Computer Science Part 1 (Discrete Math): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tzl0ELY_TiM Computer Science Part 2 (Algorithms & Computation): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-Vqxugd6HQ What is Computer Engineering: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avZTQgLs064 Math Classes that Engineers Take: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRxsfgilBKY In this video I discuss computer science vs computer engineering. Computer science and computer engineering have many similarities but also some big differences. Computer science majors learn more about software while computer engineers learn more about hardware. In terms of the curriculum, computer science majors go on to take classes on algorithms and computation, whereas computer engineers take circuits and electronics classes. Both majors use a lot of math but computer science majors use more discrete math, while computer engineers use more algebra and calculus level math (that you're used to). Computer scientists really won't see calculus much in their curriculum. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

What to Expect at an Engineering Interview
 
08:03
Jake Voorhees' Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6jLimb3eM2MVx1m4uTL8Hg In this video I go over engineering interviews and what to expect. I focus mainly on interviews for internships and entry level jobs. Note that everything in this video can apply to an engineering jobs OR an internship. When interviewing for an engineering company it's possible that you'll be asked technical questions. These are questions where you may have to draw a free body diagram, solve a simple circuit problem, or write a simple program on the whiteboard. These won't be too in depth but it's important to have a foundation for basic engineering principles. You'll be asked some typical interview questions which I discuss in the video such as "What was one obstacle you've had to overcome as an engineer?" And don't forget to ask questions at the end! You want to show that you have an interest in working for the company. You can even prepare questions beforehand that you will ask at the end of the interview. Interviews will all differ but these were some consistent aspects that I came across and heard from people.

What is Computer Engineering?
 
08:43
Computer engineering is the combination of electrical engineering and computer science. Computer engineering majors will take basic circuit analysis classes where they will learn about voltage and current in resistor, capacitor, and inductor circuits. They will learn the basics of binary and how computers read 1's and 0's. Additionally computer engineers learn about memory, registers, microprocessors, and more of the computer hardware. Computer engineers will then share many of their classes with computer scientists where they will learn computer programming. The curriculum will consist of at least learning C and java. C programming can then be applied to programming hardware like robotic vehicles. After learning different aspects of programming, computer engineers will have an option to take various elective classes that focus on specific aspects of either computer engineering, computer science, or electrical engineering. Computer engineering is a very flexible major because of having experience on both the hardware and software side so you can cater your career path based on your interests. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Mechanical Vs. Electrical Engineering: How to Pick the Right Major
 
10:54
Often students struggle between whether to major in mechanical engineering or electrical engineering. These are two of the most common engineering disciplines so I wanted to address this question for those who are undecided. The good news is that both mechanical and electrical engineers are needed for nearly every engineering project out there. You'll see both of them working in various departments all across engineering companies. What's more important is deciding what you are going to enjoy learning about more. Rockets, aircrafts, medical equipment, etc are all worked on by both majors. The question is whether you are more passionate about the circuits, signals, electronics, and so on OR the structures, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, etc behind the projects you'll work on. This will most likely determine which engineering major is better for you. If someone enjoyed both disciplines equally and I had to make a decision, I would say to choose mechanical engineering and specialize in mechatronics. This way you will have exposure to both engineering disciplines that you know you enjoy. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Aerospace Vs Mechanical Engineering - How to Pick the Right Major
 
09:24
Aerospace and mechanical engineering are often a common toss up for students because these majors are so similar. The classes you take for both these disciplines are extremely similar. As an aerospace engineer you will take more specific classes such as aerodynamics and propulsion, whereas mechanical engineers will take general fluid mechanics and thermodynamics that cover a wider range of applications. They also both take classes in structures, controls, vibrations, circuits, and more. In terms of careers, aerospace engineers usually go into the aerospace industry and work on air or spacecrafts. But remember they can also work in the automotive industry, petroleum, boats, trains, and more. However, mechanical engineers typically have a wider range of career options because they can go into HVAC, alternative energy, biomedical, manufacturing, and much more. Overall if you know you want to work with aircrafts and spacecrafts, then consider aerospace engineering. If you are not totally sure what you are interested in going into, then consider mechanical engineering.

Should I Get a College Minor (or Double Major)?
 
