Other questions about "Engineering"

Q: I'm studying engineering in ABC university.

This sentence is collect?

What's is the difference of " in Uni/ at Uni"
A: I think "in university" sounds better if you don't include the name of the school because you're talking about a general place: university.

If you're talking about a specific university, such as Arizona University, I would use "at:" "at Arizona University."

So, for your original sentence, because ABC would be the name of the university, "in" sounds slightly unnatural here. I would say:

"I'm studying engineering at ABC University."
Q: So I want to study mechanical engineering in US,does someone know a good university?
A: I'm not sure how your grades are, but look at colleges like University of Michigan and Indiana university for a start.
Q: I study engineering at the university.
My course is engineering. (I don't know if course means the same as here in Brazil) does this sound natural?
A: using course works just fine. you could also use degree, in US they might also say it is their Major.
take out the "the" in your first sentence though, it's not needed :) if you wanted to add more detail you could replace it with the name of your university; "I study engineering at (name) University."
Q: I have majored in engineering for three years, and already obtained a bachelor's degree. does this sound natural?
A: Ok, then you must use the past tense:

I majored in engineering for 3 years, and obtained a bachelor's degree at the end.


I obtained a bachelor's degree in 2015 after I majored in engineering for 3 years.

When you say 'I have majored for 3 years', it suggests you are still doing it now. If you majored for 3 years in the past, you must use the past tense.

A rule of thumb is:

If you speak about something done, over a specified time period, which you no longer do then you use past tense.

I went to university for 3 years. (I attended for a specific time but no longer do so).

If you speak about something that you started a specified time ago, and you still do it, then you use the present prefect continuous.

I have been going to university for the past 3 years. (I started 3 years ago and still go).

If you did something in the past, or have finished something recently, and it had no specified time then you would use present perfect.

I have been to university. (In the past, but no longer do so - the time is not specified i.e. when I attended or how long for I attended for).

Hope that helps!
Q: Having civil engineering as my major in college, what I learnt at school were mostly about physics. does this sound natural?
A: @audrey617: Try: I studied physics at university while obtaining my degree in civil engineering.
You may want to add other things you studied as well as what you specifically did well with. 'I also excelled in Calculus, computer programming, and Auto CAD.
