Hey Tre! I'm guessing this is in regard to Electrical Engineers?


I think the hardest part about being an Electrical Engineer at school is the coursework. The courses you will take will definitely be extremely challenging. Its a discipline that requires lots of rigorous practice and discipline. There's a reason why many engineers fail to graduate with a degree (I believe in my program, only about 50% will graduate with an Electrical Engineering degree from freshman year). I don't think its about being the smartest student in class or being a genius, it really just takes discipline. How much do you want it?


On the industry side, it really depends on the role you are doing. I think the hardest part of engineers to grasp is the social side. Being able to communicate your ideas effectively. In school, the emphasis is completely on the technical concepts. Very little is taught about writing/speaking etc.


I round out my answer, how to deal with it. I think having a great support group and study skills are the steps to success. I know you will hear endless rants and drones about studying effectively but trust me, you should listen and actually do it. It'll save you a ton of headaches once tests roll around since you have been ready for weeks beforehand since you know the concepts so well.


Good luck and I hope you join the ranks of all the other electrical engineers who have survived college :)

Hi Tre'Beon, I assume you're asking, "What's the hardest thing about being an electrical engineer?", since that's the topic you posted your question under. Although I'm not an E.E., I completed some E.E. courses in college, and the math and electrical theory courses were the hardest ones to handle. However, if you enjoy math and understanding how electricity works, then it becomes easier over time. I suggest taking some math or electronics courses at a local community college, and see if you like them or not; that will help you decide quickly if it's for you or not.
