Computer Engineering and a worried parent...
FYI I looked in the Parent Forum and couldn't find anything that would help so i thought I would post here. My son is graduating in May. He wants to major in Computer Engineering. He applied to only one school, UTA, and was accepted and given a partial academic scholarship. He is set to go orientation in a couple of months. He has a 4.3 GPA but he went thru high school with hardly any serious studying. His first passion is video games and he has a tendency to put off his studies in order to play. He has 18 dual credit hours and 9 AP credits. He should be fine right? But I am so worried. I'm worried that he doesn't really know how to study. I'm worried that he won't figure it out until its too late. I'm worried that it will be so much harder than he thinks it will be. I've read the entire UTA website and the College of Engineering website and everything. It really seems hard and not just the classes, but the entire program. When we visited campus, we went to a meeting at the Engineering College and I saw all of these students looking so stressed out. I'm probably worrying for no reason but bottom line? How hard is it really?49 replies
