What Engineering Has Taught Me? 

There is a list of things that engineering taught me. Basically, I was a PCMB student during my junior college i.e. in 11th and 12th, and not at all wanted to de an engineer nor even thought that I could be an engineer. I wanted to become a doctor and unable to take admission to medical college due to low score in the entrance exam and due to unaffordable fees of private medical college. But I scored very well in the engineering entrance of my state. Then I took admission to engineering college. You can say I chose my profession as engineering just because I didn’t have any option. 

After all fishy things happened in my life, I was not at all excited or happy while coming for engineering. After that introduction session of colleges which is also known as the induction program of college started and along with this induction program my attraction and excitement towards engineering also started. During the induction of the college different college activities including competitions, general knowledge tests, fun activities were carried out. Eventually, I started developing an interest in engineering. And after some time I realized that engineering is the profession that I wanted to choose from deep inside my heart and also I actually have the required skills that one should need to become a good engineer. So, the first thing engineering has taught me is – 

“God Never Gives You What You Want But Always Gives You What You Deserve And Best For You”

The city where my college is located is one of the metro cities in India. As I am a small-town girl, I was a bit nervous. I haven’t even seen the big city ever before. I was feeling low confident. But  I was very strong in terms of academics, values, and etiquette, which really helped me to acquire a position and image in my college and society. Actually, Engineering gave me confidence and self-respect.

When actual teaching and studying sessions were started along with the practicals, we all have to study with patience and here study doesn’t mean reading books, writing notes, learning pages, and pages but the study of engineering simply means taking knowledge of different test cases, applications of different concepts. Engineering is totally applied science. Though you are topper of your school, it is not at all compulsory that you will come first during your engineering also. This could make you feel down sometimes but you should be consistent. You have to work with full energy and shouldn’t lose your confidence. This will actually help you to score well and to learn many more things than your expectations. So this time of engineering taught me –

“Work Hard In Silence, Let Your Success Make Noise!”

Being a biology student, I didn’t have any idea about programming. During my first practical of my FPL lab i.e. Fundamentals Of Programming Languages Lab, I was just about to cry when I saw many girls of my class are doing programming with full speed and accuracy, and me being a topper of my school not even know how to open Eclipse ide. That day when I return to the hostel back, I was crying for an hour. Then my roommate who is senior to me by a year came back from college. She saw me crying. She gave me confidence that I can do it. She also promised to help me. And she actually helping me now also. She proved herself a very close friend, philosopher, and guide of mine. With the her help I learn programming. Engineering also gave me many friends not only temporary but for a lifetime. I used to do programming for 1-2 hours daily and now I am one of the best coders pf my college. I actively participate in many hackathons and also scoring a good rank in them. All credit goes to my senior – “Sayali Di”. So by this time, engineering taught me-

“Work Hard In Silence, Let Your Success Make Noise!”

From the second year and onwards when your actual professional subjects start, you come across the totally new, knowledge, and amplitude-based subjets. Back-bencher or the students whom the entire class was actually considering as a loser, suddenly start achieving good grades and pointers. These subjects actually test your intelligence and mental strength, not your learning capacity. So another thing you will learn during this time of engineering is –

“Don’t Underestimate Anyone!”

“Don’t Judge The Book By Its Cover!!”

During this time from the third semester to eight semester you will realize that what is the importance of being persistent. Here I actually mean being persistent in terms of learning new things and being better with every day. Your marks will not affect your future but your skills and values will. If you will give yourself to engineering, engineering will give you many things in return beyond your expectations. So in the ending, I would like to say that- Engineering is the science of life, It will teach you each and everything for a better life. From success to failer, from profit to loss, from ethical hacking to non-ethical frauds, each and everything!!!
