I took a semester off of school after earning my Associates degree to just relax and work basically. I started back the semester after just part time taking 2 classes, and i've been a full time student this semester.

Don't worry about having to take a semester off to do your internship. Once you land your internship i'm sure you will basically feel like you're in school still anyways, generally speaking.

If getting that internship is difficult, get into your advisors office and make them assist you in finding your temporary job. If your school doesn't have much to offer when it comes to internship assistance then put your advisor on the spot and ask, "how am I supposed to finish out my degree since I can't even land an internship?" That's what I would do anyways. You're paying them the big bucks, make them do something more than just sit in their chairs and talk to you.

The watermelon smoothies are delicious. The fried chicken ones take some getting used to, but you can't argue with tradition. I find them easier to ingest if you wash it down with some grape soda a loose Newport (or Kool, if you're more than half black).

Yea, I got an appointment this Wednesday. Gonna see what I can do to finish up since I don't think I want to work in the construction industry anyway. I didn't really grow up with it like all the other students in the program did, but oh well, it's a degree.

Estimating is actually what I wanted to get into, I really liked the courses I took on it. I should be able to finish my degree though, my advisor said students have been able to present their cases in the past and graduate.

I'm actually in the process of enlisting right now, I guess I didn't learn my lesson about the military the first time around

I just finished off two years of Plumbing/Pipefitting apprenticeship course(got 2000 hours in both trades) and I'm starting a 5-week work term at a mid-sized commercial plumbing company.

Anyone considering university, but aren't 100 percent on it..consider a TRADE! Jobs after university are not as abundant as they once were..

Depends, though. Step out on an empty field and whisper "I've got an engineering degree" around here and you'll need a snorkel to survive the crowd.

Strange, last time I checked it wasn't really the case around here, with all the damn Indians producing engineers and such.

Yea, but we've had a combination of declining birth rates and a lot of drop-outs from the engineering programs. In my particular field, the average rate of graduates is four per year and we tend do disperse over a large part of the world.

Therefore, according to maths and science and such, engineers get more poontang. That explains why my degree in media studies has been so ineffectual in securing sexual congress within the fanjinas of girlfolk.

In your particular field you plant turnips, then when they mature to full size you paint a face on them and call them Wilson and hold mock political elections and debates with them which you only win about 60% of the time because you're Swedish.

Any electricians here? For some reason I always had a weird nagging in the back of my mind to get into it, but I know it'd simply lead to my fatal electrocution because of my tendency to lick things which are new to me.

I had a class on it before, supposedly to be an electrician's apprentice you need to have an IQ of about 60. I couldn't get my shit straight in the lab for that class. We had to make a double switch circuit for a light bulb, I fucked it up so bad my light exploded.

hahaha That's hilarious, d'q'. My husband was in electric classes at vo-ed and they used to wire metal toolboxes to circuit boards and shock each other. One of his best friends there became a nuke. Lots of years later when hubby was teaching at a Navy reserve center he worked with an electrician for some side cash since he was fluent in ac&r work. My grandpa worked for the local power company, too. He went to Case Western Reserve for his schooling, and after he retired he did ac&r work, too.
Me? I rewired a lamp and used the wrong cycle system or something like that and when I plugged it in I blew out the power in half the house and it would only work half power in other parts. It took my husband hours to trace it because the fuse that blew was close to the floor joists in the basement and it was too dark to see it was bad. lol I've only wired about half a dozen lamps, but I got the wrong type this one time. I won't do that again!

Anyone who wishes to know at what angle the sun's beam radiation hits a particular surface inclined at a particular angle, at a particular time, at a particular place and then do the integral calculations necessary to use this information along with other factors in order to calculate the total amount of solar energy that can be expected from a particular sort of solar cell.
This I can do and can therefore do not understand why you do not worship me like the shamans and wisemen of old.

From my particular field we throw the largest phallic symbols any culture has even conceived of at the sky, which equals automatic win regardless of how many elections we win.

Sort of halfway to electrician status, at the moment. It's fun to watch the sparks fly.

On a more serious note, I know a few engineers that cannot find jobs in their field.
