Nobody understands the effects of stress more than the engineering students. With the unforgiving requirements, the mind-boggling exams and assignments, the pressure of project deadlines, and the terrorizing professors, among others, the stress level in engineering soars to great heights, to the point that it already breaks the mental health of the students. Stress is only one mental health issue. There is also the severe anxiety due to the pressure to deliver.
