Hey all! This week I’m happy to bring you an absolutely fantastic guest article from Tom Miller.

Tom is an engineer and physics tutor obsessed with independent learning. He writes about unconventional study methods at WTF Professor , aimed at simplifying the learning process for engineers and technical students.

I first met Tom a few months ago when he emailed me with some questions on starting his own blog. In the short time between then and now, I’ve seen WTF Professor turn into an awesome resource for any student who’s interested in hacking their learning methods.  On to you, Tom!

Isn’t it funny, that when you tell older people you’re doing an engineering degree, that they tend to only have one of three responses:

  • “Ooooh you must be so smart.”
  • “It’s gonna be so easy for you to find a job when you leave college.”
  • “Smartypants. You’re going to make the big bucks.”

For them, it’s the logical choice. Little Johnny’s gonna grow up and build robots and have job security. That’s what they see on the outside.

But little do they know, the insider’s world is a whole different ballgame.

Before freshman year started, the picture was so rosy. Everyone was encouraging. Mom and dad were happy. High school friends congratulated you on your brilliance.

“You’ve always been good at math. This will be perfect for you.”

But within a week of starting classes, the reality of the situation starts to hit. The wonderful story everyone has been telling you doesn’t look so wonderful anymore, as upperclassmen start to come out of the woodwork.

  • “Engineers have no life.”
  • “All you guys do is study!”
  • “I had a roommate who stayed up for 2 weeks straight and lived in the computer lab!!!”

Doubt creeps in as you start to wonder, “Am I really cut out for this?”

The truth is, both sides have it wrong. The reality is this:

Yes, engineering school is hard.

Yes, you have to put in the time.

Yes, the exams are sometimes ridiculous (e.g. a 37% was the class average on my first Vibrations exam).

But it’s doable . And if you learn the approach, stay diligent, and do the right work, you not only will graduate, but excel – and leave your Econ major buddies wondering how in the hell you did it because you were out with them every Friday night.

Now, based on my extremely professional, authoritative, expert opinion, there are 3… no actually 4 key frameworks that – if you master – will unlock the secrets of the annoyingly super-productive engineering student.

1. Learning to play the game

Engineering school is a game. And like most games, it has rules, a score, and levels. But also like most games, it can be optimized . There are strategies and shortcuts that go beyond simply going to class and doing the homework. Learn to play it.

2. Hacking the learning process

These are the best practices top engineering students stumble upon. Platitudes like “find a quiet place” or “use a study buddy” have no place here. The brain is a learning machine and hacking that machine means the difference between the dude who never seems to “study” but destroys the curve, and the students who spend hours at the library on weekends but just manage to scrap by.

3. Completing group projects without being charged for homicide

You can master the game. You can become a learning machine. But nothing can derail your confidence and progress like a horrible group project experience. Resentment. Spiteful all-nighters. Pain. It can all be avoided if you prepare yourself beforehand.

4. Landing an awesome entry-level job

A complete and utter mystery for us analytical folk. Should I go to the career fair? What should I say? Should I do research? What about internships? Learn the truth about how to find the good ones.

Framework 1: Learn to play the game

If you’ve spent any amount of time at all in the engineering building(s) at your school, I’m sure you’ve come across the zombies .

The homework zombies, that is.

The individuals who seem to spend every waking minute in the ASME lounge, books strewn about, head in hands, looking like they’re about to be told they’ve just lost their life’s savings after not sleeping for a week…

You know, this guy?

Sleeping under desk

Contrary to popular belief, this is not the inevitable life of the dedicated engineering student, but actually the result of some less-than-optimal choices about how to approach your engineering program.

You can have good grades, sleep, and a social life (well, at least among other engineers), despite what business majors will tell you.

Step 1: Before the semester starts, study the syllabus and do an 80/20 on your grade.

It’s late. Friday night. So naturally you and your roommate do what every other normal college student does on a Friday night.

Challenge each other to a Super Mario deathmatch.

The stakes are high (pride is on the line here), so you start thinking strategy.

What should you do?

Well, probably figure out some combination of speed vs. risk of death, and try your damnest to finish each level as fast as possible.

You’re definitely not going to just jump in and indiscriminately start collecting coins, ignoring the fact that you could die at any moment by way of a stray turtle shell or angry Goomba.

Goomba

Well it’s the same story in your coursework.

If you walk into Physics II, attempting to take on every single scrap of textbook reading, ace 100% of your Mastering Physics homework (kill me), do all the recommended practice problems (Gauss’ Law – seriously is this really necessary?), you will destroy your brain and any semblance of a real existence you hoped to have in college (yes, studies have shown this – my own personal studies on myself…).

The point is, classes are goal-oriented .

Yes, we all want to “learn,” “expand our horizons,” “other platitude you hear on your campus tour.” But we’re not in school just to satisfy our intellectual curiosity. If you’re just interested in that, why not pick up a textbook in your free time? Or spend thousands of hours on Google, Wikipedia and Youtube where you can find virtually everything you can expect to be taught in any engineering curriculum. Learning on your own is easy .

So when we say, “I want to learn engineering,” you’re really saying is, “I want to study the specific things about engineering that I need to know in order to get my degree with a respectable GPA.”

It’s the same as saying “I want to get good at Super Mario.” What you really mean is: “I want to get good at finishing levels as quickly as possible, and defeating Bowser at the end.”

And as you’ll find, it’s a more effective approach to learning anyway. Humans are goal-directed animals. Establish a target or a problem to solve and our brains immediately start churning on it.

The more clear and focused the goal, the faster you can develop a strategy and start taking action towards it. You might even set a world record in the process.

So all of this is to say that before you even start the semester, there are two things you can do to 80/20 your course, a. la. Tim Ferriss ( per Mr. Pareto ).

First, get your hands on a syllabus as soon as possible. Identify the few key assignments that are going to heavily determine your grade.

Two exams determine 60% of the grade.

The top spot is, of course, usually reserved for the final exam, or in some cases the final project report/presentation for project-based courses.

