Both have poor outcomes for jobs?

If you want to do medical device/implant design be a Mech E. I got my undergrad in Biomedical engineering. Unless this is some top in the world program you'll be better suited to work at Stryker/Depuys Synthes/Zimmer Biomet or something similar as a Mech E not a medical engineer. Engineering is more about the math than the biology, and good engineers can learn the relevant biology in 3 weeks or less with google and a clinical anatomy course from athletic trainers.

because you can then become employed in either data science or software engineering, which seem to be the main places where an engineering/math/science phd seems to be in high demand.

>> No.9800421

Nope I'm at a state college in a cornfield. COL is super low. They just also don't want the school to pay students more than 68k or 74k for lecturer positions. I actually read the manual today.

the contrast is funny though, because at my school they nickle and dime the fuck out of students. almost everyone is just getting paid 50%, i.e. 25k, while living in chicago which has a high cost of living. it wasn't until recently that they dropped the tuition differential for phd students in engineering, which was about 3k you had to pay on top of the 2k you have to pay in fees.

of course, that's the consequence of going to a shitty school.

>> No.9800450

Yeah we only pay ~3k in fees per year if you don't have a fellowship to cover the differential, nobody pays tuition. Some students only get $20k per year as a stipend though. A single person can have a comfortable living for $18k in the area though.

>> No.9800461

pretty much all the students at UIC are indian/chinese/iranian so the departments/professors know they can exploit them since they won't risk getting kicked out of the country. i imagine purdue has far more US citizens in the student body, so they can just say fuck it and go to a different school at any time, or even just enter the industry.

>> No.9800596

Yup pretty much true. One of my friends is going to be making 100k+ stock from a start up that's successful if a deal goes through. Plan is to hit that salary cap for 3 more years + grants + start up funds to try and break 130k by my last year of my PhD. It's pretty ridiculous but if you game the system and have a prof that likes you and has funding for it students can profit immensely, especially if they live like they're poor grad students and don't tell people about the money.

I start my Year in Industry tomorrow, at a major aerospace company. I'm a mechanical engineer student in the UK, just finished my second year. I'll be working until September 2019, and will make enough to pay off my tuition fees and have some savings too.

I interned at the company last summer, and apparently made a good enough impression that I didn't need to interview or send my CV, only an updated reference.

The thing is, I'm worried that they're going to expect more than I'm capable of. Mechanism design, MATLAB, MSC, compressible gas systems, mechanical assembly design, stress analysis, engineering management, presenting, FEA, fluid dynamics, and other things besides.

I've been trying to learn MATLAB, but I'm worried that they're going to see me as out of my depth. And I really want to make a good impression, because they sponsor outstanding students for the remainder of their degree, which I could really use. Anyone got any guidance?

TL;DR if you don't know something or aren't clear on something, just ask, even if you think it makes you look dumb. From what I've seen, the mark of an expert engineer is not knowing everything, but rather having a very good understanding of what you do know and don't know

If that's what your adviser told you then he's a race baiting retard. You didn't get rejected because you're a spic, you got rejected because top researchers don't like to waste their time on masters students. The research you would do will be rushed and may very well not even result in a publication. If you want to be a thesis masters student then you need to apply for a coursework only masters then fellate the professors whose labs you want to join for your first semester and hope your blowjobs were good enough for them consider taking you on. This is what all the curry niggers at my university do, and they got fellating people that can help them down to a science.

With that said, a thesis masters is largely a waste of time. The only places I saw that distinguished between a thesis vs non-thesis masters were national labs/academia.

Your masters stands as technical knowledge if you want to bring it to the industry. People will see you as qualified for EE positions and probably for entry level positions in CS or specialized positions for machine learning/your field of interest.

EE + CS is really good for the embedded world. Writing drivers would be an easy field to get into since they need someone who can write low abstraction policy in assembly while still being able to bust out the oscilloscope to check that everything works.

You're kidding right? Swedish women go wet over South American men like Lionel Messi.

Swedish women are tired of their feminine-looking male compatriots. My Brazilian friend easily gets laid in Sweden. He drains his bronze balls inside every blonde beauty he talks to.

I mean realistically it will pay itself back unless they're giving you unpaid intern type trash, especially since housing and food and everything is included in that price.

But I'm sure there are similar programs that offer paid internships.

do not take an unpaid internship. working a menial paid job like dish washing looks better on a resume than an unpaid internship. being unpaid says that you are not even worth the cost of training you and that your worth is exactly $0/hr

English is the global tongue. I'm so tired of retarded eurofags acting like Americans are too dumb to learn a second language fluently.

The job doesn't require a PhD but I had a referral and they can put my name on project proposals, and since this is "research" then it looks good to have people attached to the projects that hold PhDs.

I'm thinking on taking this course from the CS department called Systems Programming where they teach you how to program in C and some Linux software developtment too.

I'm a EE undergrad with no particular interest in electronics nor embedded systems, currently I'm more inclined to signal processing, machine learning and maybe power systems. Do you think taking this class and learning C will be useful down the line (for jobs)? I already know Python and Java. Thanks in advance engiefriends!

Attention engineerfags.

I have a broken shredder situation. The shredder works in the reverse direction which is what you want to do when a paper jam occurs, but it doesn't work in the forward direction. When I try to slip a paper in, nothing happens.

Wait they teach you C in your systems programming class?
In mine, we were expected to know C one prior prerequisite ago and learn about low abstraction programming like smart use of mutlithreading, experiments on process vs thread performance, and networks (we had to build a server-client program to divide and conquer on some data). It was the primer to our OS design class.

Why do computer engineering majors look at CS and say "hmmm, well I got freshman data structures, some architecture classes, and a database class, so I'm gonna be better than any given CS major?" None of these are considered hard CS classes.

In my experience, CE people concern themselves with computer organization, hardware, and making sure that people who want to develop aren't fighting their hardware. It's a great field, but it very much isn't CS + some engineering. I have yet to see computer engineering majors actually perform better at CS problems than CS majors, and honestly, that's not a really high bar.
