Doctor vs Engineer vs Business | Deciding on a Career


Did you always know that you wanted to be
a doctor? I didn’t either. In fact, even in college, I was weighing my
options between going into engineering, business, and medicine. In this video, we’ll go over each and how
you can best decide which career path is right for you. What’s going on guys, Dr. Jubbal, MedSchoolInsiders.com Before we dive in, there are two caveats we must go over, first, my personal story as
to how I decided to become a doctor is much more personal than what I am explaining in
this video. Personal factors, such as being diagnosed
with a chronic illness at the beginning of college, influenced my decision. I go over the full story on my vlog channel,
link in the description below. There are several videos on the vlog channel
that go more into my personal experiences with career options, health issues, and my
philosophy on optimizing one’s life. For an even deeper and more intimate view
of what this looks like, visit me on Instagram. At number two, I am inherently biased as I
went to medical school and earned my MD. That being said, I do love engineering and
business as well and have dabbled with both, as you’ll see. I will also do my best to be as objective
as possible and portray the pros and cons of each, and help guide you in making your
decision. For those of you with a engineering or business
backgrounds, I tremendously value your input as you have a different perspective than me. Let me know what you agree or disagree with
down in the comments. Without further ado, let’s get to it. First, let’s talk about becoming a doctor. I like many others consider medicine to be
a highly noble profession. You deeply connect with patients, they trust
you in their most vulnerable states, and you can leave a deeper personal impact and change
their lives in a way that is difficult to match in any other profession. One of the most common reasons people want
to go into medicine and become a doctor is the fulfillment from helping others. That sounds great, but remember that you can
help others in a multitude of professions. In many healthcare settings, nurses actually
have more frequent and extended patient contact than doctors. Policemen help enforce the law and protect
those in need. Firefighters and EMTs help people in the most
dire of emergencies. Engineers and businessmen and women help people
as well through their work. Helping others is not unique to being a doctor. That being said, the desire to help others
is not a bad reason to pursue medicine. Helping others is fundamental in finding one’s
life purpose and fulfillment. However, it isn’t unique to being a doctor. What is unique is the intellectual challenge
and interpersonal connection that comes with being a doctor. I like to joke that all doctors are nerds
because it is tremendously difficult to be successful in medical school and beyond without
having an innate desire to learn, grow, and challenge yourself. Medicine is a profession where being a lifelong
learner is essential. You are going to be required to take boards
every 10 years, and to provide the best care to your patients, you need to keep up to date
with research. At Med School Insiders, we go over a wide
array of study strategies to make you a more effective lifelong learner, and that includes
learning to enjoy the process of learning. There are several other reasons individuals
pursue medicine, but these are less frequently spoken about, but at Med School Insiders,
we keep it real. First the salary. You should never go into medicine because
of the money, but to deny the job security and high earning potential as a factor would
be dishonest. Compared to engineers or businessmen and women,
doctors on average earn more, emphasis placed, on average. Based on the specialty, doctors can expect
to earn between $200,000 to $600,000 per year. There are, of course, outliers to this range
on both ends of the spectrum. The reason you shouldn’t pursue medicine
for the money is because of opportunity cost and the rigorous work that is required by
the profession. By the time you’re actually making the big
bucks in your 30s, you’ve sunk hundreds of thousands of dollars into your medical
education, and while others have been making a salary and saving for the past 7 to 12 years,
you’re been in training and are now you’re finally starting but from a negative net worth. You’ll be working longer hours too, as the
average attending physician works 60 hours per week in the US. In residency, expect that to be closer to
70 or 80 hours per week, plus studying at home. And remember the average medical student graduates
with close to $200,000 in debt. The image of becoming a doctor and being rich
is mostly antiquated. With decreasing compensation and increasing
student loans, don’t expect a lavish lifestyle. Most doctors are very risk-averse. The profession of medicine, after all, is
extremely secure. AI is coming, but it’s going to be replacing
several other careers before surgeons get replaced, and people will always need healthcare. There’s always a demand. Assess your own risk tolerance and determine
what you’re comfortable with. But at the same time, don’t let fear of
risk pigeon hole your potential future. Usually, when there is more risk, there is
the potential for more reward. Take business for example, businessmen and
women have a much higher earning potential than physicians and much more potential to
change the world, but it’s not guaranteed. In fact, most businessmen and women, on average,
make less than doctors. Stated another way, if you become a doctor,
you’ll probably make more money however, you could potentially make more money in business. Now, certain cultures place heavy emphasis
on the status and desirability of being a doctor. While this is a nice perk of being a physician,
I am doubtful that it contributes to long term satisfaction. Sure, it’s nice to be respected for the