  • Then midterms
  • Then quizzes
  • Then homework assignments (problem sets)
  • Potentially “class attendance” (whatever that means)

What do most students spend the vast majority of their time working on and stressing over?

That’s right: homework assignments! The least, or second-least, important component of your grade.

Hence, zombies.

Zombie

Zombies dedicating large 5-hour chunks of Friday nights towards assignments that make up 0.42% of their grade.

Yes, yes I know what you’re going to say:

“But homework problems are the absolute best practice for the exams. If you don’t spend hours and hours on the homework you’ll failllll…”

Okay, somewhat true. Focused practice solving problems likely to show up on the exam is just about the most effective use of time grade-wise you can invest as an engineering student.

But in many cases homework problems give you the run-around, and 50% of those problems will never ever show up on an exam.

Which is why you should…

Step 2: Look for past exams on Koofers

Don’t you wish sometimes your professor could just show you what’s going to be on the final at the beginning of the semester, so that you can just cut to the chase? Start studying now, instead of waiting for 2+ months of anxiety?

Well there’s actually nothing stopping you from doing that.

It just takes a little digging (and not much really to be honest) and you can have 20 final exams in your hands that represent pretty much everything you would see on your Calc final.

Koofers

From that point you can “reverse engineer” what you need to focus on for the course. Organize the exam problems by topic area and make sure you’re hitting practice problems that cover what you’re seeing on past exams.

Professors have time constraints like everyone else, and really aren’t that imaginative when it comes to developing new and innovative exam problems.

( Note: you can also go and sign up for engineering societies like ASME or others that usually have file cabinets full of exams.)

Framework 2: Hack your learning

Knowing what to spend your time on is of primary importance. But now that you know exactly which exams or assignments will most impact your grade, and have gotten a glimpse into what problems you will have to master for the exams, it’s time to get more efficient.

I’m talking about stuffing new information into your head twice as fast as typical students, who, while well-meaning, fail to learn efficiently because they dive in with whatever horrible study advice they picked up from grade school, parents, friends, etc. and don’t adopt a strategy.

There are best practices out there, folks. And here are the key ones for technical students.

Step 1: Use the 1-2 lecture prep punch to maximize your retention of new material.

The night before class, do a google search on the next thing up on the syllabus. Don’t try to learn it all, just read through the Wikipedia page and the basic information, and generate a list of 10 questions.

L'Hopital's Rule

Now you’ve started your brain in motion and your sub-conscious will be churning on that new topic while you sleep before lecture the next day.

Then, get to lecture 5 minutes early and do a brain dump before class. If you just waltz into class without any sort of preparation, your brain is sitting idle, unreceptive to the completely foreign concepts about to fly your way.

As creative educator Harry Lloyd Miller wrote back in 1927,

“Lecturing is that mysterious process by means of which the contents of the note-book of the professor are transferred through the instrument of the pen to the note-book of the student without passing through the mind of either.”

This doesn’t have to be you.

Before lecture, take 5 minutes and a blank sheet of paper, and write down absolutely anything you can think of related to the topic of discussion for the day.

It doesn’t matter how idiotic you find yourself (and sometimes I even surprise myself with how idiotic that actually is). Just keep writing, drawing diagrams, or doodling about topics covered in last lecture.

By doing this, you’re kick-starting your mental circuits around the topic and initiating the questioning process, creating an anchor point for new learning, identifying exactly what you do and don’t know about a particular topic, and training your MacGyver-like powers of conjuring understanding out of nothing.

Step 2: Learn deeply by cracking the code of worked problems using the Reverse Learning Technique.

Fed up with reading the textbook? Most engineers are. We’re supposed to be out there tinkering, right? Building stuff and being all technical and whatnot?

How frustrating can it be to spend hours in lecture only to feel like you still have no idea how to do the homework problems?

The problem is, this isn’t really how we’re wired to learn. We’re wired to learn by doing.

One method of doing this is reverse engineering stuff – peeling back the layers from a finished product to try to gain insights into the structure, process, and technology that underlies it.

Reverse Learning works in much the same way. It’s a technique for working backwards from the solution to a complex homework problem or potential test question to a set of related core concepts (lecture and textbooks work the opposite way).

Red and Blue Marks

The benefit: this is much much deeper learning than you would ever achieve by staring at your lecture notes and textbook diagrams.

Plus, this is how it works once you graduate into the real world of engineering. You have to figure things out by looking at other people’s solutions, and recognizing the patterns of activity.

Editor’s note: This applies to all sorts of things. The main way I’ve learn how to make the videos on my YouTube channel in such high quality is through watching other polished videos and analyzing their components.

Work your way through the toughest problems you can get your hands on in this way, and you’ll develop the ability to look at a problem, recall what phenomena are acting, and apply a core set of formulas.

Step 3: Use Active Recall. Test your knowledge early and often.

Ever wonder why you can take pages and pages of notes, read the entire textbook, and sit through hours of lecture, but fail to answer virtually any question about the material immediately afterwards?

We run into this unfortunate situation because we think of ourselves like sponges – we’ll somehow absorb this new (albeit extremely uninteresting) information as it washes over us like a warm bath.

As the professor keeps droning on, it’s a fight to pay attention. Your focus drifts and your brain is off to the races about anything and everything besides the new material (Who won the game last night? What should I have for lunch? Is that guy sleeping?).

This is what we call passive learning : the antithesis to efficiently digesting new information.

The solution: something we call active recall (not to be confused with Total Recall ).

Listen to Cal Newport, author of How to Win at College , break it down for us:

So first, start with a problem from your study materials, making sure not to look at the solution beforehand.

Then try your best to come up with the solution method and steps off the top of your head, without any supporting materials. Do the best you can and even guess if you have to. Write down what you can, and then go back and verify whether you were correct with the actual solution.

Use Reverse-Learning to understand the underlying concepts and solution techniques first, but then repeat this Active Recall process throughout the semester and you’ll be very prepared for seeing and responding to tough questions on the exam.

