The Most Difficult Engineering Courses to Study?

Here, we want to talk about the very core types of engineering courses we have. I mean the basic ones that contributed to civilisation in the very beginning. Military engineering is particularly excluded here because it is very rarely {if at all} studied in tertiary institutions. The most difficult types of core courses to study will be listed in the descending order.

  1. Civil engineering

This is a professional discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment including works like bridges, roads, canals, dams and buildings. It is the second oldest type of it’s kind.

I call civil the most difficult because it is a combination of mechanical engineering, architecture and urban and regional planning. It’s crazy studying one of these courses let alone A COMBINATION OF THE THREE!!! It is in many ways similar to military engineering which is the first and oldest form of it’s kind. The mechanical  part is needed for the knowledge of materials used for construction, architecture is needed for the implementation of the design used for construction and urban and regional planning knowledge is needed because the construction done is taking place across a very large area of land.

Graduating from a university with a first class honours in the course is pretty difficult you know…

  1. Electrical Engineering

This is a field that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. From my observation, the theoretical part isn’t so difficult. The vast applications of practical involving this course in school is what makes the course moderately hard to pass. In the theoretical part too, the wide expanse of formulas tend to make the course a hard nut to crack.

  1. Mechanical Engineering

This is a course that mainly involves the fabrication of different types of machines. What makes this course rank as one of the difficult courses is the complexity of designing these machines. Other than that, most things are moderate on the difficulty scale.

  1. Computer Engineering

This is a discipline that integrates several fields of electrical and computer science required to develop computer hardware and software. This ranks as the fourth hardest course.
