This is the best leehom's song from his new album. I know there are few Fruits who are always emo-ing for the period when they joined the mobility programme in UK especially after listening to this song. LOL.
I still remember at the beginning of year 3. All of us who have been to UK were suffering from post UK syndrome. Everyone was so yearning to back to UK for the freedom, weather, lovers, junk food, fashion and travelling !!!
Well, I hope you all dont always emo :(
Two days ago my lecturer visited the office where I have my internship.
My boss and him discussed quite a lot of stuff regarding the criteria of a fresh graduate should have. They talked about nowadays chemical engineers are too dependent on programme in designing as programme may lead us to the wrong direction. He also mentioned that students nowadays should focus on fundamentals instead of thinking that programme is superior. Meanwhile, we shouldn't too depend on Hysys.
But, in university, I feel that the university is quite focusing in the Hysys programme which can minimize the time spending on a certain design. I would agree that fundamentals of certain process such as liquid-liquid extraction is important. But, all the fundamentals in separation and chemical and phase equilibria aren’t taught that well in the university. Students weren’t understanding the concepts in the text and I believe the marks from these fundamentals modules are scaled up, especially the process dynamic and control.
So, are the university is in educational based or in an earning money based ? Are the government focus on the education in both public and private universities to improve the living standard in Malaysia? Are the students nowadays having high enthusiasm in learning ? The most concern part is , are the fresh graduates nowadays able to cope with life? Definitely not, if you just hold a BEng cert.
