So today I learned that americucks weren't learning about pic related until their master because it was "too hard to understand". Is it why engineering is seen as a fedora-tier education in the US?
Is any others cultural difference is science teachings? I find it pretty interresting 2bh. Sorry for the memes btw
What is Ecole Normale Superieure?
Engineering isn't a joke where I live, if you think so you'd better compare the number of Fields medals France got with the score of the rest of the world.
Though I think that US students learn more about computer science and industrial science so that could be where the memes come from
But if you had clicked on the link, you'd know ecile normale supérieure isn't a university, neither are french engeneering schools. There are no other requirements to go to unversity in France than getting over high school so the level is pretty low there. Btw we learn about pic begining of first year
>Getting education is worthless unless you get a shitload of money
I'm pretty sure I could earn more money that yu'd ever earn by selling drugs and weapons, but I choose not too because I'm a decent human bean
Oh and also, 13 380 € per yer per student is a pretty good gov founding, and it somehow grants better education than spending 4 hours a day in an 1500 students amphitheater while paying 50 000$ per year
>Look at how great of a human bean i am
My fluid mechanics (chemical engineering) prof from france pretty much did a math/physics degree before doing engineering. That's how engineering should be taught to be quite honest, you lose out on so much..
proving stirling's convergence was the subject of the thesis of a former student of my analysis professor. he considered it a good thesis and not trivial. Never looked at it myself tho
on the other hand understanding what the symbols mean is pretty easy
We proved Stirling's Formula during our Analysis 1 class (first semester undergrad).
To be fair, ENS is not an engineering school it's a professor school, although most graduates end up in research.
And France has better universities than America, your point ?
>Plus, all those efforts put in 'prepa' are worthless considering the salaries.
Not really, compared to what you'd get by not going to prepa, it's completely worth it. Then again, this is an opinion.
If prepa is so hard, it's really because high school is so shit, after 2 years of prepa I really feel that I wasted 3 years of my life in high school.
