Degrees are just Paper....International Scholarships and Engineering Jobs for Week ending 06 July 2014

"A degree is just paper". Yep, that is what she said. The "she" in question is an aspiring blogger who can not string two sentences together despite claiming to have a UK degree. We were discussing the relevance of education to social mobility and that was her summary like a thunder bolt from Nigerian striker Musa's right foot. Even though she said it spitefully, if the truth be told she scored me there because flustered as I was she does have a point.

Only recently no other person than the US President Barack Obama, himself a living proof of the ability of education to throw a man to the pinnacle of opportunity received shtick for apparently criticising liberal arts degree. Sadly in the case of this blogger I was the engineer and she was the liberal arts type yet what did she really mean? What did President Obama mean? As a side note the traditionally antagonistic Republican party commended Obama's remarks. Talk of friends in low places.

Truth is that in life our choices do matter. Whether they spring from our head or heart we need to be hardnosed on what degrees we pursue, when and where. After my bachelors degree in Electronics and Electrical Engineering I had to work before I could win scholarships to pursue a PgD in Geographic Information Systems, an MSc in Satellite Engineering and currently a PhD in Radar Remote Sensing. As an international student there are very few scholarship opportunities for us (yes talk of friends in even lower places). That is why I had the idea of making it easier for everyone not just international students to connect to high quality universities with jobs and scholarship opportunities. Getting high quality "paper" is the very essence of this blog.