Step 4: Rehearse your performance. Become a conditioned machine for attacking test problems.

“Most of the time students spend studying for exams in the traditional way is wasted because they aren’t practicing what they’ll have to do on the test.” ~Adam Robinson, author of What Smart Students Know

What’s the one thing you always hear from otherwise smart and hard-working engineering students following a tough exam?

“I know the stuff. I always do well on projects and problem sets. I just don’t test well.”

We can all empathize. Testing really doesn’t make too much sense in the whole scheme of developing as an engineer.

But like we’ve already discussed – engineering school is a game. And a huge chunk of that game, whether you like it or not, is test performance : the ability to walk in there, not freak out, and regurgitate specific information under extreme time pressure.

Think of it this way. It wouldn’t make too much sense to hear from a PGA tour pro:

“Man, I can really stripe the ball on the range, and sink 30 foot putts on the practice green. So I know that I have the skill. I just don’t play well on the course…”

So think of exams more like a performance. Forget “studying” and focus on “rehearsal.” This means recreating, as closely as you can, the exact test conditions and timing.

And don’t fool yourself into thinking that just because you’ve been able to do a few problems successfully in the past, that you’ll be able to do the same thing on test day. Performance anxiety is a bitch (you know what I’m talking about – that sweaty-palms, holy-shit-I-know-nothing, think you’re going to die feeling).

So not only do you need to rehearse (a la Active Recall), but you also need to do it under time pressure , and do it often. As Tony Robbins says,

“Repetition is the mother of skill.”

And intelligent, focused repetition, is the key to developing your test-taking chops in the shortest amount of time.

Framework 3: How to get through group projects and capstones without resorting to violence or blackmail

This is actually amazing practice for working with un-motivated co-workers, which is an inevitability of life you’ll soon discover upon graduation.

But seriously, group projects suck bad. Real bad. However, you can make the best of them.

Look, you’re going to have the guy who’s taken the class 2 times before. You’re also probably going to have the one guy who is painfully socially awkward. So don’t expect miracles.

Assume that you’re going to have to be the one who pushes the project forward from the outset, and you won’t be in for any unexpected surprises, frustration, or let-downs.

Take control – this is your education.

Here’s what to do:

Step 1: Make a schedule.

Take this as a great opportunity to teach yourself how to use Microsoft Project. Or just map it out by hand. Or use Trello .

Whatever you do, split the project up into multiple deliverables and set intermediate target dates for specific work items (e.g. week 1: brainstorming, week 2: research, week 3: preliminary simulation due, etc.).

Every single college engineering project I participated in ended up in a mad-scramble midnight dash. And ever single time it was entirely a result of poor planning (actually, no planning).

Step 2: Set up regular on-campus weekly meetings, preferably during the day.

Once you have your deliverables outlined, you’ll have something to work towards on a weekly basis. And despite you and your teammates’ best intentions you WILL NOT – I repeat WILL NOT – work on the project until the last minute unless you have a weekly check-in.

Other classes, exams, tailgating, meet-ups, whatever, will always always seem to get in the way unless you can all get together and be held accountable in-person.

Volunteer to do this unless someone else in your group has a burning desire to run the meetings. Being able to organize and run a technical team is probably the single most valuable skill you can develop in preparation for the real engineering world.

Plus, it puts you in the driver’s seat so you won’t have to rely on someone else remembering to do it.

Organize your meetings around your schedule deadlines, set an agenda beforehand by email, and make sure to assign and record next actions that each team member has committed to for the upcoming week.

Yes, it’s more work and somewhat of a headache to round everyone up and deal with the inevitable absences and excuses. But you’ll set yourself up extremely well for Steps 3 and 4.

Step 3: Hold your teammates accountable to getting their shit done on time.

There’s no magic here. If your group is meeting consistently, and agreeing on deliverables for each team member, there aren’t too many excuses to be had. If you’re real, honest, and straightforward in your communication, most people will get on-board quickly and realize that it’s in everyone’s best interest to do their part on time.

But, on the other hand, if they don’t get their part of the project done, take control .

We’re not trying to cultivate company culture here; we’re trying to learn and get a good result. Pick up your teammate’s slack if you have to. If nothing else, they’ll at least feel guilty enough for not contributing that they might even be compelled to write the final report for you.

Step 4: Turn in product and testing deliverables early.

Not because it’s just “good” to get things done early, but because turning in product and testing deliverables to class TA’s or professors early allows you the (golden) opportunity to get feedback and be able to iterate before turning it in.

They’re usually just happy to see that students are putting in the effort, and usually end up giving you feedback that is directly correlated with what they’re looking for – i.e. MORE POINTS.

This will set you way way ahead of your other classmates, who by nature of doing last-minute dashes the day before the due date, have to essentially turn in a first draft without getting that valuable feedback.

That could mean the difference between a 75 and a 95.

Framework 4: Get internships and build stuff – how to guarantee yourself a cool-ass job by getting legit engineering experience

To say there are a lot of misconceptions about what companies are looking for in new engineering hires is an understatement.

  • Do I need a good GPA?
  • What classes do I take?
  • What if my degree doesn’t match up with the job requirements?
  • I didn’t do any undergraduate research – am I screwed?
  • Should I get an internship, or do a co-op?

And the Career Center at your school is probably not much of a help either.

“Really? Is a resume workshop really going to land me a job at 3M or Microsoft or Black & Decker?”

From my perspective, there are 3 things that will significantly contribute to landing a great job after graduation. And none of them involve – thank god – business cards or networking events.

  • Demonstrate your ability to do hands-on work in a real environment and contribute to a company in a significant way
  • Stand out by completing remarkable projects
  • Develop your “natural” network

I’ll focus on #1 and #2 here. There are plenty of amazing materials on the long-game of networking out there ( here , here , and here for example).

Step 1: Demonstrate you can do work

There must be a question on r/EngineeringStudents literally every day asking one thing:

“How do I get an internship/entry-level job?”

And half of them are asking about GPA.

