Find out the 10 Struggles of Engineering Students faces regularly. If you are an engineering student, you will certainly face these struggles before your graduation.
10. Early morning alarms
Most Engineering colleges, well most colleges start early round about 8 in the morning, but engineers, even though sleeping late at night, manage to get up early, #respect_engineers, They have a superpower of staying awake late nights, working like a donkey, sleeping for less than an hour and still showing up for the first lecture next day.
Engineers wonder, which engineer invented the alarm, but they thank him for the snooze button as well, thank you engineers for snooze button, and because of that, when we actually want to wake up at 7, we set the alarm to go off, at 5 and snooze it every 15 minutes.
9. Loads of assignments
If you are an engineer, you wouldn’t question this, assignments are as much hated by an engineering student, Engineers are thrown with assignments, right before the internals start and they are confused whether to write assignments or study for internals, and god knows how, they manage to do both. Even Batman couldn’t have done it (Chuckles)!
Nobody in the world likes assignments, we do it only because we want to pass our internals, and we just don’t process whatsoever may be the questions in the assignment, we write it without understanding a single word.
8. Course Projects
As if seminars weren’t just enough to torture the engineering students, they need to submit their course project with presentation, which probably no one will be interested to listen to anyway. But if you do not do “Professor’s standing with a red pen to remark you or deduct your marks” …oooh (chills)
If these weren’t a part of the course, engineers would be found in a bar or pub drinking beer, partying, which nevertheless they already do, “yeah screw the projects, get wasted be-atch” Someone in the group will do it for me. lolz.
7. Girlfriend problems
First of all, Engineering students do not have time enough for themselves and if by chance they happen to have a girlfriend/boyfriend, then it’s really a tough job to give them time, Kudos to couple who are both engineers.
Engineering students are not blessed with girlfriends very soon, they need to struggle for that, and they don’t complain about it, they are hurt when they see their crush talking to other guys, aww….heyy get out and talk to her, “Be a man”!
Now wait a minute, don’t you have so much stuff to do? Go do your work son.
6. Pockets full of emptiness
Being an engineering student will teach you the value of money, if your kid or someone you know is spendthrift and doesn’t value money, then put him in an engineering college, they’ll learn the hard way, and trust me they’ll never ever forget the life’s lessons.
Engineering student’s wallet’s are always full of money. Nope I was just kidding, they are not full of money, they are full of emptiness, you won’t find anything in the darkest corner of the wallet. Sad but true. College sucks out every penny from it.
5. Look like Albert Einstein
No, don’t feel yourself on cloud 9, you just look like an old man/woman who has hair loss and no time to shave or haircut, wearing glasses, well, at least we could look GENIUS, cheers to that. If your father is a rich and you don’t need to worry about money, then you could look like Brad Pitt too…
After sleeplessly and effort-fully working you sure are not gonna look like Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, stop dreaming kids. You look like hell, and a lot worse, you’ll have acidity and whatnot due to lack of sleep.
Engineering is not an easy ride fellas.
4. Not sure what to do after engineering
Trust me on this one, while most of you are dreaming about this or that, you haven’t really planned to do anything with your life, you are a clueless baby, who poops and doesn’t bother even if it’s not cleaned… oooh that hurt ya? TRUTH be-atch!
Most people think that they’ll just start a business after they complete engineering, hey kiddo, “You gotta have an idea first”, business ain’t starting in a day or two.
3. Job interviews
Very interesting part is this, you will always see yourself nailing the interviews in your dreams, thanks to the movies we watch, but when you get out of the interview, you only realize that you were the one actually nailed by the interviewers, “Childhood Dreams crushed huh”? There there fellas!!
Stop watching movies and start asking experienced people what their views on this are and this might get you closer to reality. No, not a good job directly, but will certainly help you in your interviews.
2. Shifting places
After you’ve been placed in a good company, you’ll be compelled to leave your city you grew up in, leave your mommy and daddy and get to face the world yourself, face the world now son. No one here to protect you. But you get to learn a lot, a lot of exposure, good and bad both, brace yourselves engineers, life is coming to get ya.
Good thing is you get to enjoy different places, you travel a lot, and you’re not married to carry baggage all around the world.
1. Heaven on Earth
Well, I wouldn’t call this struggle, but more of a reward for the struggles you’ve been through, see, you survived it like a boss, no matter what life threw at you, you made a step out of it to climb your way up, Well, If you ‘re not here yet, don’t lose hope, God has special plans for engineers. And don’t stop doing your work, you are gifted, one of a kind person in a million.
Count your blessings and have an attitude of gratitude, you will see soon that your life has become beautiful as it should be.
