It's likely that it is different where you are, but something to consider. Where I go, engineering courses expire after 5 years, so completing a degree at 2-3 classes per semester would not work, as you would eventually have to go back and redo classes from your earlier years, eventually going in a continuous circle. Also, some classes may not be offered every semester, and certain prerequisite classes may not be met. There's much to factor in.Would studying engineering on a part time basis (2 classes per semester) - while working - make the difficulty more manageable?
It is the same here. The course load is 6-7 classes every semester, and the average grades in these classes are often in the 30-40% range, according to the few engineering friends I have.the average courseload engineering students take is around 6 or 7 courses
