  • Any Other Students Here?

    I always find it interesting to gauge the type of people who use a particular forum. I was just looking through the What do Coffee Snobs do for a crust thread and was interested to see the wide range of people from different professions posting here! It really does make for a great community. Anyway this led me to ask, are there many other students using the CS forum? If so, where and what are you studying?

    I am currently in my fourth year of degrees in chemical engineering and finance at the University of Western Australia. With exams fast approaching, i have probably been doing less study than i should be, but my new found desire to make the perfect espresso is so time consuming :P Between the hours of reading and time spent experimenting, there isnt much residual to study chemical thermodynamics or corporate income tax :-/

            Are we talking under 25 here and full time students? coz I dont remember being able to afford $1500 on a coffee machine between the age of 17 and 21 whilst I was doing my batchelor degree in Civil Aviation full time.

              Im doing a combined degree, 6 years all up and will graduate with two degrees. Yea, they might seem like pretty different fields, but the business aspect of my studies will hopefully act as a step to working in more of an engineering management role. That, and i am genuinely interested in economics and finance, even if it does not directly help me career-wise.

                21, almost 22 here. I can afford shiny toys like my coffee machine and my motorbike because I dont spend all my money on alcohol + taxis every weekend

                  Am 49 and in the first year of a Bachelor of Social Sciences (Counselling) degree, doing it part time in conjunction with working nights. Coffee and cans of V helpful.

                  Knowing the workload on a part time basis, I have nothing but admiration for those who study full time.

                    That always helps Certainly when i just turned 18 this described my weekends pretty well, but these days there are so many things Id rather do than go to a club where we can barely talk and i only find it fun after a few (or 4 or 5) tequila shots :P Especially with uni becoming pretty full-on in the last few semesters, i really cant afford to go out on Saturday and then spend half of Sunday recovering. But as you say, it really does help the bank account

                    Wow that is a long time since graduating from high school to jump back into study! Good on you though, i think its great that people can engage in higher education as a mature age student. Is this to further your current career path, or are you changing direction altogether?

                          Did ease back in about 5 1/2 years back via a basic 6 month Cert III through Tafe, then followed that with a Diploma in Alcohol & Drugs in conjunction with a Cert IV in Mental Health, also at TAFE. That course of study plus involvement in other areas helped me see that I had abilities in the counselling field. That sent me towards my current work (at a homeless mens hostel - it pays the bills). The degree is not necessarily specific to my current employment, but Ive certainly had opportunity here to practice the disciplines and skills which will be required when I end up working in whatever field.

                          Specifically where I am not quite sure, there are a number of areas which are very personal to me and I am very passionate about working in. I will do the study and where I end up will happen as a matter of course.