hard work, dedication, and long hours, but if this is your reason for going into medicine,
it’s not gonna sustain you. Intrinsic satisfaction and fulfillment from
the work is much more important. Next, let’s talk about engineering as a
profession. Similar to medicine, engineering allows you
to specialize based on your area of interest. In medicine, you can go with plastic surgery,
pathology, radiology, internal medicine, psych, et cetera and find the best specialty for
your personality and preferred lifestyle. In engineering, you can also choose from a
variety of specializations, such as civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical,
and much more. Similar to medicine, engineering also provides
a high level of job security and a relatively high salary. While many physicians earn in the low to mid
six-figure range, many engineers are in the high five to low six-figure range. Engineers, on average, make less than doctors,
but they also aren’t required to go through four years of medical school and three to
eight years of residency and they graduate with significantly less debt. I was personally very interested in computer
science because the way of thinking is so unique and logical. I loved programming in high school and it
came easily to me. The problem solving of computer science and
programming is very stimulating and fun in my opinion. I was also a huge fan of math in high school
and in college and I thoroughly enjoyed physics, calculus, and mechanical engineering electives. But one thing that pushed me away from engineering
was imagining what I would be doing day in and day out. I like interacting with people, and I felt
that the interpersonal stimulation of being a doctor and meeting patients every day would
be more in line with my ideal future than what the job of an engineer would traditionally
entail. It was difficult to see myself working at
a desk nine to five. And not all engineers necessarily do, but
doctors usually have more interpersonal stimulation than engineers do. Lastly, let’s talk about business. This is a difficult career to cover in such
a short video, as business is the most flexible and diverse of these three career paths. While the job security, clout, and average
earning potential is not as optimal compared to medicine, business has several distinct
and significant advantages over the other two options. First, business provides tremendous flexibility
in every aspect of your career. You don’t have to go to graduate school,
and you don’t have to work for someone else, you don’t have to follow the traditional
rules. Second, while the average earning potential
is lower, businessmen and women have the potential to make significantly more than doctors or
engineers. Lastly, and most importantly, business provides
the most direct path to change the world. Allow me to explain. Since college, my interests have changed and
developed. I grew obsessed with biomedical innovation,
or the invention of technologies to improve patient care. I found myself at the intersection of medicine,
business, and engineering. I even founded a biomedical incubator at UC
San Diego called Blue LINC to pursue this interest. In the incubator, we combine teams of medical
students, engineering graduate students, and business MBA students and mentor them to create
healthcare startups. It’s tremendously exciting because there’s
a potential to affect thousands or even millions of patients by improving healthcare technologies. With my MD I have the clinical expertise. However, had I majored in engineering in college,
I would have been better prepared to work on designing and developing these healthcare
technologies. If I had business training, that would help
me take my ideas to market. Each discipline, medicine, business, and engineering
is necessary to create a lasting impact through biomedical innovation. And I love this idea of leaving a mark on
the world, having a significant impact, and it’s much easier to do through business. Don’t get me wrong, doctors and engineers
have very important and significant roles in society. But doctors, they usually create deep connections
and help one patient at a time. Engineers create the infrastructure from which
all of society operates. These are both extremely important professions
that deserve respect. However, for a technology to impact and truly
change the world, it needs to be sustainable from a business perspective. You could create a new treatment for diabetes
that improves patient outcomes. However, if it’s cost-prohibitive, or is
challenging from a patient compliance perspective, or is ultimately not sustainable as a business,
it’s unlikely to make a significant impact. Elon Musk is revolutionizing space travel
and challenging our dependence on fossil fuels for personal transport through business. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs revolutionized and
created the possibility of personal computing through business. Sheryl Sandberg has used her influence at
Facebook to push for women’s health and immigration reform. Each of their impacts has been facilitated
through business. Medicine, engineering, and business are each
fantastic careers to pursue. And remember, you don’t have to limit yourself
to just one or stick to a prescribed path. Don’t be afraid to break the mold and take
the path less traveled. Through Blue LINC and Med School Insiders,
I’ve been combining my interest of medicine and business. What about you? Are you going all-in on medicine? Considering a career in business or engineering? I’d love to hear your future plans down

  1. There's a third world war going in my brain..between the three👩‍⚕️👩‍🔧👩‍💼

  2. Like you, I was in a tough spot between engineering and medicine but I learned that the engineering market is INSANELY crowded. It’s hard to find a job because there are so many people becoming engineers.