08:16
Join the MajorPrep Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/majorprep/ Getting a college minor or double major is rarely required, however having one can only help your resume. Many students have interests in multiple subjects and want to know if it's worth it to do a double major or even just go for a minor to increase their knowledge. Although it can only help, by adding on that extra workload, you will sacrifice time and probably money. These are the two most important factors to consider. If you are taking out student loans you may not want to pursue a double major that will keep you in school longer than you had planned. Although these do look great on a resume, for many majors it doesn't drastically improve your career. If you do pursue one of these, try to make it very related to your primary major so that there is overlap in the curriculum which will lower the course load. Note: Not all employers will care about your minor or second major (especially if it's not related to your primary major). *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Plenty of people can be turned away from engineering for a variety of factors. Some of these that I include in the video are 1. Not being good at math 2. Not having any experience 3. Not being good with hands There are reasons why engineering might not be right for you. But it's important to distinguish those from the less important reasons that a lot of people have to deal with.

Civil Vs Mechanical Engineering - How to Pick the Right Major
 
07:50
What is Civil Engineering - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFljMHTQ1QY What is Mechanical Engineering - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W74y1RxN6BA In this video I discuss "Civil Vs Mechanical Engineering." These two majors start off very similar in college but then become very different. Civil engineers branch off into their subfields including structural engineering, geotechnical, water resources, and transportation. Mechanical engineers focus more on heat transfer, fluid mechanics, dynamic systems, etc. Mechanical engineering does lead to a wider range of job opportunities compared to civil engineering. However, both these majors have high employment and salaries so you can't go wrong with either one. Both of these majors involve a large amount of math and physics which you should have an interest in before entering either major. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

What is Industrial Engineering?
 
09:06
Industrial engineering focuses on improving processes. Industrial engineers analyze and optimize systems such as waiting in line at a theme park, boarding an airplane, helping people at a bank, answering calls at a call center, as well as manufacturing processes such as making airplane parts, car parts, household appliances, food, soda, bottled water, and so on. Industrial engineers will have to take a wide range of support classes such as calculus, physics, chemistry, circuits, and materials engineering. Although the most important support class that an industrial engineer will take is statistics. Statistics is crucial because in the real world processes, such as time it takes to help a customer in line, often can follow some kind of distribution, (which can't be represented by an equation as easily). Overall industrial engineering is great if you enjoy statistics, working with people, and optimizing profits and time for companies. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

The Math Major
 
10:40
This video covers the math major including applied math vs pure math, courses you'll take, and careers you can go into. The math major in undergrad involves a lot of the same classes whether you go into applied math or pure math include Calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, proofs, abstract algebra, real analysis, and more. But you will be able to take electives in pure or applied math concepts. Pure math is about using math to solve problems in math. Then applied math is about using math to solve problems outside of math (such as physics, engineering, finance, chemistry, biology, etc). Many pure math students end up getting their PhD so they can work in academia on research. Overall math students can go into a variety of fields including engineering, software development, teaching, finance, and more.

How to Become a Straight A Student
 
10:28
Buy the Book (Associate Link): http://amzn.to/2zRos08 Other Amazon Product Recommendations: https://www.amazon.com/shop/majorprep In this video I cover a summary of the book How to become a straight A student. Many students don't think of true optimal ways of how to get better grades. This book focused more on unique ways to study in order to maximize your time and efficiency. The author did not focus on students who simply studied longer hours to achieve high grades. These aren't exactly study hacks, but just proven study techniques of straight A students. High scoring students often participated in "deep work" where they worked with no distractions but for shorter periods of time. Your brain can only handle so much focus at once, so it's important to take breaks. You should keep a calendar handy for time management purposes. It's important to keep track of what needs to be done on a given day so you don't waste mental energy worrying about remembering everything. Note that even top students couldn't beat the urge to procrastinate, however, they were able to manage that feeling. In the video I discuss 5 ways to manage that feeling of procrastination including... 1) Keep a work progress journal 2) Give Yourself Energy 3) Make Studying an Event 4) Build a Routine 5) Choose your Hard Days Lastly make sure when taking exams to plan out your time for each problem and work from easiest to hardest. If you don't know something during a test, skip it and move on. Some things mentioned may seem difficult to adopt as a habit but if you give it a few weeks it will become second nature and you should see your grades start to improve and even your free time go up. Remember if you want to get better grades it's not just a matter of having more time, it's about managing your time well, organization, and mimicking those who are successful. If you make a habit of proven study tips, you'll see how you can get straight A's in school. *************************************************** ► For more information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************************** ► Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ► PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ► Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Electrical Engineering Vs Computer Engineering - How to Pick the Right Major
 
