Interested to know what any members of the bitcoin forums studied if/when they went to university. I'm looking at studying software engineering.

I studied electrical engineering AND software engineering and out of them I can say I rather software. I had fun with some hardware projects in electrical engineering, but in a way, it's too messy. Burnt hair and shocked fingertips haha.

Applied physics and electrical engineering, then I changed my mind and started studying civil engineering, which is what I currently work with.

How's that working out for you? I was always curious if internship/just going for it was better or worse than going to school to learn business.

I'm homeschooled, never been to traditional college/university etc, and I've been doing business since 13. I might be the exception to the rule, but I seriously question the value of a classroom/project based on anything other than real life situations.

Honestly studying business opened my eyes to how I.T+S really affect organizations and helped me better understand my role / duties at work. Real life work situations will have taught you most of the skills you need for basic analyst / specialist roles. However imho I think there is a lot of really useful knowledge to be gained from a traditional college / university setting (i.e high level think for project planning and operational efficiency). As an added plus you'll get to see things from another vantage point (the academic setting) which might help better prepare you for what you might encounter in an internship position and the business world in general.

Something you'll find that they do a lot now in college / university (I went to college) are case studies. They force you to apply all the knowledge / formulas you studied + whatever innate business acumen you naturally have to separate those who know what they are doing from those just going for a piece of paper. I highly recommend auditing a few business classes (i.e. management decision making / organizational behaviour)  to see if you like them. I hope this helps you in your decision to check out a college / university education