  • “What if I have a 2.5? Will anyone ever hire me?”
  • “Do I need a 4.0??”

Most companies feel more comfortable with someone who knows “how to work.” Now this can be an engineering internship, but it could also be working summers for the family business… or at Pita Pit…

The questions running through their head when they interview you will include:

  • Can you get along with people?
  • Have you built stuff in the past?
  • Can you show up on time?
  • Are you going to be a weirdo?

Now you’re probably thinking, “Yea, okay I’ll do all that and they’ll say, ‘There are 100 other students exactly like this person.'”

That’s where uniqueness comes in.

Step 2: Stand out

Bottom line: you need to do some cool shit.

It doesn’t matter how hard it was. No one is going to care whether you did it over a weekend, or whether it took you 200 hours.

If you make something that grabs someone’s attention (or is “remarkable” in Seth Godin speak ), you’ll stand out head and shoulders above everyone else who has the same Fluent simulation or power-tool improvement project on their resume.

The most compelling job application I’ve ever seen came across my desk 2 summers ago (I work at a small manufacturing company in the Automotive business). It was a rather sparse resume, with a GPA listed as “2.7” with a link prominently displayed that said something to the tune of “custom robot hand integrated with Matlab.”

Clicking the link brought me to a youtube video of this particular applicant wearing a custom-built robot glove , manipulating a matrix of force values within a Matlab window.

I was blown away.

I showed it to my team.

I showed it to my boss.

I showed it to the VP.

It was seriously the coolest job application I had ever seen. And honestly, the guy probably just focused on that one project instead of his courses for a semester.

But it paid off. We ended up offering him a position.

But guess what: yup, already took a job at another company he had a better offer with.

Which goes to show you the power of differentiating yourself. It doesn’t take much, but if you stand out , and haven’t completely blown it in the other areas (e.g. failing out of school, zero work experience, being a weirdo, etc.) you’ll stand head and shoulders above other applicants.

Want more tips for succeeding in your engineering career? Here’s one professional engineer’s top advice for students .

Git ‘er dun

Okay people. You’ve made it this far, so I know you have the determination and persistence to get through your degree program unscathed.

So remember:

  • Put in the time and effort intelligently and selectively (by optimizing for assignments with big grade impact)
  • Make sure that time is well spent (by using efficient learning techniques the most out of your study time and test prep)
  • Don’t let group projects drag you down (take ownership and lead)
  • Get yourself a sweet gig by doing cool stuff (without being a weirdo)

It’s not rocket science (well actually it is for you Aero people), but it does require that you step outside the norm. The difference between barely scraping by, and graduating cum laude might just come down to your strategy.

And in the end, you may just end up building robots after all.

Top 10 Tips on How to Write Engineering Assignments

10 Tips on How to Write Engineering Assignments

Engineering assignments can be challenging, especially for students who are new to the field or need help with academic writing. However, with the right approach and some helpful tips, writing engineering assignments can become a manageable task. In this blog post, we will provide the top 10 tips on how to write engineering assignments. These tips will cover various aspects of the writing process, including choosing a topic, conducting research, structuring your assignment, and writing effective sentences and paragraphs. Whether you are an undergraduate or postgraduate student, these tips will help you improve your engineering writing skills and achieve better grades on your assignments.

Tips on How to Write Engineering Assignments

Table of Contents

Here are some tips on how to write engineering assignments:

1) Engineering Assignments Should Be To The Point

The first tip for writing engineering assignments is to be concise and to the point. Engineering is a technical field that requires clear and precise communication. Therefore, it is essential to avoid using unnecessary words or overly complicated language that can hide your message. Instead, focus on delivering your ideas and arguments in a clear and straightforward manner. This will not only help you convey your message effectively but also demonstrate your understanding of the topic to your instructor.

2) Make Brief Intro

When you are writing an assignment you have to give a brief introduction of the topics that you are writing. You have to know that the subjects in engineering are technical so, you should know how to write engineering assignments. Give basic details of the topic that the person can know what you are writing on a topic. a brief intro also examines what you are talking about in all assignments therefore if it will be creative, brief, and informative, the more it will get value. This is one of the ways on how to write engineering assignments.

3) Do the Vast Research

When you are writing any topic, you have a vast knowledge of that topic. For that, you have to do vast research and know how to write an engineering assignment. Because the topics in engineering are quite technical. For making an easy task you can do one more thing during research or collecting information make some notes and note down every major point so that if you start writing the final assignments you shouldn’t be worried or any confusion about the topic. Thus this also helps you on how to write engineering assignments.

4) Add Some Creativity

You know how to write engineering assignments, for that you have to add some creativity in your assignments. Like, use the scales for majoring the diagrams and make some projects in that creative way so that anyone can be impressed by your work. So, add some creativity while doing the engineering assignments. Creativity not should only in the words but also in the style you are making.

5) Take Ideas from Seniors Assignments

When you know how to write engineering assignments but still you have to take ideas from your senior’s assignments. The way they present their assignments in a detailed way and what they write in the assignment can give more help to you when you start writing your own assignment. This will give you an idea of where to start the project or assignment. They have spent lot of energy, time, and creativity. So it would be easier for you to get the best idea to make your assignments more insightful, productive, and valuable.

6) Clear & Easy To Understand

If a person or the student has an interest in the engineering topics and knows how to write the engineering assignment. Then it will not create hurdles in his work and he/she can easily write anything about the assignment. But the projects or engineering should be clear to them and they have basic knowledge of the topics so that they can easily work on their projects. The more your assignments will be clear and easy for the examiner to understand, the more it will create a positive impact on the examiner. Using many hard words that would not be understood by everyone makes a little negative impact. That’s why the language should be clear and easy to understand. This is the way on how to write engineering assignments.

7) Give Examples To Make Point Clear

Writing an engineering assignment is not easy, if you don’t use the perfect examples then the assignments have no value and not worth making. You know how to write engineering assignments then it will be only possible if you give the proper examples to make it clear and give the best use of projects while working on the assignments. Giving examples shows the mindset that the students are having practical knowledge about the subject or not. This is also showing that students truly want to make clear to the examiner about assignments and it would be easy for everyone to understand through examples.

