Hi everyone!
Long time no post! I'm just curious to see who's on here. :)

Wow, this community is inactive. Please visit the TESC webpage if you are an engineering UCSD student. It is the Triton Engineering Student Council. If you are wondering what that means, it is like the federal government for all the engineering UCSD organizations, frats, honors societies, clubs, etc.

At every weekly meeting, each org reports what they are up to and has at least one representative there--or at least sends a video of himself/herself if they really can't make it.

TESC is the only UCSD organization that is able to list all the engineering activities for all the engineering orgs in one calander. (It's slow at loading--be patient.)

TESC has a townhall feel to it. All the leaders for orgs are there and anyone who is an engineering student can walk in and listen or participate in debates or voting that goes on--try to pretend to join TESC before doing all this. (A sign in sheet goes around at some of the meetings and you can choose to join none or as many subcommittees as you like. A subcommittee is like a group of people in TESC who get together and decide to do something for TESC or engineering students in general.)

There are about 4000 engineering students and about only 500 are actively in an engineering org. You don't need to join TESC. You can join an individual org or start your own and be added to TESC. These are the active orgs who are listed as part of TESC and links to their webpages.

I post this with the hopes that more student contributed projects would appear again such as the UCSD Pascal System which according to this website undergrads help create and later moved on to do other great things. 

I cannot emphasize enough how blessed we all are to be a UCSD and budding engineers. If you use your few years wisely, you can accomplish some great things. These great things don't come easy, but TESC or engineering student orgs can be a step in the right direction. You never know whom you will meet and what significant things you can accomplish. Be inspired and inspire others. 

SAT analogy:
state government : federal government :: engineering org government/leadership : TESC

Matlab is a funny thing
Matlab is a funny thing. I don't think anyone actually likes it, but we all have to use it at one time or another. For instance, I have to use it for CSE 190 and CSE 151 for programming assignments. The thing I've noticed about it is that every Web site I've read about Matlab programming says to *not* use for loops. I'm still learning how to program in Matlab, but now I can optimize my programs so that they work tons faster than my unoptimized, for loop using applications.

Anyways, who here's currently using Matlab for their classes? Any horror (or good stories) about it?

Math symbols in LJ
Off topic, but does anyone know how to post math stuff on LJ? The classes I'm taking this quarter require quite a bit of math, and it'd be nice if I can have it look somewhat nice for this community. Thanks!

Hey I'm currently an undeclared freshman right now heading towards the Mechanical Engineering major and I'm a bit behind on my lower division classes (did Math 20A, Chem 6A for winter) so I was wondering if any of you had tips for making 5 year plans or something wise to do.

Who's taking what? (Introductions)

So that everyone has an idea of who everyone else is, what's everyone taking this quarter and next? Also, how'd you find this community and what major/year is everyone? And anything else people should know.

I'm taking:

Winter 2006:
CSE 120
ENG 100
ENG 100L
SOCC 140

Spring 2006:
CSE 151
CSE 111
CSE 171 (tentative)
ENG 100L

I'm a 3rd year Computer Science person. :)

Welcome to ucsdengineers!
(reposted from profile page)


Didn't show up to lecture? Or just need help understanding the homework? You've come to the right place! ucsdengineers is designed for UCSD engineering students to get help with the material they're studying or find somewhere that'll help.

Classes/departments supported:

Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE)
Computer Science and Engineering (CSE)
Bioengineering (BENG)
Structural Engineering (SE)
Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE)
(and anything else that's required by any of the engineering majors)

Ground rules:

This community's pretty open, but there are a few rules everyone needs to abide by:

1. NO POSTING ANSWERS TO EXAMS OR HOMEWORK! Trust me, you don't really want to go up on academic dishonesty charges; punishments range from being suspended a quarter all the way up to explusion. Any violators will have their posts deleted and their accounts banned without warning. (This is one of two most serious offenses; see below)

2. No harassment/illegal activity. Really, you shouldn't be condoning illegal activities on a public forum. The latter category will result in an automatic ban and possible referral to law enforcement. You have been warned.

3. No spam. Fairly self-explanatory; no one wants to hear about your appendage enlargement patch or whatever it is these days.

4. No off-topic posts. Basically, anything that doesn't have remotely anything to do with the Jacobs School of Engineering will be deleted.

5. Have fun! These rules might sound like huge downers, but they're needed to cover everyone here. Plus the beach is literally next door; who wouldn't have fun?

Consequences of violating the rules

First offense: (not cheating or illegal content) private warning to poster(s) and request to remove content. If content's not removed, the moderators will remove it.
Second offense: automatic ban/removal of offending post (first offense if cheating or illegal content)
