Ok, this is what got me through engineering undergrad:

  • A zipper binder. Carry all your notebooks and writing utensils and a calculator.

  • Similar to your notebook choice: Wirebound + 3-hole notebook so it goes in your zipper binder. One for each note-taking class.

  • Binder 3-hole punch, if when you get handouts in class that you want to put in your notebooks chronologically, but hasn't been punched.

  • Hole protectors. You'll need them. Trust me.

  • 0.3mm lead is a lot easier to come by than 0.2mm. Get a good 0.3mm drafting pencil instead. Get a good eraser too - don't get used to using the shitting pencil-tip erasers. A bonus to using non-standard lead pencils - people are much less likely to bum lead off you.

  • Scientific calculator. You really don't need a graphing calculator, in my experience. Anything beyond a Scientific calculator you can do it on Mathematica or MatLab or Maple or whatever your school provides on their computer labs. Look through this list and choose one, because you'll eventually use that on your FE/PE exams, and it's better to walk into those exams with 4 years of experience on your calculator already.

  • Eventually you'll be printing out your résumé, and shitty computer paper isn't going to do it. Don't shell out for stupid "résumé paper", I have a whole rant about that and the paper industry's creation of fictitious product demands, but that's another story. Make your résumé professional, concise, and elegant (good résumé-writing is worth another lengthy discussion), and then print it out on some cardstock - a bit firmer, a bit more professional than crappy computer paper.

    All of this will probably fit in your cool zipper binder.

    This was kinda fun, actually.

I sure do love my pens and my engineering paper! I am not a drafting student, though I did take an engineering graphics course in college, which covered drafting. The ability to draw nice schematics has come in very handy in life.

Those Rotorings look nice! Too bad about the price and the plastic innards. I really like my Pentel Graphgear 500 0.3mm, it's plastic with a metal tip, and the 0.4mm extension to the metal tip strengthens the lead and allows you to see exactly where you're drawing. My only complaint is the sorry excuse for an eraser it has hidden under the metal clicker.

I have this one which I use for drafting. It works but i find the lead for be scratchy. It's definitely thin. Look at pens as well. Pigma microns or Copic Multiliners are amazing

Sophomore year of college, I spent about $50 on Amazon, guaranteeing I'd never have to buy supplies ever again (and some will probably be inherited by my grandchildren). I bought:

It's a pencil, likely a Pentel Graphgear 500. Great pencils.