8) Add Some Infographics Prints To Make Assignments Interesting

If you start using infographics it would make more effective impact on the examiner. Infographics are something the right way in which you can discuss many things under fewer words.also, it makes your assignments more creative and truthful. Using only the textual part is sounds a little boring but if you use some infographics print in your engineering assignments then it would be an advanced advantage for you. This is how to write engineering assignments.

9) Add Your Research Study Experience

During making engineering assignments you must have to add your research study experience. How you did your research, how many research methods you have applied to make those assignments, and how many difficulties you faced during making assignments. You should also share some Do’s and Dont’s, this is the way to build an examiner’s trust in your assignments. This is one of the best tips on how to write engineering assignments.

10) Include Major Points During Finish The Assignment

In the end when you are going to finish your assignment make sure you should sum up everything that you have discussed in a brief point so that it will recall in the examiner mind what he/she already has studied. Recall must be there to understand everything in a short period of time. This is how you can make your assignments. This is the fines way on how to write engineering assignments.

How To Choose A Topic For Your Engineering Assignment In 2023

Look for topics that matter in 2023 and are relevant to what’s happening in the engineering world. Pay attention to things that can make a difference.

3. Don’t Go Too Big Topic

Select a topic that’s not too wide or general. It should be specific enough so you can explore it well and not get lost in too much information.

4. Find Enough Information

Ensure enough books, articles, and other materials are available for your topic. You don’t want to struggle to find information.

5. Ask Your Teachers

Check if your teachers know about your chosen topic. They can give you advice and suggestions.

6. Be Different

Try to find a topic that’s not commonly chosen by others. Being unique can make your assignment more interesting.

Welcome to the Purdue OWL

This page is brought to you by the OWL at Purdue University. When printing this page, you must include the entire legal notice.

Copyright ©1995-2018 by The Writing Lab & The OWL at Purdue and Purdue University. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, reproduced, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without permission. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our terms and conditions of fair use.

This set of OWL resources aims to help engineering instructors and TAs create and assess a variety of short, low-overhead writing exercises for use in engineering courses. The primary focus here is on “writing to learn” assignments, which leverage writing to improve students’ conceptual understanding of technical concepts.

Writing exercises can be used in engineering courses to promote the deeper learning of technical material and build students’ writing skills. Writing in engineering courses gives students practice in articulating engineering concepts to different audiences and in engaging with technical communication genres. However, engineering instructors and TAs often struggle to incorporate writing into engineering classes due to a variety of challenges, including class size and the amount of time it takes to grade writing assignments. Additionally, the teaching of writing is an entire discipline of study with its own theories and practices that may not be accessible to engineering educators.

Writing assignments in engineering courses can take many forms, ranging from a couple of sentences of in-class writing to formal reports.

Conceptual Writing

Ask students to write about technical definitions, assumptions, or terminology. They can rephrase easily found definitions and assumptions in their own words, which allows them to articulate basic knowledge that they have learned in the course.

Explain-a-Problem

Take an existing “calculator problem” and have students explain their answers. The format of their explanations can range from a few clarifying sentences to a solution manual-type description. This is the simplest type of writing question to apply, and it dovetails perfectly with already-developed homework questions.

How Stuff Works

Ask students to use newly-learned concepts and terminology in an explanation of how something works in the real world. This question forces students to apply new concepts and equations to an actual situation.

Real-world Example

Advise students to seek out and explain a real-world example of a concept in action. This type of writing prompt is great at promoting student appreciation for the real-world importance of what they are learning.

Design-a-Problem

Assign students to design their own homework problem and write a detailed solution to that problem. This approach lets students be creative and encourages deep understanding of technical concepts and procedures.

Open-ended Design

Challenge students to design a device or solution associated with a stated design objective. The writing component of the assignment lies in the explanation of the design. This writing task allows students to create their own design and further engage with technical concepts and procedures as they explain how their design works.

How to Write Engineering University Assignments

When students write their university assignments, they face various challenges

GN Feature Story

When you’re a schooler, your engineering academic obligations seem to be a huge burden. It’s a common mistake for many engineering students to think like that. They swiftly alter their minds when they attend universities. The engineering university assignments level consists of a more complex curriculum. Consequently, the assignments students have to complete are likewise more difficult.

engineering assignments reddit

Many college students cannot handle some of their assignments. Therefore, they request an engineering college assignment help . A trustworthy website similar to Domypapers.com is able to do real miracles and can handle the most complicated tasks. This company also easily tackles assignments at the engineering university assignment.

If you aren’t able to write some engineering university assignments, we’ll help you. Our guide was specially created to highlight some essential points and tricks to handle any piece of writing. They are universal and suit any university.

Key Factors to Consider

When students write their engineering university assignments, they face various challenges. Oftentimes, they get confused because different assignments have different purposes. Let’s review the typical assignments written at universities:

  • Engineering Dissertations;
  • Engineering Case studies;
  • Engineering Essays;
  • Engineering Coursework;
  • Engineering Reports;
  • Presentations, etc.

There are certain factors, which affect the way your project must be tackled.

  • Preparation;
  • Your audience;

Each point of the list is utterly important. If you complete our list properly, you avoid lots of potential problems. We’ll shed more light on the main points.

Getting Started

Your first step to the successful completion of any engineering assignment is to learn the demands. Every piece of writing has a specific purpose and you ought to be sure you know and understand it. Thus, a descriptive essay makes you describe some places, events or people. A compare and contrast essay demands to provide the main similarities and differences of at least two objects to clarify their qualities and purposes. Always study the slightest details.

Afterward, choose a good engineering topic. It must be something relevant and useful to your engineering major like civil, mechanical, chemical, electrical, mining, etc. Choose an urgent issue without proper answers. Your project will be helpful for your readers if you provide a clear solution.

