I am happy with Electrical Engineering. I would do it all over again because I am passionate about this field. It is very interesting to me. I do plan to land a job in small/medium sized company. Then after I've had a job for a couple years go back and get my Masters and PhD. The only concern I have is getting experience that some of these jobs want. Most likely you will have to start off junior/entry level and gain some experience there before moving on to a regular engineering job.
Well I am a transfer student. The admission process was fairly easy and straightforward. They would send emails and letters to you informing you of what is going on and what else is needed from you. To get into the engineering program you must obtain a C or better in calculus math. In my previous school I got a C-. So I was undeclared until I got an A in Calculus II. Other than that the biggest challenge I encountered was time management. I had work study and a p/t job while going to school f/t. So anytime I was free I would study and review or do homework. Any waking moment I would engage in my studies if I wasn't doing anything else.
I am studying Electrical and Computer Engineering and I am enjoying it. If you are passionate about the subject you are learning then you would also enjoy it. What I think is really interesting is when you actually apply all of the info you learned in all your courses. Everything comes together into one.The workload can be high sometimes but you must prioritize what you have to do and when. Some of the facilities that we have at the school could be better especially when it requires specific software and the school doesn't have it. The career net has a lot of job opportunities posted.
The process at financial aid is ok. I thought the staff was helpful. They do try to get you as much money as they can. However, I believe there can be some improvements. It would be more helpful if they gave you some direction as to where you can get extra funds for school and not just taking out more loans. Also email response should be a lot faster. I actually try to check in on my financial aid every now and then to make sure everything is good.
Very hard to find a park and if you find one you would have to constantly feed the meter or risk tickets. Circling to find a park not far from the campus is a nightmare and can make you late. It's just easier to take public transportation.
