Sex can still be had. Gotta find the right balance between fun and school or you will go crazy. This pic is more true.



But somehow I managed to be one of the 3 that passed.

I-R-N-GA-Near! Last week I couldn't spell it. This week I R 1!

I actually went to a federal military academy (USMMA Kings Point, NY) through the engineering program... Had to complete the total curriculum in 4 years and 1/2 of the Sophomore and Junior years were spent at sea onboard ships with no organized class time, so essentially 3 years to complete what normally takes 5 years... Class started out with 1116... 312 graduated... Yea, the engineering curriculum is tough, especially when you throw in military service with it... plus perform well enough on the football field to justify my scholarship... Wouldn't change a thing, but wouldn't do it like that again!
Having said all that, I managed to do "more" than engineering too...

I got the same speech. Looking back that 1 in 3 statistic was about right too.
If a person is not smart enough to figure out how to use a condom then they are going to have a rough time passing engineering classes.

Yep. I was the one who didnít make it, didnít fail though. Ended up landing a good job halfway through and I did what alot of 20 year olds would do and chased the dollar. Ended up graduating with an industrial management degree 10 years down the road. I still wish I wouldíve finished engineering but canít complain where Iím at.

I can see it's time for a little more humor.

A pessimist looks at a half filled glass and says it's half empty. An optimist looks at the same glass and says it's half full. An engineer looks at it, and looks at it some more, and measures it, and calculates it......and says this container is twice as big as necesary.

Some cliche's exist because there is truth to them. Our weed out rate was over 50%. Heck, even if you made it to your Junior year there were no guarantees. I still have nightmares about EE345K. Prof's stated policy was 66% failure rate. In a required course.

I just finished up last year and it's doable for anyone with enough determination and reasoning skills. I took mainly 17-18 hour semesters then on my last semester I took 9 and went out 5 nights a week to make up for lost time.

An engineer, a mathematician, and a physicist are each presented with a beautiful woman 8 feet away, and the stipulation that at each time interval, they may move half of the remaining distance towards her.

The mathematician concludes that after N iterations there will be 8 divided by 2N feet remaining which will never equal zero so he gives up on the spot.

The physicist opines that if each iteration requires a finite amount of energy then the energy expended in the approach will be inversely proportional to the distance remaining and gives up on the spot.

The engineer says "8 feet, 4 feet, 2 feet, 1 foot, 6 inches, good enough for practical purposes".

Same here. I didn't fail out, but I did drop Linear circuits twice to keep from it. I changed majors after the 2nd time.

Reminds me of a joke:

Three engineers are sitting in a bar: A Mechanical Engineer, an Electrical Engineer and a Civil Engineer. They're having a discussion about God and all his creations.

Mechanical Engineer: I'm sure God is a Mechanical Engineer. I mean look at the human heart. A perfect example of a pump system that is so efficient and perfect that it operates flawlessly for 70 or 80 years.

Electrical Engineer: Well I'm sure God is an Electrical Engineer. Look at the central nervous system and how perfectly the brain can send electrical-like impulses to generate power in the limbs, the face, the organs. Everything is run off of this perfect electrical system.

Civil Engineer: God is definitely a Civil Engineer. Just look at women. I mean who, besides a Civil Engineer, would put the sewage dump a half inch away from the playground.

My 9 year old Daughter who I swear will be an engineer one day said this the other day. "I don't understand why people even talk about, "is the Glass half full or half empty". It all depends on what you are doing. If you are drinking it, it's half empty and if you are filling it up its half full. Problem solved."

When I was getting my electrical engineering degree I had to take a public speaking class and used that quote to open one of my presentations about engineering (well I just said the Engineer would say it's twice as large, I didn't use the measure and calculate part). It went over well, as I was the only engineering student in with a bunch of teaching and business students. I was also 40 and they were all kids right out of high school so they never heard it before .

A marine engineer IS that. When you're a thousand miles from nowhere in the middle of the Pacific and something breaks, You gotta know what to do and how to fix it! When I graduated, I was a certified welder, but man the old use it or lose it has sure kicked in on that! Welding is NOT like riding a bicycle! I ain't much more than a dirt dauber now and a grinder is my friend... but I get "full penetration", and my stuff don't break at the weld...

And a marine engineer is a pretty good lek-trishun too...
