Our oldest Grandson starts college this morning. He is majoring in Architectural Engineering at Oklahoma State University. He is part of the honors program. He has been a member of the National Honor Society since the 8th grade. Good level headed kid. Raised by his mom. We have to wait another 7 years for the next in line to take his shot at higher education.

Congratulations for the family support that got him this far. He will do well and hopefully stay with the engineering major. My youngest grand daughter is also OSU today starting the year as a junior. I wish him well in this.

Thanks Mark, your granddaughter has accomplished what so many fail at. We need to get the crew together again if this crazy stuff will ease up a bit. Hope you are well.

Come on Martin, we all know a kid that smart has none of your gene pool in it...... grin Seriously though, something tells me the kid will do great. If he's that smart AND level headed he'll go a long way.

I'm sure that made you proud, Martin. I know taking my two daughters off to college did for me.
Wishing him success at school and the following profession. thumbs_up

You should be proud of your grandson Martin. He sounds like a good person. College is a great life experience.

Great choice of an occupation Martin that your grandson is going to school to be .. In my working days of heavy construction using blue prints I have worked with architectural engineers and architects ...it is not an easy schooling and lots of hard work studies to do so and become an engineer .. some engineers that I worked around took more schooling after graduating engineer school and took architect classes ..

As long as he's an architectural engineer (meaning engineering the structure so it won't fall down), and not just an architect (who does the artsy-fartsy building stuff), he'll do well. Although architects do pretty well also if they're creative. Full disclosure: My daughter is an architect. wink

Architectural Engineering is typically a 4 year curriculum, while Architects need 5 years (maybe to cram that artsy-fartsy stuff into their heads). grin
