They all have their merits, good grad programs, and generally solve each others' problems.

I was on the subway a few weeks ago. During my ride, I overheard a young man from Long Island ask two other young men which stop to get off of to get to some place that I don't recall. Anyway, they answered his question, "8th street, NYU".
The conversation turned into what their college majors were. one of the young men answered "Mechanical Engineering".
"Oh wow, so you're like a genius then?"
I was irate. I immediately stood up, walked over to their group, and yelled "ENGINEERS ARE FUCKING STUPID". I was so angry I believe I would have stabbed one of them in the eye with my compass, but then the train pulled into my stop, so I was able to collect myself and flee the scene.

Silence subhumans. CS is always harder than engineering. You niggers are wat worse than CSlets. The top is pure mathematics. after that, one needs to slam their heads into the wall so they can perhaps tolerate Physics. You have to lose further intelligence in order to tolerate CS. By the time you have reached a mentally retarded level of intelligence (~120 IQ) you are finally at engineering. The realm of subhumans that only exist to fuck some succubus that would make more engineers.

The CS faggots that are only in it for the job are like you, but the difference is that they still have to learn far more advanced math than you will ever dream of.

CS is basically math++, i.e. a CS graduate is considered elite, capable of mastering in 1 year what math graduates do in 2 years. Deal with it!

World's elite universities will tell you right away that as their CS student you are considered the best group they have and that math students go slower than you are, and increase your load to crazy levels As a CS student, you are expected to master (continuous) calculus, discrete calculus (discrete math proofs, hypercubes for parallel algorithms), optimization (machine/deep learning, compilers), category theory (functional programming), logic (up to automated proofs, i.e. including set theory), differential equations, topology (computational geometry, distributed algorithms), probability and statistics (reinforcement learning, queueing), number theory (cryptology), graph theory (almost everywhere)... There is no functional analysis needed yet, but it's heavily used for PhD degrees anyway. You need to know all this down to the level of proving theorems if you want to achieve anything in CS.


While pure math & physics progress slowed down, the advances in CS are fast and accelerating. CS is the major of future. Math jobs are shrinking; CS jobs will grow even more than today. The AI revolution is here, from Google search to Uber pool to auto correct to recommendation engines, mathematicians are being left in the dust by algorithms from the 90's and just sheer brute force.
