    Not only retakes, but that too. Kinda just learn how to take the exams by studying past exams and potential questions, etc. but don't really learn what I'm supposed to. :lol:

    You dont expect to actually know anything after a course do you??? You dont actually get to know anything until youve been doing the job for a while.

    All the theoretical stuff and ideal world builds you do ... mean jack in the real world.

    Yeah lol currently my sleep schedule is decent first class starts at 10:30 most days except today it starts at 7:30. Gunna skip my coding lab to finish my calc 3 homework because I work today. I’m computer engineering so I am currently taking

    Data abstractions
    Digital design
    Calc 3
    Physics 2

    You know absolutely nothing. Forget the term engineer. You're not an engineer. You're an engineer on paper not in the real world. It takes a good 10 years to even get to say you're an engineer and even then you're still green.

    You don't understand the amount of grads who come and say they are this and that. When in reality they can't even use a spanner. Are qualified to do so though on paper. It's disgusting how they get through. I know some lads who aren't all that up there but are great at solving issues mechanically and electrically. They get turned down. It's completely wrong.

    Alright pal. Calm down. Yeah experience is good and that's why going on a placement year is extremely beneficial. But in order to get there it's not like you're brain dead. What do you do by the way?

    That's not how it works. You get the "engineer" title by completing an engineering course. If you're not as good as people who aren't engineers (which I do agree is the case with most people because practical experience is vital) is a different matter.

    I'm a lift engineer for Otis. I'm their technician for the London branch. Don't have a degree but have a level 4 lift engineering certificate. I'm more competent than those with loads of certificates who think they know it all, give them a van and send them out on a job and next thing I know they are calling office up because they can't fault find correctly. It's really irritating because I'm 90% of the time asked to go to site and help them even though I already have a job going on. Have to drop all my tools to help a fool who walks through with a degree in engineering and in reality know F all.
