This is just out of curiosity, /tesla/.
I'm a first year Mechanical Engineering student, and in my uni almost everyone is a regular joe who mainly drinks alcohol at parties and such. I don't know if that's just where I live.
Considering 420chan is an imageboard for people that enjoy doing drugs, and we have an Engineering board, tell me, what drugs do you usually do? Since I don't know any dopehead engineers, I'd like to know what do you fancy the most (Of course, I know that not all of us do drugs. But I'm asking the ones who do).

Well, I have the same problem here, one of my classmates does MDMA sometimes. but I`ve done a lot more and mainly psychedelic stuff. the rest of my class is either a beerfag or a gamer that doesn`t come outside. And I`m also part of the latter.

I'm doing an internship this summer, about to enter my senior year for mechanical engineering in the fall. Used to smoke pot until i was arrested my sophomore year, now I stick to legal alcohol. The company I'm with right now does do random drug tests.

More than half my class smoked weed at some point in college, but I only smoked with a few of them. Didn't really find out until my senior year when everyone was complaining about quitting to take drug screens for jobs.

Ecstacy, weed, alcohol, speed, shrooms. Those mostly.
The whole notion that "An engineer is like X and does Y" is super retarded. It doesn't define you as a person and you don't need to fit in a mold. It's like those people complaining "Boohoo, I study electrical engineering so I can't get laid." when those peoples' problem is that they are boring and don't meet and can't talk to girls.

When you get your first job as an Engineer you will realize that a large amount of us take Psychedelics, primarily LSD.

Did you find that LSD aided in your understanding of some of the more abstract concepts of your field? Or did you just take that shit for personal development/exploration.

Most of my mates drink -- albeit a lot -- but it's mostly good beer and sometimes whiskey. I'm in leccy but honestly, I think it's because we stress out enough in the day (not necessarily because of the work but because people are idiots) that we don't need to be going para in the day and a nice buzz it better than getting spaced. Also, if you need to be function in class/labs the next day and you're messing with some serious kit a beer hangover is better than a weed hangover (in my opinion).

All the engie queers at my school needed speed to succeed and booze to cope.
God damn it, college.

Anyway I didn't even know this board existed until today, thanks recent posts!

Yes exactly, very serious scientific research.

>>6383
This. I like shrooms a lot personally, lots of engie and science major friends of mine like RCs, but I'm holding out for real acid when I try it for the first time.

I don't want to encourage anyone to smoke and then end up failing a test, but... When I was in your situation I realized it was kind of silly to quit so preemptively. I did a lot of research online (employee handbooks, employment contracts etc) and found out which companies I had applied to drug tested. The job I ended up at is great, super chill coworkers, and my bosses never mentioned drugs of any kind in the hiring process. And I got to keep smoking weed every day.

This is sad but true, don't become one of those kids OP. There are many who absolutely need study drugs to pass class, or alcohol to feel relaxed at parties.
And if you're from the U.S. don't let yourself get so depressed a doctor can push antidepressants on you. A lot of people get depressed in their first few years of school because they don't know how to handle themselves. When that happens you just need to some time to be introspective about your own life. If you go to the health services at your school they will tell you the answer is a pill and try to get you hooked on something terrible.

Weed and beer mostly, hard liquor makes me do stupid things and psychedelics are hard to come by and don't really wanna do them regularly.

I smoke weed and do some other drugs (amphetamine, /psy/, /opi/, /benz/, /dis/) from time to time. Mostly just weed though. I'm in Electrical Engineering at a good uni in Europe, finishing my 4th semester atm. I actually have my second last exam tomorrow. Can't wait for exam session to be over, I'm gonna get stoned and do speed like there's no tomorrow.

