lol I love insecure students trying to put their programs in to tiers. Guess what? If you are doing really well u picked a god tier. If you are doing shitty then the program is not for you and u picked a shit tier. I took music as a major and now I make 120,000 per year. I admit im a rare case but I mean come on let's be real it's because I was good at it that I succeeded.

It's basically mech for aircraft and spacecraft, so you need more fluid dynamics and propulsion, but mech learns that to an extent too.

>>6580871

People who select a major because it's easy are ostensibly in college for reasons they themselves do not quite know, presumably having to do with fun and friends.

On the other hand, people who are going to college to get money have already assigned a position of primacy to material wealth, which I would say without hesitation is totally delusional.

"Assigned a position of primacy"? Are you kidding me with this shit?

What, do you think that the decision of whether to go to college, or what to take there, is the central decision of your life? Mostly it's just how you make connections and get qualified for a job. OF COURSE you should be thinking about what it costs and how much more you'll make with it.

If you're one of the guys who claims that college is supposed to teach you to think, I can tell you that's fucking ridiculous. If you go to college unable to think, you're going to come out unable to think.

Material wealth is fucking important. It's how you can afford to support a family in comfort, and give your kids opportunities. Most people have no option but to spend most of their adult lives in pursuit of material wealth. For the majority, college is a necessary means of avoiding poverty.

Unless you're a trust fund kid or a genius, your choice of post-secondary education should be a compromise between the income potential and job security offered by an option, its costs, and its correspondence with your talents and your interests.

It's an investment. It should be an intelligent investment, with a realistic prospect of positive returns.

astronomy is just computer science at this point.

But you said it yourself:
>the interdisciplinarity of CS often boils down to "I need these results, here's a resource"

I'm sure you are smart enough to understand that in order to obtain said resource, know what results to expect, how to evaluate said results and connect them to different ones you need to have an understanding of what the fuck you are doing. Which in case of a physicist could be understanding the behavior of particles that he is studying or in case of a doctor the physical and biochemical profiles of the patient whose blood is being tested. Which is the shit you learn when getting the according degree.
Your argument is figuratively marie schrader saying she could take a much better x-ray than the doctors.

>>
>>6582071

that's what they all say

not as in "that's what they all say"

but literally, by the words: that's what they all say.

science and applied science just boil down to two things:

1) information
2) application of information on information

It's reasonable: people are afraid of becoming obsolete, hence: "you can't do what I do".

but the reality is that you are integrating more and more CS into your field. a lot of nieches can't work without it anymore.
>>
>>6582077
>>6582091

CS is obviously a part of all scientific fields nowadays since you need to compute your fucking results. That makes it as little a replacement for other scientic work as a navigation system is a replacement for a truck driver (in fact less, because this is somewhat feasible)
>>
>>6582100
hurr

obviously everybody integrates more and more CS into their fields. Why the fuck not, it's the 21st century. Your point? When the scientific world started integrating optical devices into their fields, did that make opticians into physicists? Your argument makes no sense whatsoever. Maths are part of science. "a lot of nieches can't work without it anymore."
Does that mean a mathematician knows about chemistry the way a chemist does? obviously not, they are fucking different things.

>science and applied science just boil down to two things:

>1) information
>2) application of information on information


that's a completely meaningless and insubstancial sentence that could be twisted and applied to anything.

art just boils down to
1) ideas
2) applying color to realize ideas

I'm now an artist

computer science just boils down to

1) data
2) handling of data

I'm now a computer scientist
>>
>>6582091
>marie schrader saying she could take a much better x-ray than the doctors.

interesting analogy because the guidelines that tell doctors how to take x-rays and what to do with these x-rays come from a CS standard.

but you're right. specialists are able to reinterpret interpreted results much quicker than someone who's not a specialist.

>>6582118
>the guidelines that tell doctors how to take x-rays and what to do with these x-rays come from a CS standard.

the guidelines for the specific machinery come from a CS standard, because it's fucking CS.
They originate from Röntgen, were explored and established by physicists and physicians alike and are now defined by CS standards because they are performed by computers.

A doctor's main occupation has never been to operate the internal workings of computers or machinery, just as it is not his job to sharpen his surgical paraphernalia. He is not trained to do so just as a computer scientist is not trained to perform a surgery.
All scientific fields overlap, have always overlapped and will continue to do so. That does not make one of them replaceable.

just what is a doctor trained to do?

make diagnoses, provide treatment.

machinery is encroaching upon the doctor, and it's just a matter of time until many of them will be replaced.

many doctors do not believe that, and you apparently don't either, but I think, based on what I have seen, it's just a matter of time, and time will surely tell.
>>

>>
>>6582156
It's the same argument people have been making since the industrial revolution.
>10 years from now we'll all be replaced by robots

every work field where machinery can be used, machinery is used and as machinery becomes more refined, more ways to use it are found.

Saying that machinery will "replace" humans in a workfield as complex as medicine is complete nonsense, we are still decades away from even self-driving cars. Not even assembly line workers (the #1 example for machines replacing humans for almost 200 years) have been replaced completely so far.
You could postulate the same thing about every other profession, including computer science itself and be just as right/wrong.

Compressing a whole field into two categories in an attempt of simplification is bound to be an imprecise and worthless statement.


it is obvious that every discipline requires specialized knowledge, which is why you either study one or the other. Or both of course, not holding you back. Generalizing about any of them, presuming replaceability by any other is just as silly as putting them in arbitrary tier lists and is just another way of internet penis measuring.

>>
>>6582053
>physics is mostly just computer science at this point.
Not really. Sure, some physicists use computers (far fewer than you make out), but they need a very thorough understanding of the physics before programming anything. Your first example conversation would never happen; you could not develop a decent simulation of particle interactions without a very deep understanding of the physics involved. You cannot just pick up a textbook and paper without and prior knowledge and suddenly understand the physics therein.
>>
>>6582156
by the way, just to inform you, the computer equipment used in many labs and hospitals is garbage. Like late 90s-2005 technology. You wouldn't believe it sometimes.
Much less CS than there should be.
