Is Being An Engineer Difficult?

“Engineering” sounds like a difficult discipline.

It involves more math and physics than most students want to take.

But some engineering majors are more difficult than others.

And even though the classes are rigorous a dedicated student can make it through.

Is engineering really tough?

No, it’s not and Yes, it is. The answer depends much on your personal skill set and capabilities. Engineering is very much a game of Management. For core engineering branches like Mechanical and Electrical, yes, the level of difficulty is higher.

What is the most difficult engineering degree?

  • 9.5/10— Nuclear Engineering— gluons, tau neutrinos, bosons …
  • 9.2/10— Electrical Engineering— circuits galore.
  • 9.0/10— Computer Engineering— digital circuits AND coding.
  • 8.8/10— Chemical Engineering— chemical diagrams, stereochem, etc.
  • 8.6/10— Aerospace Engineering— design of spacecraft and aircraft.

Is engineering harder than medicine?

Engineering is harder, but most medical students didn’t take engineering, so to them, medical school was/is harder than anything they’ve taken so far.

Is becoming an electrical engineer hard?

Electrical Engineering is not hard to learn, it is not time consuming. You don’t work out pages and pages of math, but you need to work your way through it, you need to think, analyze and ponder over it. It needs a different kind of thinking than most other fields. It is not hard, and it will become easier with time.
