Good afternoon all! I am having somewhat of a dilemma in my Electrical Engineering curriculum, and would like some amount of advice on the matter.
Right now I am in Circuits I and Physics II, both of which require labs. The Circuits lab is 3 hours, and the Physics lab is 2 hours, but in my case they are back to back - so I have 5 straight hours of labs, and I absolutely abhor it. It is only once a week, but the lab reports and dealing with it are crushing me.
Now, the difficultly I have with this is that I absolutely love the theoretical aspects of these sciences, I could sit around deriving equations all day; and putting numbers in after that is, of course, quite simple. But, in engineering, while I know there are jobs that are simply design and theoretically based, I don't know if I can make it through school with these damn labs! I don't know what to do about this - any advice?
My only thought is to switch to something else, but the only thing I can think of that will get rid of labs is going out of science all together. I am not too fond of this idea, but I am considering switching to something such as Actuarial Science, where I still get to use advanced math and problem solving, but avoid the lab situations.
I'm just not sure what to do because I know I have 2 or 3 years of labs left, and these are supposed to be the easier ones!
