What degree do u have or are studying? How do people react when you tell them
>>
Should have a Biomedical Science degree in 6 months or so. People usually sound impressed like they think it's particularly hard or something, but I think that's because there's so many arts/humanities students here, plus it has a lo of syllables.
>>
Medicine.
People literally think I'm superhuman(which I also am).
>>
>>7773788
I'm in geology, but trying to transfer into geophysics. The trick is to have as many syllables as possible. I like to say "geological sciences" (which is what it will actually say on my degree).

Kind of pissed cause my uni just stopped offering my degree in Latin (as in, the writing on the piece of paper). Now its in boring old english.

Chemical Engineering.
90% of people including university educated people have no idea what it is and so change the topic to avoid embarrassment.

I get a lot of contempt from physicists here because there's an interdepartmental coldwar going on because of shit that went down in one of our shared research institution groups (leaving them without major funding and us without the more expensive equipment).

I love academia so fucking much.

If I tell another STEM person they generally arent shocked and simply comment, "yeah, a lot of homework"

If I tell anyone else they act really surprised. Also sometimes a look of being intimidated. Don't know why I get this reaction, its a degree not threat. I guess some people just really fear math. No clue why.

I've heard people talk of me, that axioms and Godel make math almost useless as a field of study. That only fields that advance math and give it real world applications are useful.

Consequentially, I shitpost of 4chin, that math is master race.

Really, I'm insecure inside regarding my choice of math

In a word? Ego.

Imagine /sci/ IRL.

Pretty much started when on of the Physics grad-students refused to give one of our undergrad researchers access to a (government agency owned) laser in his lab and referred him to a less powerful one that wasn't powerful enough for what he needed. On the face of it that was reasonable because if the undergrad fucked something up the postgrad's graduation gets delayed. The physics undergrads here also don't really do large research projects for credit so it's alien for them to trust undergrads with anything. However, rumours started spreading, (ridiculous to /sci/-tier major politics level, only more passive aggressive and less banter). People from our department then started refusing physic students access to our labs without being billed. Physics grad-students reciprocated. The director of the institute (officially under our department) got pissed at his direct students being refused access to equipment which is all technically under his authority. Some of the Physics chairs under him semi-rebelled against him. Shit escalated more, director started pulling funding (almost all funding comes from him or others in our department). Even intra-departemental research groups started refusing collaboration and access to each other. All 8 labs under the institute are a clusterfuck at the moment. Some postgrads are in limbo and can't graduate. Even worse some would-be physics postgrads who lost their funding had to find other work. There's even talking about the Physics department losing some of their faculty positions which can't be properly funded anymore.


Those of us in theory/modelling on both sides of the fence are enjoying the chaos and shitposting about it on /sci/.

straight from google translate

"This is the program for you who are passionate about mathematics. Here you can read mathematics than in other engineering program and you get a specialist mathematician in the field of technology. You develop your problem-solving skills and your ability to work mathematically with many different kinds of problems, even those not originally formulated in mathematical terms.

EDUCATION
Mathematics is the science and technology languages and has always been a core subject for an engineer. The rapid computer development makes mathematics today has become more important, for example, to effectively analyze information and make simulations. Mathematics permeates everyday life, often without thinking about it, with everything from Google and weather forecasts to the pricing of options on the stock exchange. Today there are many new areas such as bioinformatics, information technology, medicine and economics, where necessary, advanced mathematics, which is often not yet fully developed.

Specializations
After a three-year basic block choose between different specializations. Its cover almost all types of engineering where analysis and simulations are important. Specializations are held together by large pieces of communal mathematics. This helps to create good overview of the wide field, which is also a key specialist skills for a technical mathematician.

FUTURE
After graduation, you are in demand on the labor market and can get interesting jobs across a wide range of employers and industries. Many will work in teams where they help with mathematical expertise from specialists in other fields. For this, you are well prepared through education width and training in communication and modeling that you received."

I know a few people in my cohort got such internships. They were known to be the top of the class, so yeah, it's true, it pays well in some cases.

Upon graduation, however, the highest salary was $80k a year. The others got really shit salaries... I'm guessing cause they were mostly Chinese and required sponsorship. I also remember everybody had a really hard time finding jobs. So there just aren't that many jobs anymore.

I went back to working a regular software dev job working on enterprise web apps.

