Electronics and Communication – A Failure of Mine

Posted By: KP On July 19, 2009 Under Other Categories

As many of you already know and I am mentioning here again that I am an Electronics and Communication engineering student. But I can’t digest it and have to tell you the truth. In reality it has proved a big failure in my life.

As we all know choosing a career is the most crucial part of one’s life. Like every other student, after 12th I was debating between different branches specially computer science and EC (Electronics and communications). At the time of making this most sensitive decision of my life, me n my parents took reviews from many seniors about which branch to shoot for. At that time EC was in its highest demand. Everybody, whom I talked to, had only two big words to say “EC”. My personal interest was Computer Engineering, as I knew I could do my best in it. Even in reviews all people suggested EC. Parents were also wishing that I should go for EC. Keeping all the suggestions and wishes in mind I headed for EC engineering. Man! Believe me, it was a tuff choice.

I did not have any idea about what EC had in-store for me. Not even the syllabus for EC in those long 4 years of studying. The first year was quite fun and I was happy. But then I happened to face the core subjects of EC. The worst thing was EC contains much of the stuff from physics in detail that I always hated, or say, I was poor in them due to unclear basics. My actual love was computer stuff and I got stuck in circuits and resistors. My very decision for EC proved to be a resistor in my circuit for success. No one was there to guide me correctly at time of choosing career path. All people who guided me to EC thought about some personal interest in EC or just followed the crowd and craze for EC blindly like a layman.

I am getting worst results in my exams. I had never seen failure so closely in my life. I almost met and touched failure. The Electronics and Communication things are not made for me. I am least interested in them. My true love and interest is in computers. Without reading anything, any books today I am solving problems of my friends who are in Computer Engineering. I am helping them in their projects. It is so funny because I have knowledge better than them although I don’t touch any computer engineering books. And on the other side I am struggling to pass the EC subjects that I have chosen.

But as always end justifies the means and that is true in education too. After all these struggling in life people will see my degree results. I know personally why failure is there; if I would have taken computer science I know I would be at my best. So currently I am in 5th semester. Two more years to go but I know what is going to happen. I will get damn low grades. This would prevent me from getting in good institute for masters degree. Have lots of regrets and learned how a single wrong decision can spoil everything.

Forgetting all the mess of my life, now I am hoping that the remaining two years pass by soon and I just want to get it over with. I hope I can clear them.

I had gone through a lot as far as my academic life is concerned, but I don’t want my juniors to go through the same struggle in their life. Keeping this in mind I have started Admission Guideline www.gujaratadmission.com for them. Hope that might prevent many other lives from jumping into a wrong career. My heart still filled with lot of grief, insecurity and regrets; and my future vision going blur, I warn all of you guys out there to believe in yourself and do what you want to do, not what others makes you to do. Good luck!

Please feel free to share your views with me. They mean a lot and are always warmly welcomed.

    Man.. thanks a lot for all this.. i was in same dillema.. actually i have just passed my 12th and all seniors are telling me to chose ECE due to good jobs.. but i have least interest in them.. especially that voltage drop, inductors kinda stuff.. but now I just believed myself and chose computer science even though its recession.. cause i believe in myself and i know that I can do wonders in that field.. even now.. i help computer science students.. working out their problems.. so i guess i will get good grades and then a good job won’t be too far away.. thansk KP for this stuff..

    Buddy this is also what happened for me mate i am now taking Diploma in Mechanical Engineering buddy at that time of completion of my 10th Studies i suddenly choosen diploma in mech buddy which is indeed a top field now.. at that time i don’t have time to deal with computers and internet but later on during my first year of studies i have got my broadband internet connection in my home buddy so i was just in search of making money and later on i wake up too early even 2 AM at morning since i was using 500C+ plan so viewing all bux sites to get money but none payed me… So later on just fun moved to Blogging and get deeply in the blogging world as a result i have Got PR3 and 500+ subscribers in 6 months so later on during my semester exams i can’t concentrate well on studies since all my thinking goes on getting traffic mate…
    So my marks started falling down so atleast i have took a rough and best decision that to sell my blog and now i finally sold it mate…

    Now i am freebie and i really started loving my field and going deep in it mate..
    So my last decision is to close all the things belong to me in internet and going in my way in mechanical is the right way mate..
    I am now just 17 so i must go well in my field in order to shine in my field so i also thought that my life should not ended with computers buddy..
    So my advice to you is better quit all these things mate…

    Thanks for your suggestion balaji, actually I am not behind blogging and traffic. I do blog because I do like it, not for money. Main things is my interest in things coming in EC and that I hate actually. Now how can one go deep into what he hates?

    hello, It’s nothing like hard, but if you are least interested in your physics fundas waves,Kirchhoff law,voltage drops you should go for other branch as chetan told

    coz till now i know nothing about core ec topics,but i as 12th i liked semiconductors..
    i just want to knw what type of physics and maths is involved in it??with context 2 12th standard syllabus!
