Now I've switched to ET/IT, starting Wednesday. I was able to transfer quite a few

It's a good degree, I really enjoyed it (for the most part, there will always be things
one does not enjoy as much as others of course). My favourite courses in the first
year were probably calculus/Analysis (yup, I'm a bit deranged ) and mechanics.

If ME still has as many students as it used to when I was there you'll most likely be
coming through the ET/IT buildings quite a lot (the largest lecture hall is in that area),
so maybe we could meet up at some point. It would certainly nice to talk computers
with somebody in person for a change, I don't really know anyone IRL who's as
enthusiastic about the subject as I am.

Either way, I wish you a good start!

PS: If anyone starts whining about how hard it is to pass the first year exams: As long
as you do your homework diligently you shouldn't have a problem. It's a lot of work (at
least it was for me ), but totally feasible.
