Subject: Engineering 
Is for those who cannot do pure maths. GGET ITTTTTTTTT
You fucking engineers say you do the toughest math but YOU DONT. YOU ONLY THINK YOU ARE BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW SHIT DIDDLY ABOUT REAL MATHEMATICS. IM TALKING ABOUT ANALYSIS, ALGEBRA, NUMBER THEORY, COMBINATORICS AND NUMERICAL ANALYSIS NOT NUMERICAL METHODS!!!!!!!!
IM TALKING ABOUT HARDCORE PROOFS AND LOGIC, NOT FUCKING ALGORITHMS.
BAHAHAHAAHA
ENGINEERING STUDENTS = MATH REJECTS

(in reply to: Engineering) HARDEST engineering calculus = long computations
HARDEST math major calculus = Harvard Math 55
Is there even any comparision?

(in reply to: Engineering) Hello, im a math student, and i am proud for knowing slightly more math than someone in engineering. Now if only i could somehow apply this math to some sort of problem....

(in reply to: Engineering) I don´t think math students only know a slightly more math than engineers.
If I rank the difficulty of math in these 2 programs outta 10, it would be:
Engineering: 3
Math: 10

(in reply to: Engineering) well.. if you ranked engineering a 3, then physics would be a 2 and every other course would be a 0.
Thankfully the gap isnt that wide.. i would rate:
Math: 10
Engineering: 8
Physics: 7
Chemistry: 5
Business: 2
Arts: 1

(in reply to: Engineering) Engineers at almsot every Canadian university do not study mathematics but study "engineering mathematics". Its pretty much watered down maths.
I bet you that 95% of engineering students have no idea how to define a limit of a function or a sequence.
I bet 90% of engineering students cannot tell me what it means for a function to be continous. All they know how to do is implement algorithms that can get them to the answer and they do not have to worry about the logic behind the algorithms. Maths people come up with the algorithms while engineers blindly use them. Just look at integration, how many engineers actually know what an integral is? When you study multiple integrals, you better hope to god you have continous partial derivatives or else there might not be a bloody integral.
Of course, engineering students do not have to worry about these things because the functions they deal with are always "nice".
Even for the substitution rule for integration, you have teh same problem. I mean if you integrate in terms of x and you want to switch to U, you can do only if you can find an invertible function of the form x(u)=x
not u(x)=u

0.002% ??

(in reply to: Engineering) Another reason why engineering math is watereddown math is that the world of electronics and machanicals is one with minimal (if any) variance. They don´t have to deal with this problem. Economists and actuaries who are trained to predict what happens in the future must use probability, which brings mathematics to another level. There is no probability in the world of engineering.

(in reply to: Engineering) The math in terms of difficulties in the various majors:
Math > Physics > Actural Science > Computer Science > Economics/Finance > Life Science > Engineering > Business General > Social Science > Humanities

(in reply to: Engineering) This scale is one of the closest that I have seen in this forum that I agree with. I´d change it a little bit:
Math > Physics = Actural Science > Economics/Finance > Life Science > Computer Science > Engineering > Business General > Social Science > Humanities

(in reply to: Engineering) how do i define a limit? what is an integral?
Get real buddy! engineering math is not watered down..
I could potentially see someone trying to argue that physics involved more tough math than engineering. But To say health science, or economics or finance has harder math is about the funniest thing ive ever heard.

(in reply to: Engineering) you must be the most ignorant artsy on the planet. You put computer science behind life sciences and that other shit... a computer science degree is about the closest you can get to a math degree without actually taking math

(in reply to: Engineering) do you have any idea what your writting? or are you just trying to rank arts programs high to mend your self confidence?

(in reply to: Engineering) I don´t know who the fuck are you calling the artsy but I´m the one who put computer science right after actural science.
And my ranking is correct unless you can prove I´m wrong, I´ve done my research and I don´t need to run my mouth like you to gain some respect, in which you´ve failed miserably.
Engineering is a great major, nobody is claiming otherwise. You´re the one putting down arts students for no particular reason except probably the obvious lack of self confidence in your own program.

(in reply to: Engineering) I have one question for you.. have you even taken calc 2 yet? because by how you type, and the problems that frustrate you i would guess no.
Dont make the mistake of thinkign your special or somthing for having a problem that cant be solved by subbing in "U",
I assure you that engineering students have much bigger problems

(in reply to: Engineering) Math is such a useless degree. I understand taking some math courses, but fuck man, so much of the math you´ll learn is useless.
