The best thing about engineering is that the world revolves around us. And that’s not just because they need us for everything. It’s because we pick the co-ordinate system. 😉
The word ‘Engineering’ comes from a Latin word meaning ‘cleverness’. This is ironic since the exams we write do not test our intelligence but how well we can mug up the subject a night before the exam.
We are often told that our program is not giving the “expected result” even when the teachers themselves do not know what is to be expected. Well, I know that cursing a teacher wouldn’t make a difference on our grades, but the feeling is awesome. 😉
In four years of engineering, we study over 60 subjects and are expected to remember everything that we have learnt in those 60 subjects at the time of an interview. If a human brain could store that much information, we wouldn’t even need computers!
Taking up Engineering means giving up on a lot of things. Some see it as a suicide mission. One has to give up on his social life, sleep, health. But it’s worth it if you love what you are doing and it makes you happy to learn and apply new things everyday.
Everytime you question your decision of pursuing engineering, just tell yourself that you’re the origin. And that everything in the world depends on you. 😀
Makes me proud. 🙂
