Fitting the pieces together
It’s like a puzzle! I’m assuming the majority of you have absolutely no idea what specialisation you want to go into; the coding projects was satisfying so should I do software, the dynamics experiment was fun so should I do mechanical, the truss project was interesting so should I do Civil? What do I do…Continue Reading Fitting the pieces together
A steep journey into second year
The struggle is real! As you may or may not know, my home town is Dunedin! Dunedin is known for its great student culture and the steepest street in the world, Baldwin Street! Well, Engineering Science is a bit of both. What do you mean?? If you thought first year was tough, it only gets…Continue Reading A steep journey into second year

The S in Engineering stands for Socialising
Hey guys, First and foremost, let me apologise for my hiatus; the heat has well and truly been ON this semester and I regrettably neglected this blogging role for several weeks. Fret not though, instead you should prepare for three high quality engsci posts to come at you thick and fast over the next few…Continue Reading The S in Engineering stands for Socialising
Expert knowledge (((on computational engineering)))
Hey, remember this handy Venn diagram? View post on imgur.com Cool, right? Now, it’s almost time to learn a bit more about one of those fancy terms on the diagram! But first, a light preamble… A few weeks ago, in an ENGSCI 263 lecture, we were introduced to the term ‘expert knowledge’. In the context…Continue Reading Expert knowledge (((on computational engineering)))
Here’s a collection of stuff that semester 1 threw at me!
