Studying is the key to academic success in college. I was fortunate to learn a very effective way to study, a method that has earned me A’s in every major-specific engineering class. Check out the four steps of my study method, so you can become a pro at studying and bring your A-game, literally!
Gone are the days when companies searched for a narrow set of skills. If you are banking on a single aspect of a specific domain in electrical engineering, it is time to expand your expertise.
Many students contact Ingenium to ask bloggers about their internship experiences. The following Q&A is one blogger’s way of providing answers.
We talk about the ethical obligations of an engineer fairly often…What we fail to acknowledge is the broader civic and community obligations we have as engineers.
For this blog post, I interviewed fellow Ph.D. student Tushar Pandey, who works primarily in low-dimensional topology and hyperbolic geometry in the Department of Mathematics at Texas A&M University.
Maybe you were surprised by the amount of math in your classes and maybe you weren’t, but love it or hate it, you are going to need to be a math person to be successful as an engineer.
Attention! Are you feeling lost in a sea of research labs? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. In this blog post, I’ll give you the lowdown on how to find the perfect research lab that matches your academic goals and research interests.
Time really flies while abroad. There are so many new and exciting things to do, it can be overwhelming. Follow these tips to ensure you maximize your time.
Studying abroad can be intimidating, but a two-week program is an excellent way to get a feel of the experience.
The factors contributing to success and failure of a paper mostly depend on research type and domain. Only a handful of steps can be generalized, but here are five of the most important steps in writing a research paper.
After a long first semester of engineering at Texas A&M University, here’s what I’ve taken away. Learning is not easy, and if you are not getting physically angry at your lab assignments, then you are doing something wrong.
It is easy to get lost in the daily hustle in engineering school, so it is essential to take a step back once in a while to do something creative, fun or both. The 1000+ student organizations plan and organize the activities. All you have to do is show up and make some connections.
Studying abroad is an amazing experience, and I would highly recommend it to any Aggie. Not only are there many opportunities to learn a new culture and language, but being abroad also made me value my industrial engineering major in a whole new way.
Ever wondered what the day-to-day grind of a grad student looks like? Is it laid back and relaxed or insanely hectic? Let’s explore in this post.
Being in a Navy/Marine Corps outfit as both a fish and an upperclassman, I know that being an engineer in the Corps is challenging. Thus, here are some tips I used for engineering academic success as a cadet.
While all teaching assistantships aren’t equal and your mileage may vary, I put together some general advice on handling a TA position that I have learned over the last two years.
To pursue a degree in a place thousands of miles from home can be daunting. For many students, like myself, who come here for an education, a community often provides respite from the rigors of academic work.
During my time at Texas A&M University, a resounding lesson has been that there is always more to learn. Despite the frustrations, stress and monotony that can come with a college experience, I want to learn. But to truly learn, it is necessary to step out of the comfortable scope of your own knowledge.
My favorite class in my undergrad at A&M has been Dr. Greg Chamitoff’s human Spaceflight operations course. Not only is Dr. Chamitoff a former NASA astronaut, he has successfully maintained his connections in Spaceflight to provide an exhilarating class for all space enthusiasts.
Graduate school can be exciting and exhilarating. However, the change from strict undergraduate deadlines or fixed work hours can be a double-edged sword. One of the best ways to deal with this is to treat graduate school like a full-time job.
I stumbled upon Baja SAE, a team open to all students excited to gain design and manufacturing experience, at one of the university’s open house events, and once I became a student, I gave an apprentice application a shot. That year’s team took a chance on me, and it’s ended up shaping my college years and my career path.
No one can do everything, and I’m not suggesting that you can. But I want to emphasize that once you graduate, even though you’re the same person as before you received your diploma, all of these opportunities vanish in an instant.
Students consider pursuing a Ph.D. for multiple reasons such as funding, job prospects or career paths. Whatever your motivation may be, it is essential to pick an interesting project and an advisor who can guide you to be your best.
As college students, we’re presented with many opportunities, but I believe the greatest of them is the opportunity to explore.
This fall, I was fortunate enough to participate in an operations engineer co-op at PCC Structurals, Inc. From my experience, here are four tips for students going into future manufacturing roles.
In this blog post, I’ll share how I went from knowing nothing to having multiple internships, research experience and leadership positions in the nuclear industry. While this post is about my experience breaking into nuclear, it can be equally applied to any industry.
Everyone has a list of their dream companies they’d like to work for, but sometimes the expectations don’t meet reality. It is important to choose the most suitable company. The following steps will help you come across opportunities not generally seen from the surface.