Of course, you should take into account the opinion of your audience. Think about what is important and interesting to them. Focus on the issue and think how to deliver it properly. Find trustworthy facts and proofs to support your theory.

Outlining and Drafting

The last pre-writing stage is to compose an engineering outline. It includes the main writing stages. Every engineering essay includes the introduction, main plot, and conclusion. If you’re assigned a research paper, dissertation and similar complex assignments, your plan should also include an abstract, literature review, methodology, discussion, and so on. The sections vary depending on the paper type and the engineering university assignments you study in. Set plain deadlines to be sure you manage your assignment on time.

Write a couple of drafts or more if you have time or need. Every next draft will be better than the previous one. Make logical and smooth connections, use proper vocabulary, improve fluency. Besides, add tables, lists, charts, diagrams, and similar stuff to make your text readable and vivid.

Things to Check

After you have written the final copy, don’t hurry to submit it. There should take place a post-writing stage, which is also called a revision. It’s an important stage when you should check every single sentence of your engineering assignment. Obligatorily consider the following points:

  • A word count;
  • Margins and fonts;
  • Citations and references;
  • Spelling and punctuation;
  • Vocabulary;
  • Plagiarism;
  • The relevance of your evidence, etc.

These are the main points you cannot ignore. If you miss some spots, you risk losing a lot of essential grades. Therefore, be attentive and cautious.

To be sure you have formatted and cited your paper correctly, check the assigned writing style. It may be MLA, APA, Chicago, Turabian, and others. Give heed to every inch of the demands.

To verify grammar , spelling, and similar necessities, use Grammarly, Ginger, Hemingway, and other programs. They indicate different types of mistakes and even show the correct usage. Don’t forget to run your text through several plagiarism checkers to make it authentic.

Following our guidelines, you’ll compose great assignments. They will meet academic standards to provide you with the necessary grades. Be smart and enjoy academic success.

  • Zoom:  Some meetings with an instructional team member may be handled via Zoom. Download the Purdue Zoom app on your laptop or PC. ( link to Purdue Zoom )

Your instructor may use additional technologies and software to facilitate interaction.

Course Structure

Each section of ENGR 132 is taught by a teaching team that includes an instructor, a graduate teaching assistance (GTA), undergraduate teaching assistants called Peer Teachers, and undergraduate graders. Course meetings are ENGR 13200 SYLLABUS | 110 minutes long and the course meets two days a week. All sections meet face-to-face. You are required to attend the lecture during the scheduled class time (see also Attendance Policy ).

Course Schedule

The course schedule will be provided to students on the section’s Brightspace page. Schedule and assignments are subject to change throughout the semester. Any changes will be updated in Brightspace.

This is a project and team-based course. You will work in a collaborative learning environment on multiple assignments and a team project, involving authentic engineering situations. You will learn how to effectively work on a diverse team. Once team assignments begin, you are expected to have regular team meetings and work collaboratively on team projects and assignments. Your performance as a team member is part of your course grade. Failure to adequately and professionally engage in team activities may result in individual loss of credit on work that was turned in as a team (see Professional Expectations ). Past ENGR 132 students have found their teaming experience in this course to be worthwhile and rewarding.

Assignments

ENGR 132 follows a flipped classroom model. Before class, you will watch videos and take quizzes related to course topics called Pre-Class Quizzes (PCQs). In class, you will work on activities, individually or in teams, related to the day’s topics. Assignments and activities that are traditionally considered as homework are started in class. The teaching team will be available during class time, so you can obtain help with understanding course topics and assignments from the various members of your teaching team.

Late Work Policy

On-time submission of your work is vital to successful performance in this course. Read each of your assignment’s instructions to see if late work is permitted.

Late work is only accepted as specified in the following cases:

  • Submitting late individual work without penalty: You may submit late individual assignments without penalty only when you have an Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS) approved absence (see Excused Absences ). In these situations, arrange submission of your late work with your graduate teaching assistant (GTA) or instructor.
  • Submitting late individual work with a 25% penalty: When late submissions are permitted, you may submit your work up to 24 hours late, but you will incur a deduction of 25% of the maximum possible points for the assignment.
  • Team Assignments: Late submission of team work is not permitted.
  • CATME Assignments: Late submissions of the Team Formation Survey or Peer & Team Evaluations is not permitted.

No work may be submitted after the 24-hour late period without specific exception from your instructor.

Help Sessions

ENGR 132 provides help sessions as an opportunity for you to receive guidance in determining answers to specific questions on assignments. See Brightspace for scheduled times and locations as well as general help session guidelines. Additional help is also available from your instructor; contact them for more information.

Grading Scale

Grades are assigned according to the percentage of available points earned as detailed in the table below. Note that to successfully pass ENGR 132, your final grade must be a C- or better. There is no rounding of grades in ENGR 132. There are four categories of assignments that make up the final grade: Pre-Class Quizzes (10%), Individual Assignments (34%), Team Assignments (26%), & Exams (30%).

Grading and Feedback

The purpose of grading is to assess your understanding and utilization of the concepts taught in the course, and to provide you with feedback about the strengths and weaknesses evident in your work. Full credit may be awarded on items that are mostly correct even if the work still contains errors in understanding. Therefore, it is important that you not only check your score on a particular assignment or exam, but also review the feedback provided by the graders. This feedback will help you improve your understanding of the concepts being assessed and, in turn, improve your performance on future work.

Regrade Requests

Most grading for this course will happen in Gradescope. If you have concerns about how an assignment or exam problem was graded, use Gradescope’s Regrade Request tool to submit a detailed description of the concern.

  • Regrade requests are only open for a limited time after grades have been posted – 7 days normally, but less at the end of the semester.
  • Your regrade request must be concise and professional. Please see Communication with the Teaching Team (under Professional Expectations below) for proper communication etiquette.
  • If the regrade request is approved by the teaching team, your assignment or exam problem will be completely regraded. The updated grade may increase, decrease, or stay the same, depending on the outcome of the regrade process.

