Tips for successful engineering education

Becoming an engineer is the dream of many young people passionate about technology and innovation. After passing the entrance examination to the engineering studies cycle, the student found himself even in a new educational and training experience that is most often the end of his studies career. Entry to engineering school is the last step a student must take to graduate. It is also the most important step during which you, as an engineering student, build your future profile. Failure, generally, is not allowed only once for three years. And it will be better to think of success than failure. This bad way of sanding, which was very prevalent in the preparatory cycle and which was the cause of the failure of several students.

As an engineer, after years of experience in industry and professional training, I read an article in English that gave tips on how to successfully complete engineering education in America, which content did not really seduce, and I found it not really suited to the conditions of students in Tunisia or it will be the same case for other Maghreb countries, so I had the idea to write this article as advice that can help our students better pass their engineering training cycle.

Give importance to your specialty

If you have chosen a specialty in your engineering school, it is because you have to give it all your importance and your interest, even if you took it in to be convinced. I know several engineers who made specialties that were there because he had no choice. But after finishing their studies, they hired themselves in important positions. When you're a student, you do not know exactly what's going on in the industry market. Sometimes people give importance to a specialty that is not required in the market. The good engineer is the one who knows what to do.

There is not one specialty better than another

If there is a specialty in engineering, it is because it is required in the industry. There is no good or bad specialty but there is good or bad engineer. Engineering is first and foremost a state of mind. Even in your specialty, there will be many things to discover and learn in your professional career later. If someone has made a particular specialty, it is likely that he will do some thing differnent in his professional life.
