Which Is The Best Course?

Mathematics is the best course that anyone can do and be self-employed. Nigeria is like this today because we lack a lot of people who read mathematics. Which course do you guys think is the best? i have said mine. PEERIOOD!

@ everyone

I do not think any course is better than any other. From my viewpoint, it all depends on what you are able to do with the course you choose to study. I have seen some people study some 'HOT' courses and yet not be able to do something worthy with it.

Initially [when I was in secondary school], I wanted to be an Engineer [Electronics] or a medical doctor, but as time went by, I observed that my interest in the use and development of computer programs as well as an inherent aptitude to solve problems was increasing, then I studied Computer Science - and I am glad that I did.

So, the bottomline is this: Study what you can use to benefit your life and the lives of those around you. Furthermore, some people study some courses because they just want to get a degree. When they come out, you see them doing well in other areas of life.

So, my point is: NO COURSE IS BETTER THAN THE OTHER. MAKE THE BEST OUT OF WHAT YOU STUDY.

Very Controversial thread!

The best course depends on individual What you want to be. Where your passion lies.

At the end of the day you don’t want to end up somewhere you don’t want to go, studying something you don’t like or doing something you don't want to do.

And because no course can survive on his own, one course is bad afterall. Only that fingers no dey equal!

@ poster

If you read mathematics and it aids your thinking ability, Is it not on other courses/profession. Or can you be thinking about maths and money starts flowing in?

This is a shallow thread.

It is blatantly obvious that if everyone on earth had the same occupation no one would survive! Even the bum on the street is neccessary for economic growth!

Sheesh!

Engineering is tha bomb! O'course it has maths in it, but also a whole lot more. Hell, Nairaland wouldn't exist if not for the IT aspect of engineering. I don't think I've come accross any math problems on Nairaland so far!

Yes, but If you major in economics (and really want to do economics work), be prepared to go to school beyond the baccalaureate degree. In some quarters, you need to have a PhD in economics to really be considered an economist (but an MA could suffice).

true talk @oghos2k.

Engineering without a doubt, is one of the best courses to study. You get great analytic skills and can work in other disciplines such as IT or Business especially if you major in electrical engineering. Anyone who is really good in math should get a degree in engineering and proceed for an MBA. Before you know it, you'll be making six figure$.

But it really boils down to one's aptitude. You will excel in life if you study in a field that you have a high aptititude in. People like Wole Soyinka and Chinua Achebe wouldn't be where they are today if they studied medicine like most of our parents want us to.

na wa oh, na fight? i thot this was all about posting and sharing ideas, why all the name callings, there is no course that is not important, just like there are many members to the body, and none could say it is the most important, there is not way the engineers could be functional, if there are not testers to test all they ave done, and mathematicians will be useless if no one to proof that all they have calculated are correct, neither would doctors be useful, if the pharmcist cant produce medicine to cure all their findings, infact, cleaners are as well important, cos they have to clean after y'all, although, nice to be a career and a professional being, but what matters is how to interact with one another, one love and remember, we are all important and the best course is how u relate to others and your environs, peace

maybe u shld have asked which is the best course in 2007, cos these things change wit time, there was a time where the best course was fine arts (leonardo davinci and all), then sciences (einstein et al), law, medcine, a few years ago, it was the jet age, but rite now, its the Information Age, i think Computer Sciences is the best course to study now,

Everybody's course is the best course. However, i would say the best course to study is yourself and how you relate with the world in which you live such that you are able to live life to the fullest without infringing on others rights to the same benefits. For me anything that will make me earn extra income while at the same time being in peace with my world is what matters. I earn some extra income daily at my website www.9jasfinest.com I would say studying it is the best course for now guys!!!

molecular biology is the best course you can study. Without it you'd all be dead by now.

you guys are just so shallow in your thinking.Engineering is the only course one can study and affect lives and maybe medicine. Engineering deals basically with the safety of individuals.when working on a project, an engineer puts many things in place just to make sure the user of the finished product doestnt get himself injured or even killed.

A famous quote from Herbert Hoover illustrates this engineering view:

Engineering is a great profession. There is a fascination of watching a figment of the imagination emerge, through the aid of science, to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realization in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings jobs home to men. Then it elevates the standards of living and adds to the comfort of life. That is the engineer’’s high privilege.

The great liability of the engineer, compared to men of other professions, is that his works are out in the open where all can see them. His acts, step by step, are in hard substance. He cannot bury his mistakes in the grave, like the doctors. He cannot argue them into thin air or blame the judge, like the lawyers. He cannot, like the architects, cover his failures with trees and vines. He cannot, like politicians, screen his shortcomings by blaming his opponents and hope the people will forget. The engineer simply cannot deny he did it. If his works do not work, he is damned,

On the other hand, unlike the doctor, his is not a life among the weak. Unlike the soldier, destruction is not his purpose. Unlike the lawyer, quarrels are not his daily bread. To the engineer falls the job of clothing the bare bones of science with life, comfort, and hope. No doubt, as the years go by, the people forget which engineer did it, even if they ever knew. Or some politician puts his name on it. Or they credit it to some promoter who used other peoples’’ money. But the engineer looks back at the unending stream of good.

it shows that you do not understand anything about maths one who read maths has greater advantages over any other course. take this from me. a mathematician is train to think critically. they can also work with the press for your information!

i guess its because you are studing maths thats why you are defending it,please always remember to say the truth at all times,you know that most of those studing maths end up becoming teachers not even bankers except if they have high grades or they have long leg,in the world i dont think people need to study maths before they can suceed,even illitrates know maths very well at least you cant cheat them at all,but when you study courses like English or engineering then you could go to places,like English for instance,you could teacher,you could work with the press,you could become an ambassador to any country of your choice still depending on your grades and long leg.
