Kia ora! So I hope that you have all been enjoying the posts I have been making this year and that I was able to give you a slight “appetizer” of the software life. I hope that you also checked out the other blogger’s posts too because everyone has been contributing a lot of great…Continue Reading Time to Decide?
This Is What I Learned In My Second Semester Engineering Science Classes
We’re doing a Round Two of our favourite segment of these editorials, Tyler White Tries to Teach You Everything That He Learned in His Semester Two Classes (not including electives since you won’t necessarily do MECHENG 211 and I’m too lazy to teach that) ENGGEN 204: Managing Design and Communication I like to think of…Continue Reading This Is What I Learned In My Second Semester Engineering Science Classes
Kia ora everyone, Well, it sure has been an intense couple of weeks. I have had pretty much zero time to blog, as we have all been busy with our SOFTENG 206 design project and studying for tests. To be honest, it’s been a pretty good semester, with so many good memories made, but I…Continue Reading Survivors
Second year Done and Dusted
What a year it has been! For this post, I thought I would break down the reasons for why you should or shouldn’t choose Mechanical Engineering. Let’s start off with the pros: Mechanical Engineering is one of the core engineering disciplines, meaning that the scope for Mechanical Engineers is vast. Students seem to have the…Continue Reading Second year Done and Dusted
The end of another year, already?
The end of the year is coming up fast now, and if you’re reading this, it probably means that you’re trying to decide whether CHEMMAT is the right specialisation for you. Choosing can be tricky for a lot of people, but I think my biggest piece of advice would be to not be afraid to…Continue Reading The end of another year, already?
What a Year It’s Been
I honestly can’t believe that this year is almost over, and it’s nearly time for you to choose your specialisations for next year. It doesn’t seem like that long ago when I was in your position trying to toss up the pros and cons of a few of my favourite papers from the year. I’m…Continue Reading What a Year It’s Been
Engineering Science ≡ Suffering (I’m being serious. This isn’t a joke)
Engineering Science ≡ Frustration Frustration is a staple ingredient in the computer programming diet. Programming is a staple ingredient in the Engineering Science diet. Therefore, frustration is normal in the Engineering Science degree. I’ve already written about that. Engineering Science ≡ Failure You must have ambition and brains if you’re thinking of signing up for Engineering…Continue Reading Engineering Science ≡ Suffering (I’m being serious.

Semester Two of EEE, One Final Exam!
Hi everyone. Hope semester two has been well for you so far. Please check out the video above before reading this post. I would argue semester 2 of Part II Computer Systems Engineering and Electrical and Electronic Engineering is very different to all other specialisation. We only have one final exam this semester but that…Continue Reading Semester Two of EEE, One Final Exam!
Out of the Frying Pan and Into the Fire
Sorry for the long wait since the last post, guys – it’s been rough. But before I get into that long story, I’d say a re-evaluation of this semester’s Mechatronics courses is an order: MECHENG 211, aka Thermofluids: well dayumm, the third years weren’t kidding when they said it was the hardest course in second…Continue Reading Out of the Frying Pan and Into the Fire
Semester 2 so far
Hi everyone! We are halfway through the second semester and its getting busy. We have our 209 project and labs due every week for 209. However, the labs help us understand the project specifications and allows us to do the project tasks with a little ease but it still is pretty hectic. We have tests…Continue Reading Semester 2 so far