10:45
In this video I discuss electrical engineering vs computer engineering and how to know which major is right for you. Both these engineering disciplines share a lot of classes in undergrad. They both encounter circuits, electronics, programming, and plenty of math. Electrical engineers go on to take power, communications, and electromagnetism courses whereas computer engineers take discrete math, computer architecture, and computer networks. In terms of careers both electrical engineering and computer engineering majors can be qualified for many of the same positions. But if you are leaning towards something like power systems or communications then electrical engineering would be a better choice. Then if you are leaning towards computer vision or working on computer hardware, then of course computer engineering would be better. Otherwise you should do research because both these majors can work in a wide range of areas with a lot of overlap. In the video I also discuss computer engineering and electrical engineering projects that may help you decide which major is right for you. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

How Much Math do Engineers Use? (College Vs Career)
 
10:46
What Math Classes do Engineers Take? - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRxsfgilBKY In this video I discuss "How much math do engineers use?" Specifically I dive into the math they use in college vs their career. For a video like this there isn't a right answer because there are millions of engineers out there all with their unique experience. But after asking and looking around you will find consistencies in what a typical engineer would experience in their job. To summarize the math in the engineering curriculum is typically more intensive than what you'll experience in your career. This is not to say your career will be easier, but it does mean that the rigorous math you did on your tests in engineering, is not typically what you'll do at a job. You still have to have a mathematical foundation on the advanced concepts, but you don't do the tedious work as much. If you do enjoy math then there are plenty of jobs out there that use math exclusively, but you may have to work your way up to those positions. You should look into what different engineering majors are like and make sure you go into a career that best fits your interests. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

How to Excel at Math and Science

Buy the Book (Associate Link): http://amzn.to/2z0XJek Other Amazon Product Recommendations: https://www.amazon.com/shop/majorprep This video covers a summary of the book "how to excel at math and science." Whether you are a high school student struggling with math and science, or a college student studying engineering, math, physics, etc and are doing well, the techniques taught are meant for you. Becoming strong in math and science is not something that happens over night. You need to consistently be practicing and studying while using the tips talked about in the book. Two modes of thinking to remember include focused mode and diffuse mode thinking. These are where you are focused intensely on a problem, then when you let your mind wander and are more relaxed respectively. In order to excel in subjects that especially involve creativity, you need to participate in both forms of thinking. Some tips to help avoid procrastination include trying the Pomodoro technique, focusing on the process over the product, do the most disliked jobs first, and use mental contrasting. Remember you can't learn math and science on a deep level in one night. It's important you focus on learning a little everyday and don't put off homework until the last minute because your brain won't be able to learn absorb all the material on an optimal level. *************************************************** ► For more information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************************** ► Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ► PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ► Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

What is a Typical Schedule/Day Like for an Engineering Student?
 
07:13
Join the MajorPrep Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/majorprep/ In this video i discuss what a typical day and schedule is like for an engineering student. I can't speak for all students but I do outline what my schedule was like and how much I worked. Typically incoming engineering students are afraid that they will be overwhelmed with work and won't be able to have a life outside of school. The day in the life of an engineering student will differ from person to person, but many of the engineers I knew managed to find a balance between school and other activities. A college day doesn't usually involve that much class (maybe around 4 hours on average), so it is important you use your free time and breaks to study or complete homework. Doing this will free up your time in the evening and night or at least reduce the amount of work you need to do. Now be aware there will be semesters where you have a lot of units or you are taking very demanding classes. It is those times where you might be studying for 30-40 hours per week to try to stay caught up with everything. However, from experience not every week was this demanding, it just depends on your classes for that semester/quarter. *************************************************** ► For more information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************************** ► Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ► PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ► Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Whereas an engineer may just learn the equation but then go on to apply it to more design problems. Physicists can go into research at private or government labs or work along side engineers to help innovate new technologies and products. Additionally there are many fields within the physics major that you can concentrate in from optics to particle physics to astrophysics. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

What is Biochemistry?
 
07:03
Biochemistry is the combination of majoring in biology and chemistry. As a biochemistry major you will take more classes related to chemistry until your 3rd and 4th year where you can choose electives in biology or chemistry. Biochemists are also required to do much more problem solving and math based problems than a biology major, who would do more memorization. Biochemistry majors take a majority of chemistry classes but then branch out to learn more about the chemical structures of biological systems. So you will know more about the chemistry of living things, whereas chemistry majors learn about the chemical compounds of everything. As a biochemist you can go into research and development of new drugs and medicine. Biochemists work with drug design and must analyze how the chemicals within the drug are going to interact with the human body. Biochemistry is also a good path to go if you want to become a doctor, pharmacist, nurse, or dentist. In your later years at college you will be able to take elective classes that also have you lean more towards the biology or chemistry side depending on what you choose. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

What is Chemical Engineering?
 
