Engineering Students -II

badge-of-honor


My previous post spoke about gals.. Now about guys…

  • Nerdy :One extreme case is these nerdy guys who sit in the first bench, keep answering in the class, ask 101 doubts.. These guys wouldnt bunk even one class.. Even if everyone in the class was ready to bunk, these guys would refuse to bunk.. But they are very knowledgeable and quite intelligent.. I definitely would prefer an intelligent guy anytime…
  • Showoff : most of the guys are of this type.. These guys want to just showoff that they are very much brilliant.. want to impress the lecturers, girls..They again belong to the copy-paste category but their way of presenting their work is good…
  • Copy-paste category : These guys dont think that they need to learn anything worthwhile.. they are chilled out.. college is a recreation place, to sit under the tree commenting on people, to roam around with girl friends… such people are very resourceful.. they know where to collect materials, programs, projects from..

I remember one of my classmate A who used to mug up programs completely including the printf statements.. I was shocked to see the extent to which he could memorize.. he used to be the first person to complete the practical exam in our batch.. Just before the exam he would catch hold of me and ask me the overview of each program so that he can answer when the examiner questions him..

Another time I remember how this A had taken a project from his senior in a floppy.. he hadnt opened the floppy even once at home.. he brought the floppy directly to the lab exam without even seeing its contents once.. it was a linux project and this is what happened:

A: Hi As, I am not able to mount the floppy.. can you help me mount it?

Me: Oh! it is saying it cannot mount.. why? is the floppy corrupted or something

A: No.. I dont think so.. actually I dont know because a senior had given this to me

Me: Oh! lets remove the floppy and then try in my machine once..

A: floppy is in my bag.. should we insert it?

Me: <totally shocked> how can you mount a floppy without inserting into the machine? :O

This guy got through campus interview before everyone else and now is in US.. what would you say for that??

Phew..those weird engineering days!! Met all kinds of people.. Had proper fun and geeky time too.. Engineering students can be broadly classified like this-

Gals:

  • Mugging queens: gals who mug answers.. they know only as much as it is given in the textbook.. you ask them why something is like this, they wont know.. 75% of the gals belong to this category.. their purpose is to get through the exams (not to learn), then do some job and ultimate goal in life is to get married..
