<--- Mechanical too.
I had to take all those classes as well... AND write a thesis for my B.S.

Mechanical for the win.

We refered to the Mfg Eng. program as M.Easy because they didn't have to take any of the harder classes.

oh yeah oh yeah well I minored in philosophy! put that in your Dasein and smoke it.


night classes blow. we had a bio class that was only offered 7-10pm Tues & Thurs. I decided to take it for a grade because pass/fail required getting a C or better. I didn't waste many nights in that class room and left happily with my D.

Wow, good for you Matt. I thought about it until the first philosophy class and got my *** handed to me. Oh well.

My wife has a B.S. in Engineering Management with a specialization in Mechanical Engineering as opposed to my official B.S.M.E. Basically a manufacturing engineer; and yes she has more job opportunities, but then again she is a very smart female engineer and I'm sure that helps

Thesis? What was yours? We all had to do "senior projects" that took all of senior year and had to result in a substancial physical project and 2 senior project reports (one for each semester). I did the drivetrain on the AIAA/NASA lunar rover project. Won NASA's best engineering design, 2002

Who here took the FE exam? Another requirement for graduation :(

Hopefully the people who designed this bridge.

It's been 5 years since I took it so I don't remember anything relevant. They give you a nice equation booklet that I still use today.

The problems are not as hard as maintaining the desire to complete the test. The last hour or two fatigue sets in and you just don't care much anymore. I didn't "study", just sorta reviewed everything the day before.

Make plans for getting drunk after the test; you'll need it after that amount of boredom. And don't finish early...they won't let you out. Also, don't waste your time by studying or reviewing at all.
