How Can We Help?

Engineering is tough...

Here are some helpful tips!

Set Priorities

As engineering students, we get a lot of work thrown our way. It is important to realize which tasks are of high priority, and what can be put off temporarily. Each night, write down what you wish to accomplish and number them into a list in order of highest to lowest priority. By beginning with what's most important, you will experience less stress if you are not able to finish everything - the less important work you didn't finish can be carried over to the next day!

Have a Set Time for Studying

Consistency is key! Dedicate a couple of hours each night for doing homework, reviewing lecture notes, completing labs, etc. Get into a daily routine of doing this and you will experience less pressure before midterms and assignment due dates. This will also lighten your workload on weekends, giving you time to enjoy other activities.

Use Your Peers as Resources

If you are struggling with something, chances are many other people are in the same situation as you! Don't be afraid to reach out to your classmates for homework help or group studying. Discipline group chats can help a lot - make sure you've joined yours!

Set Time Aside for Other Activities

Balance is key for stress management. As much as planning your study time is important, it is equally important to plan out your free time. Make sure you give yourself time for things you enjoy. Here are some ideas:

  • Go for a walk/Go to the gym
  • Read a book
  • Hang out with friends
  • Watch your favourite movie/TV show
  • Listen to music
  • Take up a new hobby