  3. I want a phd which would mean I would earn £121,000 a year as an aerospace engineer and I will be able to design and create new inventions that could go on the rockets we use or even the international space station and at least 1 person has to be up there from the team to put it up there and that COULD be ME

  4. Here's a big tip:
    You don't need a business degree to own a business so you can do engineering or medicine and still do business later in your career.

  5. In Dominican Republic 🇩🇴 we have also 3 options:
    1- Baseball player
    2- Basketball Player
    3- Bachata, Merengue, folklore music from the Island. Lol

  6. I’m a chemical engineer but I want to be a doctor in medecine I think my passion was in medecine but I discovered it after finishing engineering so I’m trying to study medicine and I don’t fucking care even that I’m 26 years old I want to do it because I don’t want to suffer all my life why I didn’t do it .
    My dream is to help people and to work in big hospitals so God will help me to make my dream true . Byee

  7. My Dad complains that his co-worker that is a woman and did less schooling than him is making more money than him. I try to explain to him business is high key where its at in America and he is still stuck in "more school, more money" which isn't true. He is a chemical engineer that wanted to be a doctor and all my other siblings didnt become one. Now, its my destiny to become one to make our family look good but i dont really care that bad about "looking good" lmao. its hard man but im still going to do me at the end of the day.

  8. Don't get medicine: say goodbye to your life in most of specialties. When you have no spare time for yourself, It doesn't worth the effort.

  9. Good video thanks for sharing.
    I’m considering study again (studying for the first time since 2011 when I completed a massage certificate).
    I’ve worked in business for the last 6 years and want to get a formal qualification. I’m thinking law or medicine. I then get stuck because I think I could just start a business and make a bigger difference (like your video represents).

    No idea what to do. I’m thinking I should just start studying and I can always start business ideas on the side

  10. This is great. I'm currently working in venture capital, and looking to combine my passions for business, technology, and health in the near future. As such I'm now at the juncture where I want to specialise in something technical, and was debating bioengineering or medicine, but due to many of the same factors as you I'm leaning towards med. Cheers for the great content!

  11. The real future is that all things will be Engineering + Business.

    A.I. is on its way in and already has the ability to recall and store and recall medical information fast and accurately. Medicine will only continue to be heavily disrupted by A.I. and Biomedical Engineering in the years to come.

    But he is right about business. You need to have the business knowledge to take technical ideas to market. And there are plenty of creative technical solutions people have every day that they want to innovate on.

    So the dad truth is that Medicine is destined to go down as Engineering and Business go up. And if you want to do medicine, it probably serves your best interest to do Medicine + Business.

    A nurse with some coding experience created the EPIC software system used by hospitals across the country and she has a net worth of over $1B.

    My opinion is that doing Engineering and Business is like playing in the sandbox. You build cool things, offer them as solutions, and make money.

  12. But dont forget. Most of those business people stated in the end have knowledge/passions/ or degrees in science or tech. They came up with the idea but an investor helped them eventually become a business. Not only that, most of the people mentioned are entrepreneurs, not true business students. They studied what their passion and decided to expand their application by creating something then eventually contacted or were approached by investors. One thing about entrepreneurship is that you do not need an MBA. Of course it will def help but in order to be an entrepreneur, you cannot just focus on business. You need the other side of the equation. I feel like this video also leaves out a lot of stuff about business because it mostly talked about medical entrepreneurship. Business is more concentrated in finance, management, marketing, and economics rather than entrepreneurship.

  13. My parents option
    Doctor
    Lawyer
    Engineer
    Me:Wanna be A Programmer
    Parents:*Disgrace*(They dont know what a programmer is)
    Still after explaining they are still hell bend over those 3 option.
    I am the one who is diappointed of them

  14. I am a vet and i wanted to be one since ever. It is a fun job. The money is ok (at least in switzerland, in the UK and i believe in USA) but the stress and the pressure are so HIGH that I now need to change career. No matter what path you will go in, you will probably doubt at some point. And if you have the time and money, you should probably do a double degree, just in case. If you don't have the will, time or money, then make at least sure you stay surrounded by people you love.

