    How many of you guys are actively attending at a University, or other College of higher learning. If so, what was your area of education? What do you wish you had done differently? Any suggestions for the next generation who will be reading this?

    I have have a degree in Mechanical engineering and another in Quality engineering. Would like to go back and do masters in automation.
    I would advise people going to college/uni to not do a course that has little to no job opportunists. I know lots of people that did courses because they sounded cool or interesting but they haven't much hope of getting a job after years of hard work getting the degree.
    Also make sure you have fun and try not to drop out :D. Its easy to hate a course and get sick of it but just stay working at it. It will more than likely benefit you a lot in the future :)

    Hello fellow Mechanical Engineer(I think I can say that even though I technically haven't achieved the rank yet ;) ),
    I joined a dual degree course in IT back in 2008 because at that time there was a boom in opportunities here due to all multinational companies coming to India but later on I realized I made a mistake because I realized that my interest is in Automotive Engineering and now after 5 years of dual degree course(yeah the course is 5 years long) and 2 years of doing various stuff including starting up my own company in a government incubator, I am now going after my dream. I would say, if you have the time and your family's support behind you, then go for your dream/interest otherwise stick with what ever will get you a place in the market easily.

    Are you my brother...? lol. My bro has finished his Bachelors in Bio-Chem, and is currently working on his Doctorate... and constantly talks about blowing stuff up.
    I love physics... perhaps because my mother has taught it at the University for... like... 12ish years.

    All she has is a bachelors degree, so she's been teaching the Algebra based general physics. Though she just got her masters in education, so she should soon get a raise from the position of "quarterly faculty" to "real human being".

    I'd definitely recommend to any students who are attending a college/university to absolutely do an internship. It's one of only two things I regret about my time at university. The opportunities afforded to you by the company (and similar companies) are insane to pass up. All of my friends from school who took part in internships ended up working for those companies right out of school which jump started their careers to where they really wanted to go.

    The second thing I regret, is not finishing my Masters. I'd love to go back and get my Masters in Computer Science, but with my current job and the hours I work, it's just not something that's feasible for me right now.

    I currently am attending college. This will be my 4th year in the Computer Science field. I also have a Math Minor completed. I also just got an internship not too long ago where I am building an app for Android, iOS, and Windows.
