Which engineering major is least difficult?
I know all engineering majors are hard, but I would just like to know which one is least difficult. Here's a list. Please order them from hardest to easiest. * Aerospace Engineering * Bioengineering * Industrial Engineering * Chemical Engineering * Civil and Environmental Engineering * Electrical Engineering * Computer Engineering * Mechanical Engineering I'm going in as a chemical engineering major but I'm having doubts. I think I will be able to handle it. I got a 5 on my AP Chemistry exam and a 4 on my AP Calculus BC Exam, and a 5 on my AP Computer Science exam. I also got a 5 on my AP Biology exam so I am actually thinking about Bioengineering. I like biology. Does anyone think that I will make it? Should I drop chemical for bioengineering? Do Bioengineers get good job opportunities?

first of, in my experience there is no engineering field thats more or less difficult than other fields. every engineering discipline presents different sets of problems, challenges and risks but the goal always is to make life better for humanity... More

I'm an aerospace engineer and i thought it was fun! so i dunno. if your into graphing the earth and all that good hunky dory stuff, go fo that! but find something you REALLY want to do! if you like science and you're doing so well, i would go with chemical engineering!

IE - Imaginary, err I mean Industrial Engineering is probably the easiest as far as course difficulty. It's the major that most of my cohorts who didn't do well in Chem E selected. Honestly though, none of them are too difficult if you have discipline to do the work.

From your list, I'd say Industrial Engineering is the least complex. However, I would encourage you to do some volunteering, job shadowing, and maybe an internship or co-op in order to find a job (even if it is not in the engineering field) where you enjoy the day to day tasks and schedule. I always tell people, don'... More

I'm an Industrial & Operations Engineering ("In-and-Out Easy", haha) undergrad and it's not too bad. It's not as easy as they say though. My housemate is a Mechanical Engineer and he seems to have a much tougher time with his work and also spends a lot more time on it. I'm going to get a Masters in Biomedical though... More

There is no point tip-toeing around to avoid hurting someones feelings. Civil & Environmental, Industrial & Operations are the easiest.

Don't worry about it yet. I would just pick the field that sounds the funniest for now and stick with it. Most engineering colleges are set up such that all engineering students basically take the same courses for the first two or three semesters. Even if you change your field of engineering after your sophomore year... More

All legitimate Engineering schools require mastery of math through calculus, then it's all applied physics. Want easy? ITT Technical Institute. No one fails. Students = revenue for stockholders.

Questions you must ask yourself are: What do I like to do? What am I good at? The reason I say this is if I told you Industrial Engineering is the easiest you may chose a career path you hate.

The Least difficult for me is Industrial Engineering because it not much on mathematics.

I'm in Civil Engineering, sure the courses are easier, but I would just like to point out that that many of the courses are common to all engineering...so we concentrate on the big stuff and leave the details to the others... More
