Hello, I am thinking of transferring from a Bachelor of Commerce program to a Bachelor of Applied Science program. I have 10 days left to make this decision. I originally wanted went into my current program with aspirations of becoming a successful investor or trader or financial analyst. However, after learning more about these professions, my interest has waned and I feel that they are not right for me. One of my reasons for this is that I believe that my strong dislike for financial accounting means that I am most likely not a good fit for a finance job. I have already completed the first year of my program and I feel that I don't really enjoy it. I like the idea of learning how to design things and figuring how things work. I also enjoyed physics and math in high school. I applied to transfer majors a couple months ago and I have recently been offer admission to the faculty of applied science at my university. The main things that are holding me back is the thought of the intense workload and the associated sleep deprivation and the possibility of working in an adverse work setting after I graduate. Please note that I would also have to spend an extra year in college to get my degree as only 9 of the ~30 credits which I took are salvageable. Could anyone provide me with any insight on this matter? Anything related to personal experiences of studying as an engineering undergrad or working as an engineer would be greatly appreciated as well. Edit: I have been admitted into a general engineering program where I choose my specialization in my second year. I am mainly considering mechanical or electrical engineering. To clarify: I am transferring into the first year of the engineering program. I am a person who needs 8 to 10 hours of sleep. I've recently spoken to another of my friends. His schedule is like this: 6:30am - wake up and then do morning routine, eat breakfast, drive to school 8:00 am- first class starts 4:00 pm - last class ends 5 pm - get home and relax 7 to 8 eat dinner 8 to 10 do hwk, write lab reports 10 to 12 study 12 to 12:30 shower, brush teeth etc. 12: 30 to 6:30 sleep That’s only six hours of sleep, and he does this every day. Before midterms, and finals, he sleeps even less. He has only finished 1st year of engineering. I’ve talked to several of my friends and they all have a similar schedule. Do all engineering students only sleep six hours?
