anybody an engineer?

  1. I'm kinda intrested in becoming one I just need to talk to real professionals that have work under their belts.
     
  2. Nope, but im a semester away from my bachelors in the mechanical field...

    Its awesome.
     
  3. all i know is you gotta know a shitta load of math
     
  4. I'm about to change majors from computer engineering to packaging lot less math :)
     
  5. This is what your life turns into... literally.

  6. Me too, dude. Driving trains looks hella fun!

    Woo woo!

  7. agreed....so much
     
  8. i'm still in school for chemical and environmental engineering.
     

  9. maaan, i used to think i was pretty intelligent until i took a couple of chem engineering classes...:eek:

    you guys and computer engineers are fucking gods.

    i'll just chill in my little mechanical cave while you do all the real science.
     
  10. I'm studying computer engineering and science.

    Pending on your major you will for sure have to do Physics I and II, Calc I - III, differential equations, Chemistry I (unless your major involves Chemistry, then expect organic also, possibly more), a lot more math haha, statics, dynamics...then those just get you started. don't know why i listed all of that because you can find it all with one google search haha. But those classes are the foundation of engineering...it's nothing like getting a business degree as it's not about how strong your memory is, it's about how strong your mind is.

    Best of luck to you

    Best of luck
     
  11. this guy is 100% hippie :D
     

  12. not a whole lot hippies in engineering :p
     
  13. I'm gonna study to be a mechanical engineer in the aerospace field. My dad is a mechanical engineer. He loves it, been doing it since he was 15. His dad was also an engineer before him. Kinda runs in the family.
     
  14. at my school, there's a few haha...engineers tend to do chemistry experiments on the side for fun
     

  15. i dunno man, the civil engineering building here on campus reeks of patchouli...

    :D

    i actually think we need more "hippies" in engineering. most of the people in my class just want to go work for raytheon or boeing, or lockheed martin to make weapons systems.

    its so sad to me that we're using our brightest minds for this type of shit, when we should be sending them into alternative energy, green technologies and space travel...

    god damn it, lets engineer someone back to the moon already. :smoke:

    /end irrelevant rant on engineers...

    So your basically saying math won't be used as much?

    Can you explain what mechanical engineer is?

    I would define it as like building engines and stuff and just designing Shit on the computer.

    Is the math hard. Man.
     

  19. this is true :p
     
  20. My dad helps build weapons, not sure what kind of engineer but he works for raytheon and makes big bucks. Its a great job if you like math. He started when you only needed a trade school degree to become an engineer.
