Is it possible to major in engineering and have a balanced life (both in college and after)?
I'm currently in community college and transferring this fall but I'm no longer sure if I want to major in engineering. I guess I've realized over the last few months that quality of life matters a lot to me and I don't know many happy engineers. (Most seem stressed and overworked.) I'm also not sure if engineering is for me. Even though I've enjoyed classes in math, CS, bio, and chem, I struggled a lot in/didn't really enjoy physics (I never took it in high school, just dived into calc-based physics in college) and it seems like engineering is mostly physics. (Is this true?)
For those of you who majored in engineering:
Did you enjoy your college experience? How did you handle stress? How did you decide you wanted to major in engineering? Were you passionate about it or did you just happen to fall into it? Are there engineering jobs out there that don't require a crazy workweek?
