YOU’RE JUST AN “APPLIED SCIENTIST”

As some of you may know (from my rather concise bio), I study engineering, and it has been a running joke on my floor that us engineering students are simply “applied scientists”. This has gotten on my nerves, since it has made me feel a bit self conscious about engineering and has made me question whether it is even the right fit for me. But after much deliberation, I have made peace with the statement “applied scientist”, after realising that I do indeed love engineering, and that it is so much more than just the application of science. So what better way to introduce engineering than to go through each of the courses I studied last semester?

THINGS I WISH I’D KNOWN BEFORE STARTING SCHOOL

It’s easy to put things off and push them to the back of your mind – until you check the websites and the due dates have passed, or you don’t have time to organise referees! I missed out on several scholarships I would have qualified for simply because I wasn’t on the ball. If you can, try to get references or letters from your teachers ahead of time (before the influx of people just days before deadlines). You can look for scholarships on the link below and narrow down your results (undergraduate, by faculty, etc) and put the dates in your calendar so you don’t forget. Check in with your school as well to see if they know of any available scholarships. It’s so easy to fall out of the loop, and you never know what you might have missed! Trust me, once you get to uni, you’ll realize every penny counts.