  15. Like all degrees, to be successful, It depends on what you want, how you apply your skills and how well you do in the job. From a Business Perspective, there are many Business majors as well such as Accounting, Finance, Economics, Marketing, Operations, Management ect. The good thing about the three main money subjects Accounting, Finance and Economics is that 99.999% of the worlds Society, Companies, Households, Organisations runs on MONEY, so these majors can land you a job either specifically within that major or used across the the large Business spectrum. A Business career exposes you to nearly everything in the real world from different people, markets, operations, products, management styles and money ect.

    Not all companies needs a Doctor or Engineer, but every company needs money and to make profits. The Business Money Major salaries are always rated high with other fields such as Medical, Engineering and Computer Science. With Money Majors or Management you can also be CEO, Snr Management or on the Board. Yes Doctors, Engineers, Lawyers, Computer Engineers earn alot of money as well but again not every company needs them, at least on a daily basis, so taking on a Business Degree you are not limiting yourself to specific fields within sectors as a Business Degree goes across the board e.g seeds in the ground (Supply Chain Operations), Product Development (Marketing), Investments (Finance), New company start ups (Business Incubators) or CEO which some have a CPA or CA (Accounting) as they know Business costs.

    But again it all depends what you like and how you apply yourself e.g. if you love being a Doctor or Engineer that earns alot of money then thats great as well.

  16. Sorry you may notice edited extra comments as they werent initially showing, so realised if I made a new comment it would show. But I cannot stress enough its up to individuals to use skills and grow. Business can have challenges e.g. some competitive, some roles repetitive or slow, but again be open minded for skills and growth for better roles or fulfillment.

  17. 11:00 Shiva Vandana wrote good books about the real reason Bill Gate got rich and his "contributions". 11:17 And these four people are criminals by facts. Read "The Age of Surveillance Capitalism" by Zuboff.

  18. Great video really made me think and do some self reflecting on my dreams and goals. Like you I always was diagnosed with a iconic illness, so the medical field has always pulled at me and I have always had a great respect for it. And I thought about becoming a pediatric doctor. To show kids yes it is hard dealing with these illness but I made it through and so can you and to have their back through the struggles. But I always love technology and always be fascinated and intrigued by it. So I thought if use my passion to make something to help others that would be almost as good and being a doctor to them. But I also know just like you said to really make a difference you need to be in business too. So my dream is to be a tech entrepreneur and make multiple things to help people.
    Everything from maybe an actual realized artificial pancreas to vehicles to an artificial intelligence network and thing else I imagine. So I applaud you on making on getting to where you have in your goal. It keeps the hope in me that maybe I can too. So thank you for helping me realize my goal and that it's not always about the money even though that helps especially with medical bills. But it's about you dream and how you want to make a impact or change the world. Wish you the best of luck.

  19. I got my degree in civil engineering. Now I'm a union carpenter because engineering is nothing but computer screens and office work.

  20. Very biased but sorry that's the truth. Engineering drop out rate is on average higher than Medicine. Also, in Engineering, it takes you about 7 to 8 years to become a P.Eng and i am not even talking about further specialization.

  21. nah, f*** medicine. I'm someone who double majored in college with pre-med and computer science. I truly saw myself being a doctor, but having to beg and convince those medical school deans of my "passion" was just too much. It was as if my outside interests were a detriment and made me disloyal somehow to medicine. They really expect too much these days. it costs too much, takes too long, and it isn't the great profession it used to be. Many doctors I know half-joke that they wouldn't go into medicine right now. sucks… I know I would have been a good doctor. their loss.

  22. This is a nice video thanks for the advice I am going for nursing at the moment I am interested in medicine but I also like psychology
    And I feel like just choosing one career … is too plain ( black & white )
    Many of my friends had said this is a crazy idea you can’t go into becoming an RN and at the same time going for psychology as well …. it wouldn’t make a future career I am not too sure maybe it can …

  23. If you be a doctor ,in a long run ,after earning enough money you could even set up your own business .its your choice whether building hotel or restaurant or clinic with your Certificate.

  24. i have no ambition though, i don't know what to do when i grow up, i'm going to college next year and i still don't know what my degree is.

  25. I really wish business was a choice for me.. too bad im stuck between med or engineering. let's just hope that biochemistry is bearable for me

  26. learning medicine is the most time consuming thing ever.am half way through,but if i had the chance to go back in time,i would have choose another field.

