Best Tips For Engineering Students:

1: Maintain good notes.

Engineering textbooks are huge and heavy, but get the knowledge precise. Read thoroughly and mark the essential things with a highlighter. After finishing your class keeps your most useful textbooks as a reference. Your notes and highlighting will be invaluable later. You might also write them in a notebook

2: Try knowing your professors.

Develop a good relationship with your professors so that you could feel comfortable and approach them for help.

3: Ask questions, reason things.

Ask for more examples to clarify concepts and tough equations. Your batch mates would like that, your professor would appreciate you and you would be learning.

4: Try solving a problem before you ask for help.

Even if the problem needs prolonged effort, try yourself before asking for help. If you seek help, it should be discussing doubts and not ask someone to solve the problem for you.

5: Study in a group.

Working alone can be boring and monotonous at times. Studying with others will let you know other viewpoints and help you think multi dimensionally; it will provide encouragement and team work at a time of frustration.

6: Teach someone the concepts.

One of the best ways of knowing whether you understand something is by explaining it to someone else. You need to prepare yourself best and be ready to be bombarded with doubts and in clearing their doubts; you could enhance your knowledge.

7: Take some classes outside engineering.

The most successful engineers are content learners, so broaden your skill set. A design class can help you represent information visually. A writing class can improve your communication with others. A business class will teach you leadership qualities and business ways.
