High school graduates today want an easy pass in life. Sorry to tell you, if you want to earn money, you have to work hard for it. In order for you to be given the opportunity to earn money, you have to pick a college degree that you will excel in.
Engineering degrees have a reputation of being the most difficult degree to pass. Because of this, many students do not include engineering in their list of courses to take. On the other hand, there are still those students who are up for the challenge and there are those that have dreamed to become engineers someday. No amount of intimidating words will stop these people from getting their engineering degree.
It is true that Engineering courses are difficult. Nevertheless, nothing comes easy in life nowadays. Learning to play an instrument is hard and excelling in a sport is difficult too. Ask yourself, why not invest on a degree that can prove to be rewarding throughout your life? It will just take you 4 years to get your bachelor’s and you can start earning big money for yourself already.
If you are determined to pursue an engineering degree, do not let anyone talk you out of it. Your first days in college will be intimidating. People will tell you that the engineering course will be very difficult and you should switch. These are the words of cowards and you should know better.
You should know that the more difficult the course is, the more rewarding it will be at the end. Look at med students who take at least 8-10 years to become doctors. Once they become doctors, it is just an easy walk in the park for them. Preparation is key to go through the engineering course. Prepare yourself mentally and emotionally. Dedicate yourself and be committed. If you have all of these, you will pass the engineering course with flying colors.
While you are at it, strive to excel even if it is difficult. Do not be someone who studies just for the sake of passing. Nonetheless, enrolling in an engineering degree does not mean that you have to cut down on your social life. Your classmates will prove to be very helpful to you to surviving this degree. You will also learn more about teamwork as engineers always work with a team. Good luck and have fun becoming an engineer.
