Amanda’s Answer

I completely agree with Rafael. Something I did to help with the load is to take a few classes during the summer of my general courses so I could focus on my core math, science and engineering.

Rafael’s Answer

The work load for engineering is intense, but the reward of becoming an engineer and getting work quickly is the payout at the end. As I have mentioned to other students, the work is hard for a reason. If the work in college was easy, then anyone would become a doctor, engineer, lawyer, etc. Don't become afraid of the workload and try to work in groups whenever possible so that you can engage with other individuals to understand the work. Working in groups also helps you get used to be accountable for your part of the work and also in how to collaborate with other individuals.

Nick’s Answer

Engineering isn't easy, and the college workload is challenging as well. I recommend you identify what you love to do, and focus on that. If you love your field it will feel rewarding and worth the work.

Sam’s Answer

The difficulty of college depends on you. If you are an A student in high school, you won't have any problems in college. On the other hand, if you are a C student in high school, you will probably struggle in college. If you are/were a C student in high school, you are going to want to immdeiately make changes to your life to put school first. This does not mean cutting everything else out of your life, but it does mean spending more time on school and less time on everything else.

Peter’s Answer

There are some good answers already given, Trayquil. Engineering is one of the more challenging majors. But it also one of the most interesting and professionally rewarding careers for a serious, goal-oriented person. There is always good demand for engineers and the salary is certainly better than most professions.
