Engineering majors are often bashed by those in programs with lesser course loads (especially business and arts) for having no social life. While it's true that we don't have anywhere near as much time to socialize as they do, we are more than capable of leading very normal social lives.
Also, engineering majors are pretty much guaranteed a job with at least 50k starting salary after finishing school.
Arts Major: "Hah, look at this loser in engineering, spending all his time studying, while I'm gettin laid!"

*The engineering major pulls up to a drive thru window in his BMW, smoking hot wife sitting in the passenger seat. The arts major opens the window."
Arts Major: "Can I take your order?"
Engineering Major: "You were saying?"
Engineering Major: No, but do you know chemically how the gas you put into your engine produces the heat necessary to power the engine, as well as how this heat is converted to usable mechanical work?
Mechanic: ... That will be $43.50.
2. A major that emphasizes way too much math and physics that will rarely be applied to a real world situation and not enough foreign language study, which would actually be useful.

Other major Student 2: "Some of them do make good money, but engineering is a alot of work. Are you good at math?"
Freshman 1: "LOL no, I hate math. I'm a mechanical engineering major btw. Wha's your major?"
Other major student 2: Biochemistry.
Freshman 1: "Lame. You should do biomedical engineering. You'll make more money. The world needs more engineers you know."
Student 2: "True the world does need more engineers. Can you speak any foreign languages?"
Freshman 1: "LOL no I'm a mechanical engineering major. Not a lame communication major. Everyone should just learn English if they want to communicate with us."
Student 2: I'm sure you'll get far with that attitude.
Freshman 1: Woah bro, calm down. We got off on the wrong foot. Come to my party tonight and i'll make it up to you. It's an Engineering major only party, but i'll make an exception for you.
Student 2: No thanks, I hate sausage fests.
