Can I get through an Engineering course with an IQ of 89.

Can I get through an Engineering course with an IQ of 89. When I first got the results I was shocked but after thinking about it i realized that it makes a lot of sense. I struggled with Algebra 1 and 2 in highschool and am scared of taking a course in college and realizing i cant do it.

    Why do you want to do engineering in the first place?

      I have always been interested in space flight and rocketry, It has always been a dream of mine to work in the areospace industry and now that I am starting to realize I might not be able to do it.
      I feel like shit realizing this.

        Brother, nothing is impossible if you are disciplined and put your soul to it everyday. The only thing telling you if you should do it is if you feel joy in doing it. Also there will be moments of hardship, as all occupations will, what will get you through those moments is that you are doong what is of most importance to you.

        A lot of people are interested in certain fields because of some childhood interest or political reason. But when they actually look into it they mind find the actual work itself boring, the work that they would be doing daily. You should look at the things engineers do on a daily basis and ask yourself if you woupd be into doing that. Of course, you shouldn't let the results of some test dictate what you can or can't do but just be sure of what you really want to do. If you want to work in the space industry there are a lot of ways to do that without going into engineering. NASA offers some summer programs and internships and stuff for students, you should apply for those.

        hey butthole. It’s only impossible if you think it is. The only trait you need is grit and an unwillingness to quit. People aren’t good at math because along the line somewhere we missed a fundamental. Find where that is, practice practice practice. Also read the fricking examples.

    you can't. you should give up
    in fact, you should give up on everything, I don't think you'll ever get a girlfriend being this dumb, and any goal you attempt in life is bound to fail

    I struggled with math too but now I regret not pursuing STEM. Abstract reasoning can get better when you're older and when you're inclined to practice and enjoy logical puzzles at a level you can handle. However if it's just a way to make money and rather do something else then what's the point?

    I would way rather have gone into linguistic anthropology but knowing it pays garbage I instead fell back on my natural aptitude for mathematics to earn a 4 year degree in engineering so that I could now earn a steady middle class living. I don't recommend it if you aren't prepared for every class to be a math class because every class is going to be a progressively more challenging math class.

        sure thing but what about all the engineering program electives? you going to pretend those aren't math classes?

          Those are not math classes. Although, you will be applying some of the things you learned in math classes.

            yeah sure thing bud. go take fluid mechanics or structural analysis and get back to me with your take when you know what you're on about.

    It is not hard, I am low iq and I have done it. You haven't put enough work/time in to it or you simply don't know how to study and learn things and/or haven't got appropriate study material. Each brain and each mind are slightly different, I found that high iq people simply read stuff, do couple of problems and understand things relatively easily, for mids and low iqs you have to really look into different ways of studying and learning and find what works for you.

    you might enjoy construction, many engineers envy the people who actually get to build and see first hand the things they design
    just by asking this question you've proven 'wise' enough to excel in construction compared to the average nimrod who's quitting every other month and yet to finish paying for their oversized pickup
    plus you'd be getting paid more than an engineer anyway, not like the brainiacs have as good a union

      He’s unironically probably too dumb even for construction

    Every module of my course within the past 3 years has included some level of maths and about half of them are mathematical application (as opposed to designing or cs). If you have no passion for it and frequently struggle with understanding concepts, I wouldn't recommend it.
    I don't believe your IQ is the determining factor whether you're capable or not. Students only fail because they don't put the time into understanding content and paying attention (or don't have the prerequisite knowledge), and that only comes from not having the passion to pursue that topic.

    Well, your alternative is to never try and live your life wondering what could have been.

    I am looking at mechanical engineering technology degrees right now, it goes up to calc 1 instead of all the way to diffeq. Its a cop out I know but at least I could be a technician somewhere right?

      While I don't think it's impossible for 90 IQ to pass Calc 1 exams if you learned enough, almost all reference material besides the most handholdy is written in a very complicated manner that even I as a 132 IQ often struggle with.
      (Alright, admittedly I only took real analysis, no what Americans call calc, but I don't refer to the material here but rather the style it's presented in and that I believe is replicated in calc books)

      I just don't think it's a useful use of your time.

    No. It's not feasible.
    What you should do is either learn a trade, or go to some private college (i.e. degree mill) and get a degree where you just need to rote learn business lingo.

    Redo the stupid IQ test until you have a better result.
    You should never have taken it in the first place.
    It's a damn infohazard.
    Fix it or stay demoralized.

    Why couldn’t have I been interested in art or some other moron occupation, having this level of interest in areospace and knowing that I probably won’t ever be able to go into it is the worst thing imaginable to me.

      You are only interested because you haven't gone through the workload. And that's not all. Seeing everyone around you breeze through by doing less work than you will be demoralizing as frick. You will develop massive impostor syndrome. I would suggest you attend at least one engineering lecture or math or even physics and see whether you could handle that for 4 yrs.

    Harsh truth time. If you really are 89 IW you should give up. I am not saying you shouldn't try something else or that you should give up on life, I'm just saying Engineering will likely be exceptionally tough for you, to a point where basic minimums that are asked of you by your employer will be difficult to complete. This is no way to spend your life anon. Be happy you asked this question now and not after you wasted a decade chasing something unfeasible.

    If it makes you feel any better about your situation, I am an Electrical Engineer. My job routinely gets less interesting the more money I make, all paths to career advancement are through paper pushing administrative offers, and I work with insufferable yuppies/despicable HR roasties. Most engineers are well-paid wagies, nothing more. The vast, VAST majority of even well-paid stem positions never get to do actually cool shit, and if they do it often pays very poorly for the quality of work demanded or does not last long as a job.

    Is there any way I could possibly be some sort of technician? At least I would still be working in the industry and on relevant hardware.

      Stop asking these moronic questions and try it out. Go be an intern with a tradesman. Asking these questions will demoralize and depress you to the point that you won't feel like doing anything. You'll find more about yourself and your strengths when you try shit out for yourself.

    I must say, 89 is too low, I think you should reconsider your future plans,

    I am not here to demoralize you, but to enlighten you so listen..
    There are 7 types of intelligence.
    Musical, naturalistic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, mathematical, physical, linguistic, and IQ tests only the linguistic and mathematical part. I am a writer and a pharmaceutical engineering student so I have high IQ but I suck at other intelligence types. So your IQ has concluded that you have low linguistic or mathematical prowess, so go and find the other capabilities God has bestowed upon you and cherish them. Life is full of adventures, discoveries, mysteries. Don't lose hope.
