About This Club

For past, present, and future university students!

  1. What's new in this club
  2. Oh, sorry, my bad ! :p Needless to say, I agree with you.
  3. Bro I think you misunderstood. I meant a person that is a Shi'a Muslim who is studying History as their degree, the point being that, from my experience anyway, not many Muslims (let alone Shias) go into these areas May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى grant us all success.
  4. Wa alyakum assalam dear brother, Actually, I am not doing Shia history specifically. The undergraduate course at my university is a medley of different histories from all over the world (South Asia, Europe, Africa and the New World included), and we don't get to choose a specific course at the undergraduate level, to get a holistic view of the world's history, I think. That option is available for us only at the masters level. But I do intend to do research on Shia history further up the ladder. And it was great meeting a fellow-history student!! Studying history such an amazing experience!! Best wishes for your success !!
  5. Assalamu alaykum, I'm doing Ancient History myself, also in my final year. Nice to find a Shi'a History undergraduate; not many of us enter these areas I think, especially the Classics, which some of my Shi'a friends haven't even heard of.
  6. Assalamu alaykum, I am pursuing a BA in history.....this is my final year. After that I plan to continue with my Masters degree and after its completion, get a fellowship if I can. I want to research on religious sociology in the future.
  7. Asalaam Alaykum, I am a college student, currently studying for secretary profession. My plans are to continue studying to get into university Inshallah. I have studied a variety of subjects; welfare assistant, maths & English, a pre university course to get access into university and a few more.... I have a broad interest which makes it a bit hard for me to make my final choice. I am a bit jack of all trades.
  8. I'm into Computer Science specializing into Data Science. In my 3rd year in a 4-year cirriculum. God knows where I'll be later !!
  9. Geotechnical and structural are good fields to get into, but higher risk than some others. (And higher pay, to compensate for the risk.) I seriously considered a geotechnical specialty, but when dams fail, people die. I didn't specialize - it wasn't required at that time - but I took mostly electives in hydrology and hydraulics, and a few environmental and geotechnical, then I worked in land development (which draws from several fields) and enjoyed it very much.
  10. What is your Academic Stance?

    At my University, you don't really have to specialize in a particular area. I mean, it's just 'Masters of Civil Engineering'. But in addition to the core units(which everyone has to do) they also allow you to select a certain number of electives from a list. So far I have done an elective on transport engineering, but it bored me to hell. I feel I am more inclined towards geotechnical or structural engineering.
  11. What area of civil engineering?
  12. I have been reading books since I was a small child, anything I could get my hands on. More recently I have added MOOCs to my educational program. Most of my self study lately has been related to geology and astronomy, with a bit of history, political theory, and economics for variety. I'm planning to shift back toward environmental science and land development gradually over the next few years so hopefully I can get a job once my children are all in school. I'm also interested in several languages, and in 3d animation, but there are only so many hours in a day. Mind you I'm a polymath, but not a genius polymath like Elon Musk, just a non-specialist.
  13. What is your Academic Stance?

    I'm currently completing masters in Civil Engineering. Hopefully I'll secure an internship soon.
  14. Expand upon your road to becoming a Polymath.
  15. Autodidactic polymath with a BS in Civil Engineering that I'm not currently using but might again someday.
  16. I never been to high school.
  17. Salamun Alykum members of the group! To get better out of this club, In my opinion it is very necessary to have a discussion on what Academic level our members are now. What are their plans and why? In this age of loaded information and knowledge one must not leave a spot where he thinks he can attain some points! Today learning has gone to the next level where people are doing MOOCS (Massive Open Online Courses) rather classroom courses for plenthora of reasons. People having same discipline can do those Moocs together. That'll be fun. Secondly knowing about each others academia will also help us to network better!
  18. The leader of this club should be you. JazakAllah. Your piety is a good fit for it Alhamdulillah.
  19. Salam, What is the exact role of this group? Like what benefits could we get?
  20. This would be better in someone else's hands. Who's up for being club leader?
