Mechanical Engineering
 Mechanical
Engineering field requires an
understanding of core concepts
including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics,
material science, and structural analysis.
Mechanical engineers use these core principles
along with tools like CAD and product lifecycle
management to design and
analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment
and machinery, heating and cooling
systems, transport systems, air and water crafts,
robotics, medical devices, weapons, and more.

 Energy, Civil Infrastructure and Climate
 Structural Engineering
What do structural engineers do?
We try to analyze things we don't
really know about
By simplifying it to something
that we can easily analyze
And then we convince the public
that we know everything ...

Application Tips:
Take Engineering classes at Chabot depending
on the University you want to transfer.
Start application and personal statement early.
Look for alliance programs like TAP/TAG.
Why UC Berkeley?
 One
of the best Engineering school nationwide(top
3) and best public university in the world.
 Close to home. Can commute from home.
 Cheaper tuition and expenses (financial aid covers
100% tuition)
 Diversity
Transition to UC Berkeley
 After
the first midterm: HOLLY MOLLY! WHAT WAS
THAT?
 All exams are time intensive.
 Very Fast Paced classes.
 Huge classes (over 120 students per class)
 Tough Assignments
 Not everyone’s a genius here, so DO NOT
underestimate yourself!!
 Over crowded college!
Transfer Experience
 Overwhelmed
by:
 Extracurricular activities: ballroom dancing,
research, church, community services, ...
 Social life: roommates, church fellowship, honor
society, classmates, …
 Decal Classes – classes taught by students: Learn
to fly: Private pilot ground school, Christian
foundations, Meditation in practice, …
 Seminars, info sessions: FREE FOOD and a chance
to win an iPad
 Homework, group projects
Chabot Vs. UCB
 UCB
has 32 libraries
 Each classes have a discussion section which is
taught by a graduate student (GSI).
 Amount of time spent on the assignments (30+
hours/week)
 Lots of resources and opportunities for hands on
projects.
 Lots of engineering clubs, honor societies,
fraternities.
FSAE at UC Berkeley
• Student run group, from design to racing
– Get hands on experience building a race car
– Compete against other universities

Concrete Canoe
Hull team: Design
Structural analysis: Modeling, simulating
Research team: Testing new materials
Construction team: Casting, painting
The rest: Practice rowing in the weight
room
A concrete canoe that can float
and go as fast as a dragon boat
UREKA!
Few words of advice…

Don't fall behind in your classes: Spend more time
studying in the library.
Working smart: prioritize, utilize all the available
resources, know what works better for you: some are
visual learners, kinesthetic learners.
Manage time well: don't spend time on stuff you
already know
Form study groups, make friends, don't hesitate to talk
about homework or ask questions.
Try to find internships or research positions. Think about
real life applications of what you learn.
Go to Office hours and Math Lab!!
Get involved in project based(Engineering and
science) clubs.

MANAGE YOUR TIME EFFICIENTLY
FAIL ?
 Of
course I fail too. In facts, I've failed so many
times
 But KEEP TRYING ANYWAY

As long as you try, you're awesome even though
you might not be able to achieve any of those.
