Going into my final semester for an Associates in Game Design. I'm mostly doing programming, though I can model, texture, and animate to some extent, at least well enough to produce demo assets as needed. The focus of the classes has been Unreal Engine 4, which is pretty darn sweet!

Physics is awesome. Math on the other hand... bah, someone tell that lazy bum to get a job.

I was originally going to major in History. Then I remembered you can't do much with that apart from teaching. I dislike children so I switched to Engineering. Then I became an uncle and got stuck with children anyway. Karma.


Mathematics is useful. i can't imagine doing physics without mathematics.

Granted, the pedagogy of most mathematics courses leaves a lot to be desired. Calculus is hit extremely hard, because it's trying too hard to be rigorous and practical that it essentially fails at being either (e.g., do we REALLY need to know the Mean Value Theorem?).

Math is certainly useful, but like you said, the upper levels of Calc in particular were just.. ugh.

Physics on the other hand, even when you go into Dr. Who's "wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff", still feels useful. Like the solutions have actual purpose beyond drilling technique into your skull by rote. Comparing math and physics.. it's like having to eat your vegetables before you get any dessert.

But I suppose I should shut up before I drag the topic horribly off-course by encouraging everyone to discuss the awesomeness of physics. Because everyone here is cool and loves physics, right?

I had a dual major - Electric Power Generation and Heavy Construction Equipment Technology: Technician Emphasis.

With those two degrees under my belt, I could literally find a job anywhere in the world.

Computer Science, I want to take a minor but I'm not sure in what yet. Maybe mathematics or statistics.