  27. I think it’s important to note that the people you talk about when mentioning the point that you can change the world through business are not really in business because they studied it at university but because they are entrepreneurs. Bill Gates e.g. studied law. Of course it takes some business knowledge to found companies but you can gain that through Gavin business as a secondary course or self-teaching (I guess so?).
    I’m currently very drawn between studying computer science or business as well. I do want to make a change and start my own companies, especially in tech (bringing humanity forward with technology such as people like Musk do just fascinates me). I’m doing pretty well with programming and I would consider myself being intelligent and having the ability to be a very good computer science student. On the other hand, I’m also interested in economics AND I especially think that I have very good communication skills and I would do pretty well in business. Being an employee, I would prefer a job in business much more than in cs. I feel similar like the person making this video about an engineering job. Instead, managing other people, negotiating, talking to customers and things like these just kinda appeal to me (I know that you need a good degree to get a good job in business but since I get the best grades in school without literally doing anything I think that with hard work I can get a good degree). So, what do you guys think. What subject would you attend if you were me?

  28. Medical student take upto calculus and think they can do maths. They do not realize they only memorize like a machine

  29. if it was easier to get into med school i wouldve become a doc but I goofed off in school so the world lost the potentially greatest doc of all time

  30. Fantastic video, Im currently aiming to get my Bachelors in Business, and hopefully after getting my MD. But im now thinking to get my Bachelors in Biomedical Engineering since it has a more certain payout after graduating.

  31. Medicine is the only career where you get paid big bucks to guess at a solution for a problem!!! If that solution doesn't work, you get a second stab at it and still get paid. Not true for any other career choices.

  32. Mechanical engineer here, in my late twenties. I also chose my career by imagining what my future would be like. Had to chose between medicine and engineering. I didn't go in medicine because I didn't see myself enclosed in a small cubicle all day from 9 to 5 with sick people coming to see me to talk about their problems. I grew up watching Mega Construction and this is exactly what I'm doing now. I have tons of interaction with people (client, subs, engineering, QA department, etc), have to manage installation of huge components, man power, budget, schedule, safety, etc. My job allows me to travel to the Americas, Europe, Asia. I take the plane around 60 times per year. My girlfriend comes with me too. A lot of my friends are pharmacists, dentists and doctors, and I have nothing to envy salary wise. I'm in the clean energy sector so I get a huge sense of helping not 1 or 2 person at a time, but hundred of thousands at a time and society in general. My brother in law is in business and he travels even more. Of course my aunts would have prefered me to be a doctor, but I said fuck that.

  33. In business there is no limit for your potential revenue my friend is an entrepreneur and he made last year more than 1 million dollar just for him

  34. All the professionals are hired by a businessman.
    Actors, musicians, engineers, doctors, lawyers, politicians, policemen etc etc…

  35. I know I’m year late, but I’d recommend not doing business in college. Major in something you enjoy and work in applying it through business. That way you can create things you want to sell. For instance learn engineering and start a tech firm if you really want to do business. Practice in the real world is way better than a class room

  36. Im starting my major in business Administration this fall, I’m honestly scared shitless but I really wanna work hard and do well 😤

  37. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Elon Musk: Progress technology and provide a lot of opportunities

    Sheryl Sandberg: I wAnT MoRE wOMEn rIGhTs aND ImMiGrInTs

  38. Hello, im in my senior year of high school..
    Im really confused and lost about what to do as a job or what studies i should follow in the future. Well, at first i wanted to study something that has something to do with biology such as medical lab or being a doctor , but then i realized that for both of em you have to study 6-7 years of general medecine then specialize into medical lab (known as biologist doctor) or any other doctor speciality which is a lotta work , effort and years for me
    Since, I’d wanted something that is connected to the medical field i searched for biomedical engineering. Although, I have no idea if i like technology, instruments and computer science because i have no experience with those stuff. Also, Im a little bit okay with math and physics (let’s say i accept these subjects to study and get an average score on em but doesnt mean i love em or like em ) but i like chemistry and biology as well.
    The thing here is im afraid of what has to do with technology or electricity and all the things that has smth to do with hardware…

    Anyways, what i wanted to say in total, that im completely lost and i totally need someone’s opinion about my situation. In addition , I’d like to get some information about these fields or if anyone experienced or at least know any information about biomedical engineering or medecine… let me know it please, it would really really help.
    Idk if there’s anyone that lived or is living the same situation as mine …but i believe that lotta people fear failure as well…and that everyone searches for success and a bright future as me🙏🏻

    Lemme know in the comments if yall have any info that can help me..

