>mfw non engineers are literally the plebs of STEM.
Why even do STEM when you're not part of the patricianeer ruling class?
>never get an understanding of condensed matter physics, CPU design, superconductors, lasers, tunneling microscopes, crystallography, lithography, ultra-capacitors, thermoplastic elastomers and electroactive polymers
kek, with the obvious exception of SS specific research engineers cover those in far, far more depth.
>CPU design, superconductors
EEs and CompEs understand that far better.
>, lasers, tunneling microscopes,
I'll give you that.
Engies study material science from 1st year way ahead of any other discipline. Only analytical chemists and very specialized physicists would know more about the field than the average engineer.
Who the fuck do you think developed modern ICs?
>thermoplastic elastomers and electroactive polymers
ChemEs understand far more and developed this entire field including the modern thermo and stat. mech. models.
He does baby background physics you scrub. He doesn't understand how to build modern CPUs from logic circuits with modern IC technology.
He doesn't even understand reaction-diffusion PDE models unless he took transfer process classes.
