Is mechanical engineering hard? If yes then how hard and difficult it is? I find myself of great interest in mechanical engineering. But whenever I tell anyone that I am going to get admission in mechanical engineering, they tell me to think twice before finalizing the decision because it’s a hard engineering course. Is it really true that mechanical engineering degree is tough and hard as compared to other engineering degrees? Some of my friend who is doing software engineering from an engineering college told me that in his college ratio of students who fail is greater in mechanical engineering department every semester because they need to study tough and difficult courses.
