8 weeks down, 5 to go.

At this time of the year, I always finds myself asking: “How is the semester almost over?!” I feel like I just started classes yesterday.

I just finished up a crazy week of midterms – I had 4 exams in one week: MECH 325 (Mechanical Design I), MECH 326 (Mechanical Design II), MECH 368 (Instrumentation), and MECH 392 (Manufacturing Processes). They are all super interesting and practical courses – if you’re in the General Mechanical Engineering stream, all of these courses will be apart of your standard time table – but I’m certainly happy that I don’t have to stress about exams anymore…Until finals.

Now, I finally have time to catch up on assignments, project work, extracurricular clubs, and my favourite TV shows. Sweeeeet.

We would love to hear from all of your readers out there. Send Siddhant or me and e-mail, or leave us a comment about what you’d like us to post about.



  1. i am in 12th standard yet ,in india ,my final exams are in march,

    i want to do mechanical engeneering from UBC ,what subjects shall i pay more attention from now ,for good performance in UBC MECH later…..

    1. Hi Ritik,

      Thank you for your comment!

      Good courses to pay attention to are: Math 11, Math 12, Calculus, Physics 11, Physics 12. These are core topics in Mechanical Engineering.

  2. Happy new year!

    Your words remind me what I had in a couple years ago when I was exactly where you are now.

    I studied ME in a univ. from the U.S and graduated with bachelors degree 5 years ago, and I am concerning to take MAsc for ME. Regarding this, I would like to ask a couple of questions if you don’t mind.

    1. I have a bachelor’s degree from the U.S but not from English country( I am from South Korea), do I need to take English Test? Because some universities wave it for someone like me who graduated their bachelor’s degree from the U.S

    2. it says GRE is not mandatory for M.E applicants, and I am wondering how many people normally get accepted into the program without having GRE score? some? many? none?

    Please let me know and I cheer your effort and hard work!

    Thank you very much.
