i've been batting depression for almost 18 years. my reason is i was physically and mentally abused by my dad.
i also got depressed a week before my menses evey month.
i sometimes think it's in my genes to feel this way b/c i had been for 1/2 my life.
stress can make you depressed.
i m thinking if you get depressed for no reason at all, that could be normal & it could be hormonal.
is mechanical engineering stressful for you?
what helped me out of depression is writing in a journal, talking to someone i know would understand, doing things i like and not staying in the house all the time, i seen a therapist and i've taken prozac before. the therapy helped a little. its nice to talk to someone about your problems.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its normal feeling. Depressive symptoms are considered significant only if they impair social and mental functions.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
