redface:

    Heck, if only exams were about stuff you learned in the earlier course...

    Right on! If I could have just waited until after I had my Ph.D. to take my undergrad exams, I'd have had a 4.0 gpa. :biggrin: :rofl:
