    Congratulations, Brewnog! I think this merits a celebratory carrot cake treat, at the very least.

    From which university, the University of Sheffield? I'm also getting a BSc (Hons) from Sheffield.

    Eeeeeeeee!

    Ok, the pink champagne has kicked in now. Yay!

    It's not from Sheffield ramollari, that's my hometown, although I'm in Sheff all summer! It's from either UMIST, or The University of Manchester. I get a choice since the old institutions have merged since I started my degree. Any suggestions which I should go for?

    Astronuc, mattmns, I'm done with formal education (for now, anyway). It's all about the job I've got designing big yellow diggers! Yay!

    Well, I went for an "all you can eat" Chinese buffet lunch this afternoon, only to return home to find that my family are ordering, yep, you guessed it, Chinese. Joy! Deep fried food isn't that bad for you, right? :smile:

    A scientist/engineer is 'never' done with formal education. I am learning new things all the time in my work, and I churn out the equivalent of a PhD dissertation about every 1 or 2 years, but I get paid for it. :biggrin:

    That's why I added "formal" in there. I appreciate that I'm probably only going to use about 10% of my degree in my job, and I know I've got loads more learning to do! What I meant is that I'm done with, urrm, university education for a while. I'm thinking of doing an MBA in a few years time... :smile:

    Good on ya, old boy! Never a doubt in my mind that you'd get it done. The only remaining question is: How long will you take to convince your new employers that they should change their logo to...

    Well, it means that I'm a Bachelor, an honourable one at that. I'm also an associate member of the engineering club. :smile:

    Well, I've not done my research yet, but it was a thought!


    That thing really is disgusting, isn't it! Someone tell Moonbear to stop playing with the cloning machine in her lunch hour and to get on with some proper work!

    'Grats Brewnie !!!!!!!!!!1111

    Here's a suggestion. If you are sure you will stay in Engineering or related technical field, get it from UMIST. If you want to "explore"other areas like management :yuck:, then I think getting your degree from UM may be more helpful.

    So do folks make jokes like, "...the two schools are finally united forever", or is such poor taste in humor endemic to me ?

    Ever considered a career in 'hard' turned 'soft-and-wimpy' rock ? Last I recall, Sheffielders were good at that.