14:18
In this video I discuss "What is chemical engineering?" To put simply, in chemical engineering you design processes to transport, transform, and produce materials. Chemical engineering is much more than just working with chemicals. You have to design chemical plants, reactors, and work with the processes that go into many of the products we know of. Careers in chemical engineering include alternative energy, food production, electronics, industrial chemicals, petroleum, and more. In this video I also discuss chemistry vs chemical engineering and how to know which major may be better for you. As a chemistry major you'd dive deeper into learning chemical reactions on a smaller scale and wouldn't learn any of the engineering principles to scale these reactions. Simply put, if you want to work solely in a lab, and work with chemical reactions, then you might want to major in chemistry or biochemistry. However, if you want to take those reactions, but figure out how to make them happen on a large scale, so they can go out to consumers or businesses, then a major in chemical engineering would be better for you. Chemical engineers can work with chemicals in a lab, but it's just less common to hear of this. *************************************************** ► For more information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************************** ► Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ► PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ► Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Although many people imagine a software developer when it comes to computer science, there are many more job titles you can have including security analyst, web developer, network systems administrator, etc. Many of the jobs listed in this video have the highest employment and growth rate of most jobs on the bureau of labor statistics. This major and career path isn't necessarily for everyone, but it definitely is a good choice. Lastly for many of the careers discussed in this video, you don't HAVE to have a degree in computer science to get into them. For some career paths you can have a degree in computer engineering, software engineering, information systems, and more. There are even people who are self taught and have landed software developer jobs. Be sure to keep an open mind, but hopefully this provides some insight.

You Can Learn (Almost) Anything That Anyone Else Can
 
09:40
This video covers a scientific discovery that you can learn almost anything that anyone else can. A question that psychologists have looked for answers to is whether innate ability causes success or is it hard work. Could anyone become the next Einstein through extreme dedication? Well we don't actually know this. But through years of study, they've discovered that if you don't account for people are extreme sides of the spectrum, then pretty much what someone can learn, anyone else can also learn. Whether you are entering college or trying to learn to play the guitar, your innate abilities are not a strong indicator of how successful you'll be. They've found that through strong deliberate practice and pushing through weak points, you can achieve much more than most others. *************************************************** ► For more information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************************** ► Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ► PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ► Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

What is Computer Science?
 
11:15
Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-Vqxugd6HQ In this part 1 video of "What is Computer Science?" I cover programming and discrete math in some detail. Computer science is often thought of as just glorified programming. But once you enter undergrad you will realize this is not the entire story. Computer science has more to it including discrete math, algorithms, theory of computation, hardware programming, and more. If you just want to learn how to program, then the computer science major will be more than you are expecting. In this video I mostly cover discrete math and concepts within it because of how important it is for classes to come. Although it's not used in all your classes, I show you examples so you have an idea of what math you will encounter. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

What is Biomedical Engineering?
 
09:10
Biomedical engineering is a broad major that encompasses mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, materials engineering, biology, computer science, and computer engineering. It's about using all these disciplines and applying the knowledge to the human body. Biomedical engineers create devices, structures, and even medicine that is used on and for the human body. Biomedical engineers create artificial limbs, pacemakers, defibrillators, surgical equipment, and so on. The biomedical engineering major has various concentrations where you can focus on different aspects such as the mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or biology side of the major. The major itself will be VERY similar to a mechanical engineering major until your later years in college where you dive into the actual biomedical engineering classes. Until then you will be taking all your support classes such as math, physics, chemistry, circuits, and some mechanical engineering classes themselves. Note: If you do decide to go into biomedical engineering in undergrad, then you should be prepared to pursue a master's degree after you graduate. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

How Much do Engineers and Scientists Make? Salary and Employment Statistics
 
06:50
Two common statistics that are helpful to know about any college major are: how much money you can expect to make, and the amount of job opportunities. Here I outline the statistics for many of the most majors and careers when it comes to engineering, math and science. One thing to note is that science majors very often need additional education. Even in the video there are statistics that don't directly say a master's or PhD is required, however, you'll find many of the people in those jobs have one. Engineering jobs on the other hand often don't require anything past a bachelor's degree. Remember that these statistics are just averages and are not a guarantee of what you'll make. Also note these are NOT starting salaries but rather averages over all people in the fields. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Does College GPA Matter?
 
