About this deal
Our team have benchmarked the best laptops for engineering students from top brands like Apple, HP, Dell, and Asus. As part of our extensive review process, we've dug into each one, comparing specs, speed, size, and weight. From aerospace to mechanical, electrical to software engineering, we've tested a diverse range of engineering laptops primed to enhance productivity, creativity, and success throughout your course. Tip #1 — Keep a notebook— Yes, it seems strange that keeping a notebook would be the first tip about notebooks. But many engineers, especially firmware and embedded software engineers, rarely seem to keep notebooks. Engineers that do keep a notebook often start a project strong, keeping diligent notes and recording every thought. But then, when the project heats up, the notebook is thrown to the curb. Hence the tip to keep the notebook. Gaining the discipline to continually keep notes is the key. Multiple students can also work on a Digital Engineering Notebook at the same time, allowing many more voices to contribute to the Notebook and more than one student to work together in real time to explain an idea or create a drawing.
Documenting work in an Engineering Notebook is a widely used engineering and design industry practice. This practice can help students develop life skills that they may use in their academic and professional future. By following the Engineering Design Process and documenting that process in an Engineering Notebook, students practice project management, time management, brainstorming, effective interpersonal collaboration, and written communication skills. The use of an electronic notebook may tempt an engineer to simply overwrite or erase an error. Rather than erasing or removing information in an electronic notebook, though, engineers should follow the best practices from a paper notebook. Simply add strikethrough to the font and then use strikethrough on an error and fill in the correct information. An engineer can even add a comment and date the strikethrough just like with a paper notebook.However, to ensure consistency in the judging process and to remove unintended format-based bias, all teams at an event need to be judged in the same format. For example, if digital Engineering Notebooks are being evaluated for some teams ahead of the event, then physical notebooks should not be evaluated for other teams who bring theirs on the day of the event. The type of notebook judging (digital or physical) should be decided by the Event Partner and communicated to all teams well in advance of the event. Most notebook software has versions that run on different devices – so that information recorded in the field on a tablet or cell phone can be seamlessly accessed from the office laptop.
A great value gaming laptop whose RTX-equipped model effortlessly doubles as a laptop for engineering students running graphically-demanding programs. It’s not the lightest machine you can buy, but we found performance solid and the 15.6-inch FHD display bright and clear. That's when I realized how taking notes can spark engineering inspiration and in my mad rush to find the perfect note taking app or software suite remembered not to devalue pen to paper notes. So naturally, I began to come up with ideas for how I would want a notebook layout to look like.For more screen real estate to really zone in on the details, the Dell XPS 17 is tough to beat. Despite the size, the 17in laptop is incredibly thin and lightweight - ideal for carrying around campus. In our tests, it easily tore through even demanding tasks like video encoding and 3D rendering.
