What degree have/are/will you studied/studying/study.

Postby electoralfraud » Fri Apr 13, 2007 11:51 pm UTC

So this has probably been done before, but its not on the first 3/4 pages of search and its new to me.

As it says on the tin; what degree are you studying/planning to study/have studied. And which University/College?

(Majors as applicable; areas of interest/options/areas of research/minors also as applicable, etc..)

Myself: Philosophy at Birkbeck college UOL (Politics/17th century German/Mind)

First year (eep, nearly second) Mathematics student at Leeds.

No, not the met. I go to University. We actually have a school of maths.

Hoping to study math at University of Waterloo the year after next year. If not, falling back on Windsor. I'm sure Windsor'll take me, and the amount of money they give out in scholarships is staggering; they've offered my friend $28,000 over 4 years to study there. 'S too bad he's planning on going to Waterloo too.

MSc in Condensed Matter Physics by thesis (mostly simulation work).

Hopefully will be doing a PhD in DPhil somewhere later this year in astronomy simulation stuff.

BEng(Computer Systems Engineering) + BSci(Computer Science).
[which is basically a big emphasis on electrical/comptuer engineering with a light sprinkling of computer science]
in my 3rd of 5 years on a CWA of around 90%.

Its great, I love it, interesting, will pay well once i graduate.....the only let down is the lack of female presence in my units. I share classes with exactly.......0 females :roll:

Glad I'm not the only one! I'm in 2nd year of Computer Science, and the female count has dropped down to zero as well.

It's a very interesting course, but they put too much emphasis on getting assignments done (which are only worth about 20%), so I have no time to actually study the coursework. :/

When I took computer science in 11th grade, I was the only girl...

Myself, I will be starting college this fall, most likely at Eastern Michigan University, where I will be majoring in Asian Studies-Japan.

Japan has been the only thing to ever hold my interest more than a few months, so I figure it's a safe bet, lol.

Computer science would be something awesome to go to school for, but I'm afraid that I have no mathmatical aptitude, and i understand that's something of a prerequisite.

It's my first year at University of Michigan studying general biology. I'm actually just taking general education shit right now because it's my first semester at college, even though I tested out of everything I could have. I was going to minor in chemistry, but I settled for psychology (even though I will never use this in the future) for various reasons.

I was the only female in computer repair last year. (Oh god, that class brings back bad memories.) There were a few in computer science, but not many. I'd place money on the fact that there were none in computer science 2, not so much because of the subject, but because the teacher was a misogynist.

BS in Computer Science, with minors in Mathematics and Electrical Engineering.

I started out as a Computer Engineer, but RIT's CE program is basically equivalent to Electrical Engineering with a Computer Science minor. I like working in software better, so I went the other way around.

Going to do a Physics major, probably with a with a minor in areonautical engineering/propulsion systems... Will be starting next year at city college to get all of my credits up to par (I have been out of school for nearly 10 years now), with a transfer into one of the UC's as soon as possible. Looking at UCLA, Irvine, or possibly San Diego for my B.S.; I may or may not go home to Manchester to do my masters (too soon to decide), and I would really like to go to CalTech at some point during my graduate studies.

Can't wait to get started at uni - I have been studying my arse off (brushing up on all of the maths I'd not used for a decade) in preparation for placement exams. :P


I'm really interested in Nuclear Physics as well, but I reckon I will get the B.S. under my belt first, and see where I feel like heading from there. 8)

I've got two exams left this month, then I'll be done my undergrad crim degree, and then I'm getting the fuck out!

If four years of criminology taught me anything, it's that institutions are designed to break an individual's mind and spirit--be they penal, bureaucratic, or educational institutions.

The only reason I stuck through it was for my $30K ticket. It's a ticket, because without it, you ain't goin' nowhere.

I have a BA in English Literature (mostly modern and postmodern stuff) with an Ancient History minor.

Two years left on my LLB (w/hons) after which i want to do either a BSc in Physics or MBBS (Medicine and Surgery).

Doubt the government will keep loaning me money for those last two, though. :(

BEng(Chemi)\BSc + DML(Diploma modern languages) in French at Melbourne University Australia
Basically 6 years at uni, Im still in first year. Not sure what to focus on in chem eng, I can focus on biomolecular which means i can work at carlton brewery and get cheap/free beer or i can work at shell and get 25% off petrol.
Not sure which science to focus on either, currently got Chemistry and maths and i have to get physics in ther as well. thing is im interested in all of them.

one thing i hate about people who study physics is you all know so damn much about everything :P I wish i knew as much about everything as physics students!

I know alot about electricity and electronics and control systems, but thats because thats what i've been studying since day 1. So i'd like to think i could out-intellect you(the royal you, talking about physics students as a whole here) on that front, but then, on the topic of everything, you guys whoop my pants off! (then again, being pantless isn't that bad, there is a certain air of freedom that comes with loosing ones pants....)

And the killer is that you damn physicists know enough about electricity to come off as fairly knowledgeable on the subject, and then you know about quantum mechanics, and relativity, chemistry, mechanics and every other bloody topic under the sun :P (admittedly i know a bit about these subjects just out of personal interest)

The only consolation i have is that upon graduation, (especially if you get a job in the mining sector [==big $$$ in perth]) good engineers will earn more than you straight physics students :P so blah.

Still, i am envious.

Law with Spanish llB(wales) at aberystwyth, though I'm currently on an erasmus year in spain. Ideally i'd like to go on to do a physics or engineering degree before my BVC so that I can get into intellectual property, but the last time I did any maths or sciences was GCSE, so it's tricky. My only hope is that they think I'm a mature student next year.

Physics students are like that, yea...

Well, I've studied Psychology, Chemical Engineering, and now I'm in my second year of law school, which I kind of really like, so I think I'll be sticking with it, to be honest.

Can't wait to get my masters... Of course, even then I won't be a lawyer, I still need 2 years of internship before I can do that. Stupid rules.

First year BM(GI)/BS(CS&SE)

or, Bachelor of multimedia (Games and Interactivity)/Bachelor of Science (Computer Science and software engineering)

Basically: Games.

And in the first years there are about... maybe 20-25% girls? which isnt that low really...

And yeah, it is a pretty awesome course for anyone who wants to make computer games.
