More often than not, if you have made it to any of the engineering colleges, you’ve already won your parents heart and become the most desirable bachelor. Jokes apart, if you are a student of one of the engineering colleges then you would definitely relate to what we have mentioned below. Moreover, if you have enrolled in one, below is a glimpse of what awaits you.
Before we begin, we would like to assure you that life would be a balance of learning and fun. You will have 4 years that you would cherish forever, that’s a fact. Infact, which demography you are from, would not matter as well. You would make a lot of friends, some of the bonds you create here would be a part of your life forever.
- Disproportionate gender ratio
Hold on, before you assume. Girls don’t do engineering isn’t what we are trying to convey here. We are saying that in most engineering colleges, the proportion as in the ratio is rather uneven. More boys and fewer girls. Especially when it comes to mechanical engineering, this stands true.
- Assignments dump
Engineering students have a little bit more assignment dump to complete than other students. Engineering colleges do give you enough time to complete each one of them but the problem would be that you will make it a habit to complete it on the last day or overnight burning midnight oil along with other batchmates in the hostel. You also may end up copying the assignment or pleading that one batchmate who completes her/ his work timely to help you.
- College Canteen aka your favorite place
Most of the time whether you are bunking a class or just want to chill, even on a date you would be here. In short, there would be no other place that you would love more than here. Why? It is in proximity and has food. You can do brainstorming sessions, banters, debates, singing, chatting and everything in between. The best part? If the canteen guy loves you, you even get your orders at priority, extra on your plate, or even free.
- You learn the art of end time learning
This is a common phenomenon but still you will find students of engineering colleges the master of this art/ How? They have the most complex of things to learn and because they love to chill and have fun most times they are found learning, cramming, and understanding everything. In short, you all might be reading daily but before your exam you will get the mystical powers to complete the whole book and be prepared to face the exam well. And let us not even get to backlogs, they would be a part of your every semester. Just in case you are that student who does everything on time, you might be an exception.
- Group studies would turn to night outs/ ins-
Students of Engineering colleges can pull all-nighters before exams and there is no denial to that fact. But, if there is ever a plan made to study before exams, it surely turns into a party around the tea stall or somewhere close. Because ‘chai’ helps you stay awake. There’s always a chai/ coffee stall that is right outside the college open round the clock.
- The one who goes first in viva is always the most in demand
You would not need to think much about this one. It is clear. For viva assessments to get an idea of what kind of questions are being asked, you go ask the person who goes to the viva first about the questions. Hence, this is how the first guy is the most in demand. The one who goes first gets to enjoy the feeling of what feels like getting famous in minutes for minutes.
- The semester breaks will give mixed feelings
Semester breaks of the college would mean going home and while this will indeed be a happy news for all, we are sure all of them still have this awkward feeling on not wanting to go as the college, friends the canteen, the premise, the chai stall, all have become a part of you.
No matter what, lastly you will always find yourself and other students of engineering colleges love the experience and getting super defensive if someone says anything against it. Let us know in the comments more things you think happen in engineering colleges and we missed mentioning.
