I'm an engineering graduate student currently pursuing my MSME (Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering). I'm graduating this year

I've always loved science and math since elementary school so I'm loving it though the amount of works are insane sometimes, but at least it keeps me busy all the time.

xD So many engineers here. I'm also an engineering graduate student, but I specialize in Electrical Engineering. It's fun and all, but I am getting sick and tired of school. Can't wait till I leave, honestly.

It's funny. Can't say I love science or math, mainly because I can't do either just for the fun of it. But, I sure as heck LOVE building things and making those thing perform better with science and math xD.

I'm taking pastry arts. My college is pretty cool, and has a lot of open-minded people there. The only things I ever stress about are how annoying group assignments are, how early and/or long some classes are, and how some things just can't stay in my head (such as kitchen brigade stuff even though it's a piece of cake =_=).

informatics engineering here, tons of codes basically, If you like it then you will enjoy see how everyone's mind works differently while coding. Build a program from zero and the satisfation of finish it and see how well its done, best feeling ever.

A lot frustation in the process but is worth it.

That's how I feel!! Feeling a bit out of place with my historical and archaeological studies

I think it's funny that students usually introduce themselves starting with what their majors are and then slowly going down to what they meant to them, and why they chose it. Screw this, it makes the world seems so limited. As future generation, we should start from what we really want to do and have the old world adapt to our needs. Okay, let me start: I love art, the fact you have to think divergently to understand it. But as I like floating up there I also like to be able to explain and share its complexity, and for that you need to think convergently too. So I'm an art and technology major. Never heard of it right? It's a new major. The world adapted itself to me

Shouldn't feel out of place. We all ended up on CR for a reason, right?

Well, just to be fair, some people regard their majors as something that they "really want to do" lol. Plus, the major doesn't precisely dictate exactly where the student will go. I've worked on jobs with mechanical engineering graduates, but they're there developing embedded software since they wanted to apply themselves in different ways.

Out of curiosity, what exactly are you pursuing in your chosen major? Never really thought that art and technology were mutually exclusive in the first place. But, I'm wondering what a specific art and technology degree would look like practically.

I wonder how you managed to quote so many people at the same time even though I didn't quote anyone. Maa, anyway. For your answer it all depends on where you go. Some universities have schools that offer bachelor and master degree in Art and Technology, or Art and Science with courses that focus on area such as communication media, digital art and animation, or even programming and robotic.

There are little check boxes next to each post. Once you select the posts you want to quote, I just click "quote selected" and site does the rest of the work.

Interesting. I really like the mixture of courses. I think it's less helpful to have degrees that only focus a single subject, since a lot of actual work I find requires a more diverse skill set.

Ohhh thank you thank you :). I wasn't aware of this feature. And yes, you got it exactly right.

Front end web development. Moving on to Java afterwards to develop apps and such. Working at the same time. I actually really like it and hope I can find work when I'm done.
