any of you guys science nerds? still at uni or finished your degree? I'm doing a bachelor of science, but not really sure which direction to take or where I could end up after it. so which area are you guys in?

i realised there was a heap of you after reading the science threads. also a heap of you help out people with physics questions and the like in help and advice. whether or not they venture over here i'm not sure...

    Doing some shit called Material, Energy and Nano Technology.

    It's a university degree, but i's so obvious they want it be engineering.

    This semester is only maths (shit easy at that), computer models and some lab work. Easy peasy.

    lasers don't fire particle streams of molten metal at twice the speed of sound

    lasers aren't louder than jet engines

    I'm currently deffered from a Bachelor of Biotech. Uhh it's cool, you get to do a lot of smelly organic chemistry and you also get to do a lot of smelly biology. My degree is in Nanotechnology in Biotech so there is some physics but it is easy. Unfortinuatly this is not smelly.

    i like birds because their diversity makes them very good animals for literature. you can give almost any bird meaning, and there's a bird for any literary occasion

    looming apocalypse? crow. domestic dispute? robin. visiting an ailing relative in hospital on an autumn night? maybe an evening grosbeak, or some kind of waxwing

    makes sense

    I have my degree in Analytical Chemistry. I work in the minerals and material science areas for a huge global minerals business that is slowly crushing my will to live.

    But for 6 years I worked on a product for them in the glass industry, so I got to melt shit all day and do dangerous things with furnaces. Now I'm running mostly elemental testing for trace metals that could kill people if we sold it.
