    The first few classes were generally tedious to me. Basically, most of the stuff you do at that level is rather insignificant from a practical standpoint. If you do want to do something significant at that level, then you must engage the use of a computer to crunch the tedium for you. The upper level classes tend to mask the tedium with your own personal interest. You generally get to pick your upper level classes, so they cover interesting topics. The time consumption is probably unavoidable.

    I was employed as a hardware engineer in the telecomm industry.
