Any engineering guys here? I'm MechE in major and stuff, and I'm doing well in my classes, it's just that everything is so tedious and unexciting. Any of you guys experienced the same thing? What did you do, stick with it and wait for it to pick up or change majors?
I just switched to physocs. Honestly being an accredited engineer isnt worth the boredom of cadwork and punching in values for load specs of a deadbolt. Im gonna make less money but i think that doing what you love is more valuable.
It's not that the course material is too hard for me to handle, I've been making A's with the rare B. I know it all builds on itself, it's simply dull and doesn't get me excited for the future like learning most things does for me. Or at least, I am worried that I'm going to be funneled into something in the field totally unrelated to my interests
It really depends on what jobs you want to do. If you are making good grades, that allows you to get jobs easier. Just make sure you are going to a highly rated engineering college and make sure to be willing to relocate.
I'm afraid my uni doesn't offer exactly that. Biomedical sciences yes, MechE yes, but not biomechanical anything. I would go biomedical sciences, but that is more of a premed/prepharmacy major
What about doing internships and stuff? My uni will not stop stressing the ungodly importance of doing a co-op or internship, to the point of saying you won't get hired if you don't have one
