For my college degree (MSc), I had to validate a number of courses by succeeding at end-of-term examinations (or occasionally repeat examinations…), in-class tests, home assignments and projects. The range of subjects was very broad in my school: maths, physics, chemistry, electronics, economy, management, foreign languages… It was also mandatory to spend 6 months abroad. The last semester consisted of a 6-month internship in a research lab or at a company, for which I had to write a thesis describing my work.

My primary degree was:
Year 1: Maths, Biology Chemistry & Physics: lots of labs & end of year exams
Year 2 Maths Physics & Computing: more labs & end of year exams
Year 3 Maths & Physics :labs & as above end of year exams
Year 4 Physics: research project plus labs & end of year exams
…. its all a long time ago so hard to remember!!!!!
For my B.Eng I studied modules in Computing & Maths & Information Technology. Plus Engineering Science and more I can’t remember
For the Masters it was an online degree with a new module every 8 weeks… weekly assignments & end of module exam…. repeat every 8 weeks for 2 years plus a 30,000 research thesis….
My PhD was 4 years of research, analysis & writing 100,000 word thesis
No wonder I’m tired 😉

For Bachelors+Masters degree, I had to pass about 40 exams (5 maths exams, basic of electrotechnics, electrical circuits, electromagnetics, electronics, telecomunications, programming&algorithms, and many more) + to do a final project (which in my case was using maths for analysing human voice).
For PhD, I didn’t have any real exams, but I had to do a lot of experiments, describe them, write them as scientific papers and present them at a conference (at least 4 papers), describe all of them together in a thesis, and finally present and explain the thesis.

I studied general science in TCD, so in first year I did 1/3 biology, 1/3 chemistry, and 1/3 maths. Then in 2nd year I had 2/3 biology and 1/3 maths. I had to specialise in 3rd and 4th year so I did zoology, which is mostly biology but we had some computer coding and statistics too
what topics do you find difficult in maths
what inspired you to choose your course?
Why did u decide to take this career path