Professional Expectations

Each Professional Expectation (PE) in ENGR 132 reinforces the idea that everyone in our learning environment helps shape the environment so that it is positive and productive for all. This includes arriving for class on time and being prepared, listening and taking notes during the lecture, focusing on course activities during class, controlling your behavior to minimize distractions to those around you, and engaging with others in a respectful and professional manner.

Professional Expectations Deductions

The instructional team may deduct points from your semester total for behavior that is disruptive to your class or to your team’s dynamics and performance.

Communicating with the Teaching Team

When communicating with members of your ENGR 132 teaching team, your email must originate from your Purdue email account and include:

  • ENGR 132, section number, and team number (once teams are assigned);
  • topic (e.g., assignment name); and
  • a detailed description of your concern.

For professional communication, make sure your email is:

  • appropriately addressed to the recipient (e.g., not “Hey,” but “Dear Professor”);
  • includes a helpful subject line with ENGR 13200 included (e.g., “ENGR 132: Question about A04”);
  • written in complete sentences;
  • specific (e.g., not “I have a question on the assignment” but “I have a question on part 2 of problem 3 in assignment A04”); and
  • concluded with an expression of appreciation for the reader’s time or help.

Allow at least 24 hours for emails to be answered.

Attendance Policy

Maintaining contact with your instructor, class, and team is an important part of your success in the classroom. You are expected to attend classes and participate in the in-class activities. You and your team will both benefit from your participation.

You are responsible for:

  • Preparation: be prepared for each class according to your instructor’s directions. This includes completing the assigned pre-class reading/videos and pre-class quizzes (found on Brightspace), as well as other tasks as assigned.
  • Punctuality: arrive on time for class and be prepared to participate.
  • Participation: due to the team-oriented nature of this course, your consistent and enthusiastic participation in all parts of the course is important. Failure to participate in class will be considered equivalent to an unexcused absence.

Excused Absences

  • An approved ODOS absence from the Office of the Dean of Students. Under academic regulations, excused absences may be granted by ODOS for cases of grief/bereavement, military service, jury duty, parenting leave, or emergent medical care.
  • Documented chronic or long-term illness. In this case, please obtain documentation from the Office of Dean of Students, and see your instructor and/or GTA. This should be done upon returning to class so that an effective course of action can be determined.
  • Other situations may be excused at the discretion of your instructor .

Unexcused Absences

  • If you know you will miss a class session, you must communicate with your instructor and GTA as soon as you become aware that you will be absent. You are expected to communicate absences to your instructor and GTA before class (except under extraordinary situations).
  • Failure to communicate with your instructor will automatically result in an unexcused absence.
  • You should also communicate with your teammates as a professional courtesy, to ensure you are aware of the topics being covered during the missed class, and to coordinate work on the course projects.
  • You are responsible for catching up on all information presented in class in preparation for the next class.

In-Class Attendance Procedures

The teaching team will take attendance shortly after class starts. You will be marked present if you are in your seat and absent if you are not. If you arrive late, you are responsible for quietly checking in with the teaching team to request that your absence be changed to a tardy; not all requests will be granted.

Your unexcused absence total is the sum of your tardy and absence counts. You are allowed up to three total unexcused absences that can be taken for any reason without penalty. Each additional unexcused absence will result in a grade penalty.

  • The absence penalty is -20 points for every additional absence.
  • The tardy penalty is ½ of an unexcused absence (-10 points for every additional tardy).
  • These point deductions will begin after the allowed 3 total unexcused absences.

If you have more than six total unexcused absences, you will fail the course regardless of your class standing.

Example : A student has three tardies and two absences, and so has 3.5 total absences. This student will receive a 10-point deduction off their total grade. 

Example : A student has zero tardies and five absences, and so has 5.0 total absences. This student will receive a 40-point deduction off their total grade. 

University Policies

Academic integrity.

You are a member of the Purdue community – a community that values integrity. Academic integrity is your pledge, as a member of the Purdue Engineering community, to uphold high standards of responsibility and honor in all your academic work. Your integrity is just as crucial to your engineering career as your technical knowledge. Academic dishonesty harms both. Build a strong foundation for ethical work and honorable standards as an engineer in your undergraduate years.

You will be assessed in this course using individual and team submissions. When you work on individual assignments, your submissions must represent your unique work. For team assignments, all submissions must originate from the team, reflecting the team's collective effort. Originality in code not only demonstrates a student's understanding and mastery of the material but also ensures a fair and equitable assessment of their skills and knowledge. It serves as a fundamental measure of a student's ability to apply what they have learned in the course to solve specific problems.

You are expected to submit solutions that are your own creation. You, individually or in a team, must design and develop your solutions without copying from or sharing with any outside sources (including, but not limited to, peers, electronic sharing sites, or generative AI tools). Failure to submit your own unique solutions undermines the learning process and violates the trust and expectations set by Purdue and the engineering community.

Your work in this class should fulfill Purdue’s student-created honor pledge: “As a Boilermaker pursuing academic excellence, I pledge to be honest and true in all that I do. Accountable together – We are Purdue.” To maintain academic integrity, comply with course and University policies. You will be held to the standards explained in these documents and to university regulations for student conduct.

  • Course Academic Integrity Policy
  • Statement of Integrity and Code of Conduct
  • Academic Integrity and You: Undergraduate Edition

Submitted work will be periodically checked for various forms of academic dishonesty. This check is performed manually and with similarity checkers such as MOSS .

Academic integrity is one of the highest values that Purdue University holds. Incidents of academic misconduct in this course will be addressed by the course instructor. Any violation of course policies relating to academic integrity will result minimally in a failing or zero grade for that assignment/exam, and at the instructor’s discretion may result in a failing grade for the course. Incidents of academic misconduct will be referred to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities (OSRR) for review, where university penalties may be considered.

Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI)

Generative AI is a tool with strengths and weaknesses, just like any other tool. Good engineers use tools to strengthen their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. They understand their tools and use those tools ethically. Before you use generative AI, you need to understand how it can help you and what its limitations are.

