Only engineers can comprehend this… agree?
Studying engineering is a lot like a rollercoaster ride – it starts steady, proceeds with the thrill of the highs and lows, the surprise of twists and turns, and ends with a sense of accomplishment. Sometime along the way, it makes you sick. Using the same metaphor, we can get this conclusion: once you just stay on track, hold on and move along – regardless of what happens after taking on the ride – you will certainly get to the end. The experiences throughout are worth remembering.
If you are an engineering student or already an engineer, you will surely relate to these moments during that rollercoaster ride:
When you hear your non-engineering friends how they are having a hard time with their course, without realizing that you are an engineering student and you experience far worse things
Your first quiz in engineering where you thought lazy studying will still work just like in high school
That time when you pulled all-nighters the entire week for all of your requirements and the professor noticed you are sleeping in his lecture
And that time when the week is unusually vacant because of university events and your professors have to attend them but you are not required to
Thinking of those days when maths are relatively much easier than later years
Noticing that the attendance in your class is fading as the semester goes by
When you turn in your testpaper ahead of everyone else because you know nothing about the items, and yet you brag about it
Feeling smart and nerdy whenever you understand a math or engineering joke
When you rushed a project hours before submission only to find out your teacher moved the deadline
Hearing somebody say they loved the lesson and you have no idea about it despite attending the same lecture
When the smartest person in class said he only got a 95, when you have 50 and already happy with it
That moment you and your seatmate were caught cheating on a test
People too often think you know a lot about math and science, but really you are just studying engineering
