3 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Choosing a University Course

Sharing is caring :)

As you are reaching the end of high school or even your pre-university qualification, you’ve probably spent hours researching your next steps in life and are overwhelmed by the wide range of courses and industries available for you to choose from. Picking a university course is said to be one of the most important decisions you make as you will be picking your career path for the rest of your life. But stress not, here are 3 important questions you should be asking yourself before making the decision of choosing a university course : 

Question 1: Do I have adequate skills/knowledge for this specific field?

The first question you would need to ask yourself is if you have the adequate skills and knowledge needed to succeed in that specific field? When enrolling into a university course, you are not expected to be affluent in all aspects of the industry but you should have an adequate amount of knowledge, skills and even passion as a stepping stone for the field. As an example, if you decide to study Mass Communication, skills that would be useful include critical thinking, design & development as well as cultural awareness. Even if you do not acquire this knowledge and skills at the moment, you would then have to ask yourself if you have the means to acquire them? Will you be able to learn and improve your skills as you dive into the field?

Question 2: What are the career prospects? Does it align with my career goals in life?

Next, you would need to do your research on the career prospects of your industry of choice. When picking a university course, the main idea is to equip yourself with skills and knowledge regarding the industry that you are able to carry forward into the workplace upon graduation. You should also consider the work environment and culture of your career choice and ask yourself if it is aligned with your goals and aspirations in life. As an example, if you choose to take on a medical degree, you would need to consider the career prospects which in this case is only limited to become a doctor or a surgeon. Along with that, if you decide to study medicine, asking yourself if you’re mentally and physically ready for everything that comes along with it would be advisable as you would need to undergo a minimum of 6-7 years of studying, horsemanship and practicals along with a fast-paced environment with long intense working hours.

Question 3: What are the prerequisites/requirements needed for this course?

Before you decide what degree you’d like to earn, it is important for you to understand the different levels of qualification needed in order to enter the career path of your choice or to work the job of your choice. For many professions, earning a Bachelor’s degree is sufficient enough to be eligible but others may require a higher qualification such as a Master’s or even Doctorate. As an example, to become a certified psychologist, you would need to obtain a minimum qualification of a master’s degree or a doctorate in order to practice. You would need to ask yourself if you have the ability and resources to achieve these higher levels of qualifications. Factors that should be considered include mental strength, time constraints as well as financial stability in order to achieve these requirements for your career choice.

For the psychologist in you :

1. Girl Interrupted

Starring Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie, Girl Interrupted is a 1999 American psychological drama film based on a memoir where the film follows a young woman who struggles with the uncertainty of her own mental illness. Set in the 1960’s where mental illness is a highly taboo topic – The protagonist of the film admits herself into a psychiatric institution after getting persuaded by her parents, tand is later diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. This film takes an interesting plot as it argues that perfectly sane people become institutionalized simply because once they’re inside the system, it is assumed that something HAS to be wrong. 

2. Split

One of my personal favourites – SPLIT follows a storyline of how a man with 24 different personalities otherwise known as Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) kidnaps and imprisons three teenage girls in an isolated underground facility. The protagonist of the film had identified 23 distinct personalities by his therapist that were formed due to childhood abuse and abandonment, each possessing their own set of peculiarities. This film is definitely one of those films that leave you at the edge of your seat with your mouth wide open as James McAvoy does a brilliant job in playing the different personalities that makes you believe you’re watching 24 different individuals.

1. 13th

Photo Credit : Netflix

This powerful American documentary film directed by Ava DuVernay thoroughly explores the prison system and how it is used as a weapon against minorities. This film was titled after the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution which abolished slavery and ended involuntary servitude. This documentary shines light on the harsh reality as it explores the raw demonization of minorities for decades to serve political ends, fear of minorities by white and the act of police brutality against minorities. Just a disclaimer though, this film previcts provocative and heartbreakingly real stories so be sure you are mature enough to handle it. 

2. The Trial of the Chicago 7

If you’ve been keeping up with pop culture, you MUST have heard of this film and it’s impact as a conversation starter. The Trial of the Chicago 7 follows the Chicago Seven, a group of anti-Vietnam War protestors charged with conspiracy and crossing state lines with the intention of inciting riots.

Civil Engineering vs Architecture: Differences, Employability, & Top Universities

Sharing is caring :)

You often hear about civil engineering but unsure what the differences are with other types of Engineering, and most students would also compare the course with architecture. You are unsure which path, either civil engineering or architecture, to choose for your undergraduate degree, which one would have good employability after you graduate, these are all the questions you are probably asking yourself right now. But do not worry, we are here to help you. By the end of this article, you will know better which course to choose.

What is Civil Engineering?

