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
Do your best to take advice from students who are of age
Students who are a year older than you, can give you ideas to help you get out of embarrassing situations and difficulties. There are modules that you study that require tips and tricks that can save you time.

When attending a course, try to assimilate the maximum to the course and note down all the remarks and comments of your lessons. Do not hesitate to ask questions even if you think she's stupid. It can also get your teacher's attention to more important information. Do not laugh or make fun of your colleagues' questions too. Just know when and how to ask. The best case is to ask a question intelligently.
Work in groups
Attend possibly your specialty
Make professional relations
When you find the occasion, try to keep the contacts with the professionals such as the engineers, the technicians, the heads of companies, the sales representatives ... it would be very beneficial to you for your hiring later. It should be noted that half of the work is the relationship. Being a good engineer or a good technician with a bad relationship, is not a sign of success.

And it is always to be up to date by following the news in the industrial and technological field of your specialties. in fact there are always novelties that can not be found in your lectures. This information is available in specialized sites and journals in different languages and especially in English. Our site is also at your disposal to provide you with the latest news in the field of industrial technology and engineering.
Choose the times and hours of revision
It is advisable to revise your classes in the morning. Before going to school does a review of what you had to study the last sessions this is very beneficial to do the link with the new course. this can save you a lot of time.
