It really depends on the combination of coursework you take in your college. From my personal experience as a Masters graduate (EE) - Usually the coursework's that you are interested, if it is a high demanding course it wont all be available to you at the time (semester) you desire. So you have to pace your coursework in such a way you take at least one course of your interest and one elective (required by university for you to earn a degree) and the remaining one as easy as possible. By "easy" I meant there are courses which really doesn't need much of your time. More like practical courses. For me it was PLC (Programmable Logic controller and Autonomous system) which was just programming and robotics and it was really fun . This combination will offload your payload and make you concentrate on the course you are interested in. The courses that were of importance to me was embedded processors and controllers (totally 5 of them base and advanced), the remaining courses were supporting courses for programming and required by university to complete the degree. I am not a bright student, I was an average student in my bachelors (EE), but I used this time to identify my real interest which was getting into embedded systems and I was able to achieve it.
So what I am trying to say is, it may look difficult seeing from outside, but once you get into the details and break up into small pieces it becomes easy. The above is the worst case scenario, but if you think about the best case here which happened for me where my elective courses also turned out to be my favorite classes because the professors here are so good that they can make you learn anything from scratch. I had so much time to invest on my personal projects and I even ended up working at my university's Research Institute in robotics project. Even after doing this I was able to apply for jobs and crack few interviews. To summarize, what really matters is time management and a bit of combination work (which your Graduate Advisor can help with).

Drew recommends the following next steps:
Naturally every person and every situation is different but in general engineering courses are among the most challenging you can take at college.
Please review some math dictionaries below that will help you in your math classes.
Also review the course catalog or the program advisement sheet for engineering. Try some of the colleges near you to get a feel across the board of what's offered. It will reveal the descriptions of the courses for that major.
I have included below a link to a junior college and a university. Should you decide to start in the engineering direction, you will be able to transfer to the larger university. I am just introducing another idea since I don't know fully your situation.

I will keep it simple as there are already a lot of good comments.
Engineering is comparatively more challenging than what you have faced so far. You will find out that there are a lot smarter people around you and they are willing to help. Also, if you are struggling with something there will be professors, faculty members, senior students always there for you.
You will also realize that the library is the best place in college, you will find yourself mostly there.
Engineering is about problem-solving. It can be in the field of computers (CS or IT) or electrical or electronic devices (ECE or EEE) or bridges, roads (Civil), and 20 others. You will have to decide what you like and what you would like to solve.
In the end, just wanna say that you will be fine even you find engineering difficult, I would still recommend it.
"If it wasn’t difficult, anyone would do it".
If you ever decide to pursue engineering…Welcome to the club!
We need lot more engineers than we currently have and there are cool problems that you can help solve
No pain no gain. Computer engineering/ electrical engineer remains as one of the top starting salaries to date.
If you are a problem solver, like math, and think outside of the box, you are a natural.
I hope this helps