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that applies physical and scientific principles to solve problems in society. Civil engineers usually design, build, supervise, operate, construct and maintain infrastructure projects and systems. These include roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams and bridges. One famous example of civil engineers’ contribution is the Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macao mega bridge. This 55km bridge is the longest bridge-cum-tunnel sea crossing in the world that connects Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macau.

What are Civil Engineers duties?

The usual duties of civil engineers are:

  • Analyze long-range plans, survey report, maps, and other data to plan and design projects
  • Analyze construction costs, government regulations, potential environmental hazards, and other factors during the planning and risk-analysis stages of a project
  • Compile and submit permit applications to regulatory authorities to verify that the project complies with all the required regulations
  • Oversee and evaluate the results of soil testing to determine the adequacy and strength of foundations
  • Examine the results of test on building materials such as concrete, wood, asphalt or steel, for use in projects
  • Prepare the budget for materials, equipment or labor cost to determine a project’s economic viability
  • Manage repair, maintenance, and replacement of public and private infrastructure

What are the skills required to be Civil Engineers?

What is Architecture?

According to Britannica.com, architecture is the art and technique of designing and building. Architects will be involved in new building designs, extensions, alterations, restorations, and conservations from the earliest stages right through to completion. They focus mainly on the designing of a building’s look and style by using their specialist construction knowledge and high-level drawing skills.

They make sure their designs are functional, safe, sustainable, and aesthetically pleasing. One example of a famous building that was beautifully built in the style of French Gothic Architecture was the Notre Dame de Paris. That is why many people around the world were so saddened by the fire that struck the 857 years old cathedral. 

What are Architect duties?

The usual duties of architects are:

  • Create building designs and highly detailed drawings by hands and computer-aided design (CAD) applications
  • Write and present reports, proposals, applications and contracts
  • Adapt plans according to circumstances and resolve any problems that may arise during construction
  • Travel regularly to visit building sites, proposed locations and client meetings
  • Closely work with a team of other professionals such as building service engineers, construction managers, quantity surveyors and architectural technologists
  • Liaise with construction professionals about the feasibility of potential projects
  • Apply permission and advice about new buildings  from government and legal departments

What are the skills required to be Architect?

Design Skills

Aesthetics are the major key in architecture. Students must be familiar with architecture history, art, and style to bring it into a new building with the touch of your own creativity and style. You must be able to imagine, draft, draw, and make your arts into aesthetically beautiful buildings.

Computer Literacy Skills

Students must be able to master in many architectural drafting software such as:

  • AutoCAD
  • Computer-Aided Design
  •  Revit

Legal Knowledge

Architects need to master and grasp all legal requirements to build a building. Apart from the clients’ specifications, there are many legal regulations, codes, and policies that need to be adhered such as the Fire Safety Codes, Building Codes, and Zoning Codes.

Attention to Details

Architects’ drawings are heavily relied on as a guide by the construction workers. Therefore, all the drawings must be detailed to avoid problems and delays in the projects.

Teamwork Skills

You must be a team player because you will liaise with many people to ensure the project builds according to your design. You will be working with your internal team, construction team, clients, and surveyors.

Top Universities to Study Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering in Australia

Sharing is caring :)
robotics article

The fast-paced advancement of technologies in this era has made it more than possible for intelligent systems to play an effective role in the future of businesses.

Consequently, there will be a higher demand in mechatronics engineers in the industry for the next generation that will be consistently revolved around machines and technologies.

What is Robotics and Mechatronics?

What is interesting about mechatronics is that it is a combination of mechanical, electronics and computer engineering. Dictionary-wise, the word ‘Mechatronics’ itself came from “mecha” for Mechanical and “tronics” for electronics. 

Mechatronics

Mechatronics is an essential foundation for the expected growth in automation and manufacturing. It is the best of both worlds where electrical and mechanical realms complement each other to create a good system. To put it simply, you need to have good electronics skills in order to have an even better mechanical design when it comes to robotics and mechatronics, and vice versa. Mechanic engineers and electronic engineers are both specialists in their own major. However, for mechatronic engineers, they need to take both mechanical and electronic into account because they need to have a broader view for the overall design.

Robotics

Robotics is closely related to the design, construction, and as well as computer systems mainly focusing on the control, sensory feedback, and information processing. It involves the concept of Programming, Mathematics, Design, Electronics and much more. Robotic engineers deal with creating robots and robotic systems mainly to make impossible duties to be possible, and difficult duties to be convenient. Particularly in the manufacturing industry, robotics engineers help to make jobs safer, easier, and more efficient for human beings. 

Robotics can be considered as part of Mechatronics as it similarly involves these mechanical, electronics and computer engineering fields. Mathematically, robotics is the subset of mechatronics set. In simple words, all robotic systems are mechatronic systems. But, not all mechatronic systems are robotic systems. 

The main difference between those two is; inputs are “provided” to mechatronics systems whereas robotics systems “acquire” inputs by their own.