General policy for generative AI use in this course: When you work on individual assignments, your submissions must represent your unique work. For team assignments, all submissions must originate from the team, reflecting the team's collective effort. Originality in work not only demonstrates a student's understanding and mastery of the material but also ensures a fair and equitable assessment of their skills and knowledge. It serves as a fundamental measure of a student's ability to apply what they have learned in the course to solve specific problems.

You are responsible for using generative AI in an ethical manner that supports and enhances your learning. The course academic integrity policy provides you with more detailed information about how to use generative AI appropriately . You must be familiar with and abide by these policies. They are summarized below.

You are prohibited from using generative AI to undermine or devalue the learning experience for yourself or your classmates.

  • Never ask generative AI to do a problem for you; always attempt your own solution before asking AI for help.
  • Never plagiarize the output from a generative AI tool.
  • Never use generative AI during an exam.
  • Never submit any part of any course materials, which are copyrighted and cannot be shared outside the classroom without permission, to a generative AI platform.

Failure to submit your own unique solutions undermines the learning process and violates the trust and expectations set by Purdue and the engineering community.

Material Copyrights

The ENGR 131 materials and their notes are copyrighted or derivatives of copyrighted materials and shall not be sold, bartered, or posted on sites such as Course Hero, Chegg, and Quizlet in whole or in part without express permission from your instructor  and  the Associate Head of First-Year Engineering. 

Usage of Recordings

Course recordings are made available for students and should only be used for reviewing the content of the class. Course recordings may not be shared in whole or in part outside of ENGR 131 and shall not be uploaded to any external sites.

Nondiscrimination Statement

Purdue University is committed to maintaining a community that recognizes and values the inherent worth and dignity of every person; fosters tolerance, sensitivity, understanding, and mutual respect among its members; and encourages each individual to strive to reach his or her potential. In pursuit of its goal of academic excellence, the University seeks to develop and nurture diversity. The University believes that diversity among its many members strengthens the institution, stimulates creativity, promotes the exchange of ideas, and enriches campus life. A hyperlink to Purdue’s full  Nondiscrimination Policy Statement  is included in our course Brightspace under University Policies.

Accessibility

Purdue University is committed to an inclusive and welcoming experience for all students. We strive to make learning experiences accessible to all participants. The Disability Resource Center (DRC) provides services, resources, and programs to facilitate equal access for disabled students, resulting in their full participation in curricular and co-curricular offerings.

If you anticipate or experience physical or academic barriers based on disability, you are encouraged to contact the Disability Resource Center ([email protected] or 765-494-1247). If you are eligible for academic accommodations because you have a documented disability that will affect your work in this class and/or for an exam, you will use your DRC Course Accessibility Letter (CAL) and work with your instructor as soon as possible to discuss your needs.

Students with disabilities whose DRC Course Accessibility Letter (CAL) includes specific test accommodations, will work through your instructor and the FYE Instructional Support Team, so they can ensure proper accommodations are made. In some cases, exams may need to be scheduled with Purdue Testing Services (PTS). You must do this at least four (4) calendar days before the exam date listed on the syllabus. The FYE Instructional Support Team will provide PTS with your exam information. PTS will administer/proctor the exam for you. Students must inform the Instructor and GTA immediately of cases where PTS does not have space so that the FYE Instructional Support Team can make other arrangements. Students who fail to follow this process and these deadlines risk not being able to have their accommodations for that exam.

Mental Health/Wellness Statement

  • If you find yourself beginning to feel some stress, anxiety and/or feeling slightly overwhelmed, try WellTrack . Sign in and find information and tools at your fingertips, available to you at any time.
  • If you need support and information about options and resources, please contact or see the Office of the Dean of Students . Call 765-494-1747. Hours of operation are M-F, 8 am- 5 pm.
  • If you find yourself struggling to find a healthy balance between academics, social life, stress, etc., sign up for free one-on-one virtual or in-person sessions with a Purdue Wellness Coach at RecWell . Student coaches can help you navigate through barriers and challenges toward your goals throughout the semester. Sign up is free and can be done on BoilerConnect.
  • If you’re struggling and need mental health services: Purdue University is committed to advancing the mental health and well-being of its students. If you or someone you know is feeling overwhelmed, depressed, and/or in need of mental health support, services are available. For help, such individuals should contact Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at 765-494-6995 during and after hours, on weekends and holidays, or by going to the CAPS office on the second floor of the Purdue University Student Health Center (PUSH) during business hours.

Any student who faces challenges securing their food or housing and believes this may affect their performance in the course is urged to contact the Dean of Students for support. There is no appointment needed and Student Support Services is available to serve students 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Emergency Preparedness

Purdue University has an Integrated Emergency Management Plan (IEMP). This plan includes procedures, processes, and plans for responding to an emergency. Visit the Emergency Preparedness website for more information. Keep your cell phone on to receive a PurdueALERT text message. When on campus, it is also important to be familiar with the emergency response procedures for your location and follow the instructions from emergency response personnel (police, fire department, etc.) when they are present.

Procedures specific to the ENGR 132 classrooms are below:

  • General Emergency: For ANY emergency, call 911 (fire, medical emergency, etc.).
  • Fire Alarm or Evacuation: Gather all critical personal belongings and exit the building using the stairs. When exiting the building, do not use the elevator. Once outside the building, stay clear of all emergency vehicles and personnel. Meet your classmates north of Lambertus Hall (LMBS) by Mechanical Engineering (ME). 
  • Tornado: Proceed down the stairs to the basement of Lambertus Halls (LMBS) Be prepared to sit (or kneel) on the floor, face a wall, and cover your head.
  • Other situations: The course of action would depend on the situation. It is recommended that students remain in the classroom and wait for further instructions.

In the event of a major campus emergency, course requirements, deadlines and grading percentages are subject to changes that may be necessitated by a revised semester calendar or other circumstances beyond the instructor’s control. Relevant changes to this course will be posted onto the course website or can be obtained by contacting the instructor or GTA via email or phone. You are expected to read your @purdue.edu email on a frequent basis.