04:59
This video covers whether your college GPA matters. To put simply, it will matter for getting further education whether it be a master's program, medical school, nursing school, law school, etc. However, when it comes to a job, your GPA might help you get an interview for some companies, but that won't always be the case. Some companies will filter out resumes that have lower than a certain GPA. Most people say this is not the case for them, but it does happen and you should be aware. Overall you don't need a good GPA in order to get a job, you really should be working on networking, projects, getting experience, and so on. *************************************************** ► For more information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************************** ► Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ► PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ► Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocRvM1boDGQ This video will cover robotics, some subfields within the career, and the best majors to pick if you want to go into this field. Robotics is a really broad field and by getting into this you can work on a variety of projects (military robots, agriculture robots, nanorobots, biomedical robots, etc). Majoring in robotics is obviously a good choice, but you don't HAVE to pick this major in order to get into the field. Some of the best majors include mechanical engineering, mechatronics, electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science.

Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1XJo0HqTS4 This is a more technical video that describes the calculus classes you will take as an engineering (and physics major) in undergrad. Regardless of what type of engineering discipline you choose, you will take mostly the same math classes. The first two calculus classes are the same as calculus AB and BC in high school respectively. Then you go on to multivariable calculus. Lastly you'll take a class on differential equations and some linear algebra. Different engineering disciplines all see different levels of high level math in their engineering classes. This video doesn't cover how much of this you will use in an actual engineering job. But rather shows but you can expect to see in your engineering curriculum in terms of math support classes.

What Can You Really Do As An Electrical Engineer?
 
13:28
Electrical engineering can be broken up into various concentrations. The main one's I discuss in the video are power, electronics, RF, and controls. Students who enter into electrical engineering will all take mostly the same classes up until normally their 3rd or 4th year. By that time they take classes that are specific to these concentrations and subfields. The electrical engineering major can lead to many types of career paths in all these different fields so if you enjoy any of them, then it may be a good major for you. You will learn a little about all the concentrations but later on you should be able to pick which one you like the most. Most engineering majors have concentrations like this so be sure to look into specifically what you want to get out of a given college major and what career path will be best for you. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Automotive Engineering | Careers and Where to Begin
 
09:00
Automotive engineering is about the design, manufacturing, and operation of cars, motorcycles, trucks, and other automobiles. Within automotive engineering there are a variety of sub disciplines including safety, performance, vehicle dynamics, fuel economy, cost, manufacturing, and more. For those who want to go into automotive engineering, note that most colleges don't offer it as a major in terms of undergrad. The most common major for people to begin with is actually mechanical engineering. Then after you get your bachelor's you either go into the workforce in the automotive industry, or pursue further education specifically in automotive engineering. While in school you will want to get as much exposure to the field by joining clubs like the society of automotive engineers so you can participate in various competitions. This will give you something to put on your resume and get you that hands on experience that is so valuable for your career. One big area of research at the moment is self driving cars. This is where you'll see much more than just mechanical engineering working on these vehicles. People from all disciplines including electrical engineers, computer engineers, materials engineers, computer scientists, and more are needed for these projects. However, there are more areas of research that are briefly mentioned in the video beyond self driving cars. *************************************************** Forbes Article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/quora/2017/06/27/what-will-mechanical-engineers-do-after-most-cars-go-electric/#459db26e6387 *************************************************** ► For more information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************************** ► Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ► PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ► Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Physics Vs Electrical Engineering: How to Pick the Right Major
 
11:35
The undergraduate curriculum for physics and electrical engineering have some similarities that students may not be aware of. With both majors you get to see circuits, basics physics concepts, and even electromagnetic waves. Physics majors will see more math in their curriculum, while electrical engineers do more labs and learn more equipment. Typically engineers will have higher pay and job opportunities than science majors. However, that shouldn't cause students to not pursue a degree in physics. Physics majors have a wide range of careers from engineering jobs to research jobs to programming jobs. Just make sure you plan ahead for what you want to do in your career, and cater your 4 years in college to that future success. Physics majors have multiple concentrations that aren't discussed in this video but just know their curriculum can go many different ways and you should do more research on those topics. If high level math and physics does interest you BUT you still want to go into electrical engineering. I recommend you concentrate in RF or optics because in those concentrations you learn MORE physics concepts but apply them to engineering principles. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

