I go to a lot of coordination meetings where they're present (because they represent the investors and clients) and they meddle in things they have no clue about but will persistently try to force their (often clueless) opinions to be the lasting decision. I'm sure they're great surgeons but you really shouldn't act like you have any kind of authority when discussing optic network infrastructure or acting like you know how much degrees of compensation should a system have. I literally heard two doctors telling each other after a meeting "if peasants can do this when should be able to learn it in a few weeks". Which would be fine and dandy if it were true but they just induce facepalming whenever they're talking during meetings.

Nothing stops you from looking up proofs yourself silly nigger.

The math involved in deriving them is far too advanced for a semester course. So they just explain the high level idea, maybe include some simpler proofs / proof sketches to present some intuition, and move on from there. OP is a faggot who hasn't yet realized there's a reason every course label in his curriculum starts with the words "Intro to..."

They teach you how and why. You have to know why it works if you're planning to implement it.

Dunno, I distinctly remember professors showing the proof for every major formula and doing it during lecture, especially in later, more theoretical, classes. The only difference being it's mainly not required to know the proof by heart but they always recommend to arrive by it yourself at home to better understand what you're doing.

Dunno, I distinctly remember professors showing the proof for every major formula and doing it during lecture, especially in later, more theoretical, classes.
In my classes they went over the absolute most important derivations, but left a lot to look up on our own. Too many of them would just be a waste of lecture time; not only because of length, but because of complexity. Truly comprehension involves reading, rereading, thinking deeply, and then thinking some more. Running through them in a lecture would be in one ear, out the other for >90% of students.

I was offered an internship at NASA GRC recently and have been having a hard time deciding on if I am going to take it or not. The reality is I have 12 unfilled NASA applications into projects I'd rather work on at locations I'd rather live at. The position isn't totally irrelevant to my interests, it's just not directly aligned with my career goals (think software vs aerospace engineering), and the other positions I applied to put me in a much better position for getting into the masters labs I want to work in. I have not heard anything from any of them yet and I believe it's still around the time the centers are making first contact with candidates (submitted all within the past month). This will be my last internship before I apply for graduate schools and I'm lacking in relevant, directly aerospace engineering experience.

This position I was offered wasn't something I applied to either, nor something I would have spent one of my 15 applications on. I was just sent an email via OSSI asking if I wanted to do it. The experience it provides related to my career goals is minor, but not insignificant.

I think I'm fairly qualified, with a few big name internships under my belt, my gut is telling me this could be one of my biggest regrets if I got an offer for another position, but I would also have massive regret if I got nothing NASA related in the end and didn't get any of the positions.

Any advice for what I should do? I don't have very long to accept or decline.

Why? Calculus has more applications than analysis and if you teach analysis then people who many not consider a future in math are then forced to go through semesters of shit that really isn't applicable to them. A lot of undergrads go into university not knowing what they want to do. Having them learn a class that's a lot more niche than calculus doesn't really make sense from an efficiency stand point.

To make a long story short I went to community college with the goal of transferring as a mechanical engineer completed all the prereqs but because of some stupid reasons and because I was gonna be at cc for 1 more year I switched to CS instead.

Now I'm transferring as a CS major. I guess now I'm having regrets. My fears with ME where that it would be difficult to find work after. Another fear initially is that it would be much more difficult then CS hence me switching to the easier major. Problem being I'm not good at programming and the uni I'm going to seems to be very work intensive for programming projects.

Honestly, I think I'm just feeling that the grass is greener on the other side. But when I was on the ME route that's how I felt towards CS. Is it difficult to find work with ME or will CS always be easier for finding work with better pay? Are engineering jobs flooded right now? Doesn't help I did all the prereqs so I feel I did all that work for nothing...

The difference where I live could be 10k or more. So its not like its a small difference and money is a huge factor in my career choice.

I find CS interesting. I just feel CS is something I could self teach. But then I start to think that if I want to do something like AI or machine learning self teaching might not be able to cut it. It feels like self teaching only applies to simple programming and web dev stuff. The more complicated things like machine learning, networks, operating systems, architecture, compilers etc. feel like things most people who are self taught don't know. Not to say its impossible to learn, but its very less likely and that will always put me in a disadvantage against someone that had a formal CS education.

I guess a better question is can an ME degree get me here or will it instead simply put me in traditional engineering jobs with a huge disadvantage and learning curve on those better paying CS jobs? I do like ME but its just not my only interest.

so EEs have the option to specialize where i'm getting my degree

specializations include: RF, power systems, among others. im thinking about choosing RF but someone i know says RF is the hardest one. but someone else i know says RF specialization is in demand.

anything interesting?
Almost posted my website then chickened out. I think my research is very interesting, but I want fix up all the documentation before I start shilling my software.

Well then "winner", I do hope your stupid brain can understand that you don't beling here if all you're willing to talk about is this "winning", work and school.

Do note that you have neither claimed to talk math or science in this thread. So again, why are you on Veeky Forums ?

Functional analysis up to Sobolyev is undergrad? Where?

No, a mathematician with a hobby. Nearly all CS courses are trivial when you know math. (Stuff like comp networks with their "memorise thes protocols" bullshit isn't but theyre a minority.)

LMAO the pissed off math sperg is STILL chimping out because his shitty little "math" degree has a professional ceiling that goes no higher than adding up the daily receipts at the local gay dive bar.

holy shit, what a totally obsessed, jealous moron.

Where?
Engineering electives actually. Basic applied functional analysis is taught in control engineering courses, many good engineering programmes allow for electives in proper functional analysis for future control theory researchers.

How many electives are you allowed? If you have many then maybe just try out an RF class and see if you like it. And have you taken the basic EE Emag couse yet? That is usually the intro course into RF at my uni and others Ive seen. RF is definitely a good specialization for jobs as so many things in the world use some sort of wireless communication, and those systems rely on RF typically. Until RF communications dies out you should have some type of job

I design manifolds, tanks, control systems. Then I supervise the installation of said manifolds, tanks, and control systems. Then I make those manifolds, tanks, and control systems work. Then I train the electricians.
