Feels good man, luckily I didn't fall in to the CS trap.

I'm glad you found something that makes you happy, OP, but be careful. It sounds like you're getting obsessed about casting yourself in contrast to CS, which seems like a pretty unhealthy obsession to have.
>>
>>47524055
Did you not realize that you took an engineering degree? You have to learn the engineering part first before you can use that knowledge to analyze and design computer components.
>>
>>47524119
I'm glad you enjoy taking time out of your schedule to dole out advice to other posters, anon, but be careful. It sounds like you're getting obsessed with calling other people obsessed, which seems like a pretty unhealthy obsession to have.

What about like VHDL and digital synthesis?

Wtf where you expecting? You haven't done any small hardware projects or anything? You are fucking useless. Drop out now.

I definitely did jump into it, having screwed around throughout most of my summer post HS and really didn't do a sufficient amount of research.
I'm not doing bad at all, but it's just that I'm in my 2nd undergrad year, and of the 13 courses I've had only two were strictly CS related and I've only studied C (and not that well at that). I just wish we'd done more programming shit. It's probably mostly my fault for not taking the matter into my hands, but the hours are pretty tough already and when I'm not studying or having some sort of social life (>engineers\n>knowing how to party\npick one) I like to shitpost on the chan.

what kind of CE are you taking. im taking real CE and we have math balanced with some EE and programming

Not that guy, but seriously. You're in your second year and you haven't started that yet?
>>
>>47524049
Even if engineering paid much less I would rate it above law/econ. For the simple reason that engineers can make useful things everyone wants. I used to wonder how lawyers made it through the day without suffering panic attacks of meaninglessness, then I realized how common alcoholism was for them.

Ditto for economists. They're like MBAs who don't even run an actual business, so they just tell everybody how things should work, then get BTFO by reality. If you're a level 99 economist then maybe the press will lionize you as you destroy the economy.

Prove me wrong.

Fire off as many intern applications as you can. If you can graduate with some experience to put on a CV, you're laughing.

>I took IE instead of CE

Best decision of my life.
>>
>>47524568
No Im not. I have both of my degrees in CE. I'm saying you should have gone the CS route because that's obviously what you wanted to do.
>>
>>47524650
Well I'm currently working on a website like HackerOne, so I got that going for me

Brehs how do I make a good CV? I'm not some hipster starbucks front end developer so I can't make some flashy website (I probably could but fuck it)

Guys, will i ever get a job? ever?

>>47524996

You better learn C and start doing some microcontroller projects or get involved in you university's robotic teams.

Most companies need at least a 3.0 to get hired but youre gonna have to bust your ass outside of class to make up for those shitty grades.

Most recruiters issue a cutoff for resumes at 3.0. They will make exceptions though for practical experience.

What's your salary? You need $150k/yr to be comfortable in the Valley, absolute minimum. Any less and you'll be sharing a 400 sq ft shithole with 4 other schmucks like yourself
