I didn’t get in….Now What? (Dealing with Rejection Letters)

The possibility, and very probable reality that you may not get into the program or school of your choice is not talked about enough. A lot of times we hear of the success stories, we talk about our peers admissions and we post about our accomplishments. Very rarely do you see a Facebook post from a friend that says “I didn’t get into engineering!”. There is an obvious reason for this, and that is simply explained by human nature, we don’t celebrate what we perceive to be a ‘failure’ or ‘step ba

Choosing to apply to medical school

Today is a bit of a different blog, I am going to discuss why I am applying to medical school. As you know from my last blog entries, you know that I have always thought about the idea of medical school and entertained the thought that if I wanted to try after graduation, I could. To go to medical school you need and undergraduate degree, that’s how I ended up in engineering and although I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every part of the schooling, loved the work terms I completed, an

Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering: What We Do

If you’ve been following along you probably know that I am an engineer by now. More specifically I graduated from the Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering (ONAE) program at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Almost everybody, apart from those in or teaching the program, will ask ‘So what do you do?’ And I’m here to tell you all about it! First off, yes, the ONAE program is a degree and it is accredited the same as your basic mechanical and civil engineering degrees. In my personal op

Coop Program and Placements

Hey Guys! Today I am going to write about my experience with the engineering coop program. I am only familiar with the engineering programs in Canada and most are generally the same layout at a high level. There are some minor differences in the length of programs, types of disciplines offered and finally the coop option but basically not much else differs logistically. Lets talk about the last thing, coop!!   COOP So. My undergraduate degree was completed at a university wh

Choosing a Discipline: Mechanical, Civil, Process!?

I know many of you reading this blog post might not have the option to choose an engineering discipline right out of high school. However, maybe you do and/or maybe you’ll refer to this blog post when you must decide later down the road. The university I attended offered 6 undergraduate disciplines to choose from at the end of engineering one, the general eng year that covers all first year courses like math physics and chemistry. Many universities, including mine, have students go through

Decision Making: How I chose Engineering against all other options

To explain how I choose engineering out of high school I am going to paint you a picture of my personal journey and maybe parts, if not all of it, will sound familiar to where you are to in your life or, where you may find yourself in the days, months, or years to come. In high school I did very good academically. I didn’t find high school overly challenging, I studied for all my exams and got great marks. I, unlike most students but maybe like some, was conflicted between science based pro

Should I/Can I do Engineering School?

Hello Everyone! If you are reading this post it means that you are curious, interested or intrigued about a career in Engineering or something related. I am only 23 years old and I have completed an engineering degree in Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering and simultaneously received a minor in mathematics! Now I am working full time for the Canadian Coast Guard! I choose engineering right out of high school and was successful in getting into the degree program right away. I didn
