If You Cheat In Engineering Classes…


This is so true that my curriculum actually included a course where they spent the semester showing us that medical doctors get to bury their mistakes one at a time, while us engineers had no limit on how many people we could kill due to gross stupidity.

If you consider a career that involves public safety in any matter (in other words, if you will be working on something that can make a difference between somebody living and dying), the moment you are contemplating to cheat on a test is when you have to take a really hard look at your priorities and ask yourself why in the hell you are pursuing that career path.
