lol what were you looking at?



Meh, I skipped 70% of my lectures and didn't do 1x% of my assignments this semester.
They were so boring, I learn way better by myself.
Some of my assignments consists of doing stupid computations by hand that could (and should) be done on a computer.

At the beginning of this semester I was excited about a course called "Signals and Systems" since it has a lot to do with audio.
but instead of getting to learn how to design filters and all that cool stuff, I get to do fourier and laplace transforms.... by hand....

 
Me: eff this schiit, I'm going home.

Do you know of a good book or program that could let me understand fully what a fourier transform into frequency response and phase response means (especially the phase response, group delay, etc. etc.) without doing the math?

Since you seem to imply that one does not need to do the math to know what's going on.

I think it's also quite common to have parents save up for their childrens' college funds as soon as they have kids, which is another 'out' for the students who can't get scholarships/loans.

 

It's as simple as that unfortunately, and because having a degree is somewhat essential in this day and age, there's no getting around paying huge sums for education.

 

Here in Australia, we get government loans which are slowly taxed back when we start earning over a certain amount, how does it work over there?

Here in Germany it's almost impossible for a normal human being to get a scholarship. Government student loans are very easy to get and paying them back is also not that hard (even if you don't manage to get through university).
Most universities etc here are "owned" by the governent or at least heavily financed through it. I guess that's the reason why people here rarely have to pay over €300 per semester.
Of course we have some private universities here in which you have to pay at least €1500 per semester. Only a viable option for really wealthy families.
A huuuge problem universities (the people who want to visit a university, to be more precise) here have is that there is just not enough room for everyone. Not enough room to accomodate all the new students (it's almost impossible to find a flat in Hamburg when a new semester starts) and not enough room in the universities itself.
"This PC pool is designed for 60 people? Let's stuff 100 in here! Sucks to be them, but we don't have a choice".
I'm still not sure if the universitys here are just to small or if there are waaaay to many people who want to attend them. I would almost say it's the latter. There have been a lot of discussions here if Germany is actually getting "too smart". We have too many lawyers, biologists, engineers etc and just not enough carpenters, electricians, kindergarteners (what a strange word) and so on.
It's kind of a big problem.


Paying these loans back through taxes is a pretty neat idea!

Any idea why you have to pay so so much money and I don't?

From what I know, European countries tend to provide a lot of educational subsidies.
My friend studying at ICL is paying in excess of 100k per semester as an international student.

You have to know the maths not actually do it.... as in the final computational step.

Here in school I'm required to do it.

 

There's no way you can know what's going on without knowing the maths.

100k what. Hotdogs? Sexual favors? Flower Petals?

 

Lol no but yeah. International student fees... Where you really realize that Universities are just as much a business as any corporation.

 

I'm sure I posted this before but I just found it again and new people sooooo.

This is a pretty interesting documentary about the Kowloon Walled City. Makes me want to visit it in person.

 

 

 

 

Also, some music (Click to show)

I don't know what to say.

Why would a government allow this?!
Making higher education only available to people with lots of money is so ******* stupid. It's so wrong on so many levels.
**** like this makes me upset....and there are not many things out there that make me upset.
Absolute daylight robbery...

I've been to this park! Now that the city is no more, you can just visit Mongkok instead. It's a lot like the walled city there.

Good music! Especially the first two and the last track.

Yup, it takes the pressure off the students, they pretty much don't even have to think about paying the debt back until they earn over $50k/year.

Hey Panda, was it the government that gives out student loans or was it one or two giant corporations that did it in the states? When did you have to start paying the debt back?

I don't know about that...I'd say the hygiene situation there isn't the highest...

There's just a lot of people in Mongkok. Apart from that, it isn't very similar to the Kowloon Walled City.

 


 

Two (one?) more to the list! (Click to show)

When I got up to the ending of the last episode, I thought to myself: "This sounds a lot like Takane Shijou from IM@S..." What a coincidence!
