My school teacher asked my to make a topic about something that I do well, so I decided to write about my knowledge in electronics engineering.
So I want to write a sentence like "what the fuck is electronics engineering"

Is it OK if I used that word? (Lots of people think that electronics is not something worthy, and they say why do I need it).
any better word to describe this situation?

  • @NathanTuggy You should change "my" to "me" in the first sentence. You should change the order in "why do I need it". You should capitalize "any" in the last sentence. Please.

    @Rathony: I said I fixed some typos; I deliberately left some more characteristic of the asker's English level. Nov 28, 2015 at 18:52

    No it is not okay. Use heck.

No, it is not Ok. Using a curse word is unprofessional and shows your writing skills are not creative. It shows you can't think of any other way to convey what you want to say, except by cursing.

You can say something like, "So, What is Electrical Engineering, anyway?" Or " So, What's the Big Deal about Electrical Engineering?" Or even "Do We Really Need Electrical Engineers?"

  • Or just replace the vulgar word, for example, "What the heck is Electrical Engineering? "

    @ColleenV - While I agree that heck is much preferable over the original, I find Kitty's suggestions here even better.
