5 Struggles Of Engineering Students

Engineering life is something that every one of us will cherish forever. Most of you will agree that these days were the best days in your life when you compare them to the corporate life you are living. However, engineering students may not agree with this statement. Engineering students are often busy with Assignments, lab, viva, sessionals, projects, seminars, and the list goes on and on. What makes engineering fun is the moments you have with your friends, the fun you had during your fest, and the days when classes were canceled. September 15th was Engineers day in honor of M. Visvesvaraya on his birthday. Here are 5 struggles of every Engineering student.

1. A lot of confusion

Confusion and anxiety become your partner as soon as you join engineering. There are nights when you spend asking yourself why you took up engineering. An engineering student’s life is not just filled with colors and fun, it’s also filled with those dark nights when you feel clueless and have no idea about what you are going to do next.

2. Time Vs You

Late-night assignments, projects, records are part of your life now. Finishing everything before the deadline is sometimes a huge task. There are weeks when you have tons of work to do but very little time. Still, you manage to chill the entire evening with friends and get into a race with time the entire night to finish your work before the deadline.

3. Struggling With Memory

The chapters are so huge that when you finish one unit and go to the next one, there is a high probability that you don’t remember the one you just finished. This may not be applicable to everyone out there. We are referring to the average engineering student.

4. Future Crisis

It might sound really simple. Get a job and work after engineering. But most of the final year students are still so clueless about what they really want in their life. Should they settle for the job they get or explore the possibilities of making their dreams come true? Finding a job is also very hard these days. These questions are something which they deal with almost every day.

5. What is Sleep?

Sometimes, assignments keep you awake, sometimes exams do. But at least a week before the day of the lab exam, you will have to stay awake till 2 am. In some colleges, class starts at 8. So, losing sleep will become a regular part of your life.