    Thanks in advance🙏🏻

  39. Automotive mechanical engineer here with several doctors in the family. Liked the video. Current goal is to combine business with engineering. Regardless, I appreciate the respect doctors (often) give engineers. We certainly concede societal prowess to the MD tho. That being said, some doctors could benefit from our often very critical line of thinking!!

  40. Im a junior in hs and straight up with yall , really dont know what to decide . I want to be a aerospace engineer or petroleum engineer. Either ways ima persuade a career .

  41. The real money long term is "Materials Sciences". Forget medicine too many Democrat Socialists will sooner or later screw you out of your long term(even short term)dreams. Things like "Graphene" will eventually rule everything. The biggest factor is you and a belief that your own "think-outside-the-box" philosophy will enable you to form your own unique business.

  42. You are so smart, hardworking and lucky. You deserve it. Hopefully there will be more doctors who can become so at a cheaper rate.

  43. There's something wrong in this video…you have told that medicine and engineering both have specializations like no….engineering is field based major not by specialization….and you didn't tell about business specializations there's so so many HR, Marketing, Finance, Operation, Healthcare, Environment etc. This is such a big misconception that business degree is only for start business lol seriously?? And you are saying that there's no need of business degree wow! You can't be a manager without business management degree! And also if you talk about salary managers make more than engineers. Even in Asia there's lack of jobs for engineers, unemployment rate is high, on the other hand Managers are in high demand! Because none of the company, firm or even a hospital can't run without Healthcare and Hospital Managers. And what about Accountants huh? no one can beat accountants because they are in very high demand plus they earn so much salary and also get so many perks. Engineering is nothing in front of Business Management and Accountancy.

  44. I'm studying commerce currently and will study business HR Management and Environment & Energy Management (yes double major).

  45. Currently going through my second year of high school, going for mechanics engenieering, have a huge passion for cars, it is hard guys.

  46. so, i’m 13. yes its young so i “have time to decide”. i just got the option to apply for a scholarship in university that’s 6 years away and begin studying medicine as soon as i get to 9th grade, and all of my classes are honors, etc. i’m having an extremely hard time on whether i want to pursue medicine as a surgeon or get a general contracting license and a real estate license. i just dont what to do cause my mom wants me to go into medicine. for the pride. my dad just wants me to be happy and my brother wants me to make money so i dont have to suffer. we all know medicine costs more money than you make when you first start working, and general contracting starts making money fast but surgery is what i like. im very biased and id love advice

  47. I’m a premed student and I’m satisfied of what I’m doing /business is good but any company can face bankruptcy and close .

  48. I quit computer science because i wanna be a leader in business, which grants me unprecedented support to become impactful leader and no need to work for some loosers….life is too short fellow humans, leave a mark before ure gone or too late.

  49. Interesting. I too have been interested in these 3 fields for similar reasons. Biomedical: research on therapies that would allow us to live longer helthier lives
    Engineering: research on ai to use it for the same biomedical purposes
    Business: make a lot of money xd.
    Im now into engineering, but yeah i think md would suit me better. Its just that their work feels more serious. I mean as an engineer you build robotic arms and all, it feels like you are playing video games and i dont fucking like playing video games. But as a neurosurgeon you are into something that is a lot more serious. These people deal with serious issues all the time. I like that.
    Too bad i cant switch fields now. Im 24 and its too late for me. It seems that my only option now is ai research, at least that feels serious too.
    P.d. what im I doing here? I should be studying c++

  50. Why do doctors work long hours? Is it because there isn't enough doctors? Do doctors get over time? Is that why doctor’s salary high?

  51. 2 months into electrical engineering and somewhat disappointed. I enjoy programming and maths, but can't stand signals and circuits. Also, I feel like my peers lack ambition and drink way too much alcohol (and aren't very passionate about the subject). Thinking about applying to med school.

    I know it's a bat shit insane idea, to do both, study to the entrance exam to med school, and complete all the EE courses. But I believe I can pull it off if I can spend my time with great consistency and productivity.

  52. I’m 19, second year of civil engineering. This summer o started a mobile detailing business. For winter I am level 3 hockey official. Summer I Am intermediate bicycle technician. Own v7 wrx sti. I can’t wait to become an engineer and spend all my money on building a racecar😂

  53. My parents said i should list my top 5 courses i want to take in college so here's what i wrote:
    1. Civil Engineer (probably structural)