I just finished my 6th semester of electromechanical engineering at a university in Belgium. I'm a daily smoker who likes to drink and consume a bit of MDMA from time to time (6 weeks rule) at good techno parties.

well i have mostly 15/30 guys who are into alchohol me included.
i got a guy who i smoke weed with but i dont realy trust him we just hang because we do weed or speed or xtc. so yeah most mechanical engineers are alchies since most of them come from rural areas (like me)

I'm on phenelzine and guanfacine, and take melatonin for sleeping. EE. I liek to drink coffee, at least a little, every day.

When I drink, it upsets my stomach and makes me feel stupid afterwards, with no improvement in mood, so I try not to. I like to use nicotine, but it makes me eat less, fucks up my sleep, and makes it difficult to get out of bed. I kinda feel more relaxed but I think I get less done, idunno.

My housemate has a MechE friend that probably drinks a bunch, the guy is a Chad.

I'd probably be hooked on opiods if I got any. I was prescribed a benzo and I looked at porn for like 4 hours each night, slept 3.5, and felt rested for over a week straight. That was only a low dose. Never again. Hallucinogens maybe, I'd be worried about my nausea response. I've been prescribed Ritalin and Adderall, at the same time, to no effect. Benzedrine made my dick shrink and heart go crazy.

Yup.

Second year ME undergrad here. During the school year I mostly just smoke bud and drink, occasional molly here and there. Then come festival season it's the perfect time to enjoy some psychs.

I think drugs and engineering/physics goes well for me
I am a seasoned stoner and about to graduate from an engineering school and plan on studying in this field
I love tripping on DXM + Weed combo and reading about quantum physics and doing complex equations it just feels like I am about to discover all secrets of the universe
tried to get into the string theory but it's impossible for me right now

Here's what I've found personally. 3rd year Electrical Engineering here.

One thing that struck me upon getting to college was that about almost every engineer I met smoked weed. Which was surprising considering most of the "smart"/high achievers I knew in high school were totally goody-goody.
granted, a lot of first-year engineers end up switching out because waaah it's too hard, or dropping out entirely - there's a lot of "imagineers" in year one

And of course weed smokers tend to do moar psychs, so there's that. Not nearly as many engineers that like to trip though. Also, there's your few choice people that trip every once in a while but aren't too fond of weed - I find these people tend to have exceptionally all-around balanced lives and are the smartest generally.

Finally, of course, pretty fucking much everyone is all about their stimulants, particularly around finals time, as you might guess. Hence why I sit here at 4am wigging out on methylphenidate.


Currently though I'm actually doing a co-op (rotating internship) at this shitty computer hardware company. As far as I can tell everyone there are straight shooters. HOWEVER the other day one of my younger coworkers inquired as to whether I could get him adderall, since he'd never tried it. He told me he'd gotten some ritalin but, blah, lol, you know. And then he dug in his bag and handed me 3 pills saying here take em if you want. So I lol'd and fixed him up with some capsules of some of my darknet speed paste. Should be fun hearing from him on Monday.

Senior in chemical engineering here. About to graduate with a 3.9.

I smoke weed every day. I drink at least four times a week (not counting a beer or two with dinner, which is a daily ritual for me). I do shrooms/LSD occasionally, whenever I have the opportunity to go somewhere cool with my friends to do it (I'm over tripping in my room). I go out/go to parties Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays just about every week, and maybe some Tuesdays and Wednesdays depending on what's going on.

You can get all kinds of fucked up and still succeed as an engineer, as long as you learn to manage your time. If you do your work in the late afternoon/early evening, then you can drink, smoke pot and do whatever in the night. I've never had to pull an all nighter for school work.

Another big thing is go to class. Maybe you're still in the high school phase where everyone goes to every class, but as you go on in engineering, you'll see a lot of people who just don't show up. Most of my classes are usually about 50% full. People skip class, don't know what's going on, then get wrecked on exams, and act surprised. Just go to class.

Anyway, I hope you find some cool engineers to get stoned with.

Why does he sound like a douche bag, it doesn't say anything about him telling the guy its not what ever it is. And hopefully dude would be smart enough to realize it doesn't have an imprint on it
