Do the Hard Bit after Joining the Best Electrical and Electronic Engineering University
So, you took admission in the best electrical and electronic engineering university in Singapore? Well, congratulations! You must be on top of the world at the moment and in no way do I want to burst your bubble, but you need to understand that by joining the leading university of electrical and electronic engineering, you have completed the easier part. The difficult part is ensuring that you complete your engineering course successfully. There are many who take admission in electrical engineering schools and start their classes, but fail to keep up with their coursework and give up midway. In fact, I have had a couple of batch mates who cracked under pressure and left in the middle of the course. Being a former engineering student I know that the going can get quite tough at times, but I also know that if you keep a few things in mind, you can do well. I have tried making a note of things that helped me, especially during my first year. Hope they will help you as well.
- Take notes – My years as an engineering student have taught me that there is nothing that can substitute good notes. During the classes, take notes. When exams approach and you sit down to study, you will realize that the notes can be more useful than your textbooks. However, this does not mean that you will not go through your textbooks at all. Most of the textbooks recommended by schools for electrical engineering are dense but you have to go through them if you want to get good scores. While reading your textbooks, you can use page markers and highlights to mark important sections. This will make it easier for you to find them when you revise before the exams.
- Get to know your professors – Developing relationships with your professors is important. There were a couple of professors I formed good relationships with during my college years and I could approach them for any help I needed, even outside the classroom. When you know your professors well, not only will you get help with homework, you will also get job references and industry insights.
- Broaden your skills- Just because you are doing electrical and electronic engineering does not mean that you should be concerned only about honing and sharpening your skills in this particular domain. Try to broaden your skills by joining a business class or a writing class. I enrolled for a design class to learn methods of representing information visually.
Summary – Joining the best electrical and electronic engineering university is easy, what might prove difficult is completing the course successfully. During my college days, I figured out that having a list of ‘to-dos’ can help me perform better. The to-dos listed in this blog are tried and tested, they have helped me and I sincerely hope they have help you as well. All the best!
