  • The 4th Industrial Revolution - Is College Necessary Anymore?

    Is attending college on campus necessary anymore? I think it is not personally. In fact, other than the social elements, I believe attending college is an enormous waste of time. What do you think?

    Well I think there's more to it than that! I've had some brilliant professors over the years who have helped me grow as a person along with the academic side of things!

      In my opinion college is still important for networking purposes, however the student debt burden is not worth it in my opinion...

        Watchu talkin bout...if you want a professional degree, you need to attend a college. Its that simple!

        ICI on the other hand is providing good value for money. The fees are nothing compared to what the actual campus fees are!

        PS: Keep in mind that its a 'certificate'

          Is this an American problem I'm too European to understand?

            Haha, well said. Americans and their education system. Thanks to that Kelly Porter lady, millions of lives will be saved. Otherwise, the American healthcare woulda left their public to suffer.

            Whats the problem wit y'all? I'll tell you what, y'all butthurt Europeans over our American dream. Its the land of opportunity. And in case you forgot, we got Harvard and Yale and MIT. You need to pay to enroll in these institutes and yes it costs much. Otherwise every plumber would call himself a civil engineer!

                      Interesting read. The marketability point wasn't very well written, so I'll try to explain it better for everyone here:

                      The marketability of a job in simple words is, how likely are you to land a job once you are qualified. There are degree programs that will land you top office jobs immediately. But if you choose Gender Studies and Egyptology as your major, don't expect much in return!

                      Also, a few programs enable students to be self-employed. Programming/Software Engineering is one of those. You can sit on a couch and work from home offering services online!

                      PS: I'm not saying Gender Studies is bad, in case an SJW spams my reply! I'm saying what is a plain simple fact. It won't land you a handsomely paid job.

                      PSS: Grind now so that your kids and dogs get the backyard they deserve

                        Big_Fat_Panda Yup spot on mate. This exactly why people fear an AI takeover! Long distance learning is bound to replace Flesh and Bones learnng someday!
