(For those who met on campus…)
Being a hot cheerleader in UCLA doesn’t come for free, clearly.
So when did an institution of higher learning actually get the cajones to ask for a piece of your future salary? At least disguise it in a form of a donation request or lifetime member fees…
Being straight is good. The situation itself is ridiculous - i prefer my kid to go to France to get education, if i am not wealthy at the time.
That might backfire for liberal arts colleges.
I’m wondering why Americans don’t go to Canada a to have a free college?
Since college students started whining about how much it cost.
It’s a perfectly fine offer in my opinion. You have the right to say no and take out loans instead.
Plus perhaps it would incentivize schools to offer degrees of worth.
Ok, but can one say I don’t honestly know how much my Basket Weaving major is going to pan out exactly…
I am glad they don’t, at least not in masses
Free is not always better?
Don’t underestimate france engineering education.
But i guess in US, in stanford etc, they could get more than just education.
Yeah, and maybe if it’s going to have a sucky return for the school, they shouldn’t be offering that major.
I do think your title is pretty funny, sfdragonboy.
France has great philosophers and mathematicians, not engineers. Did you ask around your coworkers how many know about ETH?
I know ETH all too well.
Airbus is french. Their education is pretty good.
Are you Swiss? You went to ETH?
No, but my specialization at MIT was UAVs.
these came around the same time I was working on them too, and our prof was a bit jealous of them for having cool demos.
What does google do with UAVs?
We have one or two efforts, and recently there was a pr nightmare. We have loon for internet balloon thing, wing - i forgot what they do and i think there are couple more i can check.
I,myself, will soon depart for robotics to set up a team, and maybe we can do uavs at some point hehe
