Being an engineering student myself, however, I completely want to clear the doubts of those who think that engineering is simple. Because in reality, it is anything but that. Lately, I have been seeing a lot of trolls on social media, telling you that students in engineering colleges have the fun whole semester, mug up two days before the examinations, throw it on their answer sheets, and remain happy. So here, let me tell you what it is like to be a student of the so-called ‘simplest’ subject.
Then, when you go to your Second Year, they will ask you to work more for the extra-curricular activities, while seeing that you keep performing absolutely well in your academics (because that, of course, is mandatory), because no matter how good you score, only studies are not sufficient. So, then you start running a race, trying to excel and prove your worth, while doing all sorts of activities, some (and most of the times) not realizing why actually are you doing it.
The Third Year is even worse because you are responsible for conducting all sorts of activities within and outside the college. If you wish to go for even higher studies, all you need to do is to slog for extra hours, after your college studies. You have to manage your juniors and then coordinate with your seniors.
The actual pressure then builds up, in the Fourth Year, when you have to face the placements. It's the time when you are about to get the results for all the efforts you have made in all your college life; and it happens to you only if you have been successful enough in passing all the exams, and facing all the hurdles, which are a lot, to say the least.
So, the next time, if this thought crosses your mind, even for once, do remember this. We do a lot of work, and there is no way any of it is simple.