In that specific incident the student's adviser had resigned from his faculty position and was working at a national lab so technically no one on campus was really in charge of the student.

But also you know that PHD comic "who holds all the power in the department" concluding with "Hint: Not the grad-students". Grad-students actually have a lot of power in some of our labs. It just turned out like this because we have a shitton of funding and labs per faculty. The hierarchy is also a bit skewed because we have very close ties to both national and private company labs, some of those private labs are even on our campus grounds right next to our department. It's confusing who holds the funding and who reports to who. There are some research groups where the professor officially in charge delegates everything to a PhD student and focuses on his favourite groups, basically never setting foot in the lab in question.

Last year we had a senior undergrad who had a nervous break down and she reportedly spent an entire night crying in the fetal position (apparently her lab partner just ignored her as they were very close to their deadline). Another guy was hospitalised after an HF exposure. The faculty member in charge first found out at the end of the year function he was shocked as hell because obviously there should've been a shitton of procedures followed and forms filled out.

Fuck I love this place.

I studied mathematics too but this was about 10 years ago.
Today I still love mathematics and I have finally understood why.
It simply is because the rules are clear and stuff behaves the way it should. It's predictible.
Humans on the other hands, are much more difficult to understand and predict. That makes me uncomfortable at times. I'm clueless whenever I'm involved in a conflict and some people disagree with me. Most people make decisions based on their emotions ... I make decisions based on calcultions and logic,nothing else.

Bioinformatics/computational biology and biophysics are hot.

Biochemistry and molecular/cellular biology is a solid bet.

I would recommend picking-up at least a minor, if not a double major, in a more quantitative field. At the undergraduate level, a degree in chemistry complements coursework in molecular biology well. You can't go wrong with coursework in math or CS.

People aren't that suprised. Maybe it is because I sound like this guy:

im studying for mechanical as well and some of my friends were studying for some different (easier) engineering degrees, but they ended up dropping out because they weren't good at math. I'm still thriving towards my goal and I find them being jelly for no reason and always throwing subliminals my way like I can't spot them. lel

Good Form, Pupper.

Physics. Doesn't help it's from the considered hardest faculty in our country
>Wow, you're crazy.

good form, pupper!

Mechanical Engineering. No special replies

Math, in general same shit people here have said. A lot of wows, whys, I suck at math, what can you even do with that degree, can you help me with my taxes etc etc. Weirdest one I've gotten was like... a week ago "if you weren't funny I would hate you cause I hate math"... didn't know what to say to that one

Just graduated in computer science, i dont really talk to people so yeah... But in work a couple of peoole assume just because i have a degree im really smart, when in fact in incredibly scatty.

Psychology.
>don't analyze me, bro!
I've never even taken a single Clinical course.
Hoping to start my M.A. in Applied Experimental in the Fall.
>>
Mechanical engineering, I get alot of "Oh my uncle's a mechanic, i've never been huge on cars though", or something along those lines
>>
>>7780703
i know of someone who's doing a phd in psychology, is that a real thing? i mean if youre going to waste 10 yrs of your life why not do medicine instead or some shit
>>
>>7780785
Depends on the subfield.

It's mortifying how many people believe Psychology consists SOLELY of the Clinical subfield and will outright deny the existence of others once proven wrong. Absolutely ignorant.

Love how no one has questioned the Phrenology yet. Isn't anyone just the slightest bit curious?
>>
Mechanical engineering. I get mostly
> Wow that's really cool, I bet you'll make lots of money
Or
> So yo're like good at math or something, right?

It kinda sucks though, they placed the engineering department a mile from the main campus, shit makes so many people autistic as fuck when talking to anyone outside of stem.

"Phrenology (from Greek φρήν (phrēn), meaning "mind", and λόγος (logos), meaning "knowledge") is a pseudomedicine primarily focused on measurements of the human skull, based on the concept that the brain is the organ of the mind, and that certain brain areas have localized, specific functions or modules.[1] Although both of those ideas have a basis in reality, phrenology extrapolated beyond empirical knowledge in a way that departed from science. Developed by German physician Franz Joseph Gall in 1796,[2] the discipline was very popular in the 19th century, especially from about 1810 until 1840. The principal British centre for phrenology was Edinburgh, where the Edinburgh Phrenological Society was established in 1820."

nobody gives a shit, pal