What is Pre-Med? | How to Prepare For Medical School and What You Should Know
 
06:56
When entering into college many students plan on becoming medical doctors, but one thing that students are often confused about is "What is the best pre-med major?" Historically students have used Chemistry and Biology to satisfy their prerequisites for medical school, however, this is not a requirement. In fact, many schools have seen an increase in the number of Liberal Arts applicants. You will learn why just having strong academics is not enough to get into medical school and what factors make you a strong applicant. In this video, you will learn what it means to be pre-med, the classes you will be required to take, and the key steps you will need to follow in order to get into medical school. Medical admission boards are most interested in your grades, your extracurriculars, a high MCAT score, and how you conduct yourself in your interviews. Getting into medical school is very competitive and there is no perfect formula, but if you follow these steps you will start yourself in the right direction to get into the medical school of your dreams. *************************************************** ► For more information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************************** ► Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ► PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ► Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Space | How to Get a Career In Astronomy/Astrophysics
 
10:26
This video will cover how to get into space research (such as astrophysics or astronomy) and some research that is going on. For those looking into space related majors, your best options are astronomy and astrophysics. However, as an undergrad you will usually just start as a physics major then pick a more specific discipline in grad school. You also will need to get a PhD if you want to do work in astrophysics or astronomy. There really aren't jobs in these fields for those with just bachelor's degrees. Although the field is very competitive, if you have a true interest for the subject, most people will tell you to pursue it. Even if you don't land a job that you want, astrophysicists and astronomers can find work in other fields such as finance, engineering, software development, teaching, and more. *************************************************** ► For more information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************************** ► Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ► PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ► Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep

Should I Get Further Education (Master's, PhD, MBA, and More)?
 
12:38
In this video I discuss whether you should get further education beyond a bachelor's degree. There are many types of further schooling you can go into including a master's and phd, medical school, nursing school, pharmacy school, law school, MBA, etc. For many careers like becoming a doctor, dentist, or vet you definitely need that further education, but for many other careers it's not so obvious. People get an MBA when they want to go into a business related field or management of some kind. An MBA is something that can also help you ease your way into the business field from another field like engineering. However, you should wait a few years and get real world experience before pursuing an MBA because it doesn't always help and isn't always needed. Engineers really don't NEED to get anything past a bachelor's in order to start their career. A master's does help for those who want to go more into research though. The people doing research and design work at companies are typically those with higher degrees. Students who are considering chemistry, biochemistry, or biology should really consider getting a master's (assuming they are not going into healthcare like becoming a doctor, pharmacist, etc). It's been said by a lot of graduates that they felt it was tough to move up in their career with just a bachelor's in one of those sciences. If you want to do more of the design work in medicine as an example, you'll need to go beyond a bachelor's. For math and physics you also don't NEED to get a master's or PhD in order to start your career. Pure math students usually will get a master's and PhD because they want to work in academia doing research/become a professor. If you want to do physics research as well then you should get a master's or PhD. Overall getting further education, specifically a master's or PhD, is a great way to increase your salary, learn more about a field, qualify for certain jobs, or have a change in your career. Some of the downsides include how much it costs and the time it will take. Make sure to do your own research on the field you want to go into so you know whether it's worth the time and money.

Artificial intelligence is an increasingly fast growing field with more and more innovations coming up all the time. You can see artificial intelligence being used in finance, gaming, healthcare, self driving cars, email spam filtering, and much more. One of the big fields of artificial intelligence is machine learning. Machine learning is making software that is able to learn from past experiences. One example of this is AlphaGo which is an A.I. project made by deepmind that was able to beat the best go player in the world, in a game of go. AlphaGo wasn't programmed with strategies though, it was just programmed to learn.

Aeronautics Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHfI5JbiWhE In this video I discuss "What is aerospace engineering?" The aerospace engineering major can be broken up into two main branches, aeronautics and astronautics. This video will focus on astronautics which is the design of things that will go into space. Aerospace engineering students will all take the same classes in the beginning of college, then branch off into their respective concentration probably in their third year. Students in aerospace engineering will learn about many subsystems and components of a spacecraft including propulsion, guidance and navigation, thermal, attitude determination and control, and more. Undergrad will give you knowledge in all these topics but you will not be an expert in one. If you want to go into design work you may want to pursue a master's degree or you need to work your way up at your job. For those who are debating between aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering then be aware mechanical engineers have much more job opportunity. Mechanical engineers can work on spacecrafts but can also apply their knowledge to lots of other sectors, whereas aerospace engineers would focus solely on spacecrafts. *************************************** For information on math, science, and engineering majors, check us out at https://majorprep.com *************************************** ►Patreon: https://patreon.com/majorprep ►PayPal: https://www.paypal.me/majorprep ►Facebook: https://facebook.com/majorprep
