Well I've gone on a few little rants off-topic on a bunch of posts this morning... cause I'm waiting for class to start! I have my first class (Environmental Economics) at 2PM today, so I'm on campus chilling out in the Library trying to stay warm.

Who else is in school now? Post up your major and classes...

I'm at RPI (not RIT), studying physics with one semester to go... finshed all my real hard classes a while ago so I'm taking:

Environmental Econ
Processes of Engineering (shop/lab course)
Developmental Psychology
Creative Non-Fiction Writing
World Music
Philosphy of Space and Time

Looks like it's going to be fun... lots of reading/writing and no more math!

Major: Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (Dual)

currently in my 8th semester of college. and ill probably have 4 more to go (2 years). my curriculum is set out for 4.5 years taking 17-19 credits/semester (158 creds total to graduate with 2 BS degrees in ME and AE). i tried it once and never again, so ill take the extra time in college with a lighter workload per semester, seeing as how i also have a job.

currently taking: 16 credits

MAE 316: Analysis of Engineering Systems - coding programs to solve problems
MAE 336: Compressible Aerodynamics - pretty much characteristics of aerodynamics in super sonic flight
MAE 342: Dynamcis of Machines - mechanisms and machines
MAE 345: Aerospace Structures - loading of aerospace structures and design limitations
MAE 365: Flight Dynamics - dynamics of planes and design of planes, also includes simulation
ENGR 471: Fluids Video II - just sit back and watch movies about fluid flow for a better understanding and physical interpretation. no HW, no tests, no final, just have to attend 13/15 class and i get an A :)

Major: Materials Science & Metalurgical Engineering

Currently a 2nd quarter sophomore. ~3 years to go because of Co-op stuff happening Spring and Summer Quarters this year (yay income).

Taking 17 Hours right now:

MSE 282: X-ray diffraction Lab; not as cool as it sounds, but important to know.
MSE 342: Microstructure of Materials; goes with the lab, but more interesting.
ME 410: Statics; Free-body diagrams, pretty easy as long as you're careful and thorough.
Math 254: 3-Dimensional Calculus; Calc with a "z" variable
Engineering Graphics 167: Programming; Yeah, enough said.

I'm at OSU, so we go by quarters. It's a decently heavy workload, but not so heavy that I can't go out every so often.

Ah, I remember it like it was yesterday....

BTW, Mechanical Engineering is what you'll want to put on your resume, otherwise you'l be hard-pressed to become employed when it's all said and done. Just a friendly reminder from one engineering student to another.

I just saw that I did that. HAHA I just got home from school and was tired when that was typed.
I'm a little behind in my math and science but I still have two more years of High School.

I can definitely relate. I take it you're doing a Post-Secondary type thing then?

Yep, I just got home from the high school. At 10:30 I leave for college (Wright State Lake Campus). I enjoy the enviroment at college more than HS. All the people that have to show up to HS so they don't have to go to jail are not there. Also I have not seen one gothic person there.lol

Did you take Post-Secondary when you were in High School?

Nope, I looked into it, but I was taking enough AP classes that I didn't have time in my schedule. I'll agree that college is better (much better) because you actually learn stuff, you don't have busy work (as much), and you'll actually use what you learn.

I take it you're looking at colleges right now. Where are you looking?

I have thought about UT, OSU, maybe UC (it's the lowest on my list). I still have next year to decide so I have not been looking to hard. A school that offers a Co-op would be great. Companies love to see that you have experience. Worst comes to worst I will transfer to Wright state main campus.

Well, I've got a co-op coming up this next quarter, so I can tell you first-hand that OSU's got it. Good people here too. And we've got the Center for Automotive Research, which is always nice (if you're on one of the teams anyway).

My brother has a friend that helped build a race car and went to cali over the summer with the group through OSU. I would love to be part of one of these groups. All the colleges I stated above have these programs as that is one of the things I am also looking at.
