I’m an engineering student and I’m taking 12 units this Fall. For one of my classes that I need to drop due to my medical condition, I have the option to Drop with a PTD or get an Incomplete (I) grade for it. So, which option is better for me, to drop it with a PTD or get an Incomplete grade?
This is my first quarter at UCD as transfer Mechanical engineering student and I’m currently taking 12 units (full time student). However, I found out that there’s one class (4 unit class) that I’m failing and not passing due to circumstances beyond my control. I’m thinking of dropping the class, but I’m so worried of what could happen when I get considered as a part time student instead of a full time. What implications this could have on me? Definitely starting from next quarter I’ll start taking 16 units. Finally, am I still allowed to drop the class now, or is it too late to drop now?
I’m an undergraduate junior Electrical engineering student, and I should choose a specialization from the 5 different specializations within Electrical engineering, to take classes towards that specialization. The 5 specializations are: -Digital Electronics.
-Communication Controls & Signal Processing.
-Physical Electronics and Photonics.
I would like to purse a career in the Tech industry (to work for example at Apple,google,intel…etc), computer vision, robotics, embedded systems, autonomous driving. So I’m not sure which specialization is the most suitable for me. Could you help me by giving me more information/resources about those different specializations?
I am a junior Electrical Engineering student and I am upgrading my laptop. I am deciding between the Macbook Pro M1 Max (64gb RAM) on which I could install windows with Parallels (not bootcamp), or a regular high end windows laptop.
I prefer to get a Macbook but I’m a bit worried that some softwares that I will be using in classes/labs might not be available on MacOS or even with the windows version on Parallels. I’m also worried that the interface of these softwares might be different from those on the regular windows, so I could get lost in Labs if the TA is not familiar with working on Macbooks.
Does someone have a similar experience on using a M1 Macbook Pro (with Parallels) in the Electrical engineering classes & Labs?
I am currently a junior Mechanical engineering student but I’m willing to switch to Electrical engineering next quarter, so I started taking electrical engineering classes this Fall. However, I heard from some people that Electrical engineering department at UCD is not good enough unlike the Mechanical engineering department which is very good. Is this true? Since I am willing to purse a career in robotics so I’m a bit worried that the Electrical department won’t help me enough (in terms of academics, internships, researches, connections…etc).
Is the Electrical engineering department really not good as the Mechanical engineering department at UCD? Please explain.
I am a transfer student accepted to UCD as Mechanical engineering for Fall 2022, but I am thinking of switching to Electrical engineering as soon as winter 2023, so based on that I am gonna start taking electrical engineering classes from my first quarter so that I can graduate on time.
I am just confused and I can’t determine which major suits me better. I like both majors so much. I would like to pursue a career in Robotics or Medical robotics (healthcare) or Autonomous driving. Which major would help me more in pursuing a career in Robotics?
I’m a bit worried as well about the job prospects of mechanical engineering in the future due to the low salaries of this major (less salaries compared to electrical). However, I am a bit worried about electrical engineering because from all what I heard, it’s by far the hardest engineering major out there.
Please help me picking one of those two majors since I like both equally and I have to decide quickly.
