Which Course Should I Study In The University?

By - - [ Education ]

A lot of people are confused about what to study in Nigeria.Most of them end up choosing petroleum engineering as their choice as it is seen as the most preferred course in our present economy. Before I go on I'll  like to say that every course is beneficial to the functioning and smooth running of the society so no course should be looked down on as we need each other to survive.

The world is changing, it's getting more computerized day by day so an added computer skill is needed to adjust to the changing world. A research states that in the next 40 years robots will replace manual labour in most activities done by man presently. 

The best course to study presently is anything computer related(Software engineering, Hardware engineering ,mechatronics etc)  thereby equipping ourselves for the future . Some people argue that medical field is the best field to indulge in but I don't fully agree with that because a robot can always be made to perform the role of a doctor, dentist etc while I robot can't be made to perform the role of a software engineer because a robot doesn't have a brain of it's own to replicate itself but rather relies on the artificial intelligence installed in it by its engineer. 

I'll like to conclude by saying that no matter which course you study acquire an additional computer skill we don't know what lies in store for us in the future. With computer skills you can be self employed ,most jobs  nowadays require a computer skill added to your Curriculum Vitae (CV) .

For me there is no bad course every course has it's own benefit but as we are in a compiterized age we need more of computer engineers we need more teachers, we need more soft ware engineers because every organization requires interned

I will disagree with the first paragraph of your post which says every course relevant, please we need to look deep into the courses we choose to study in our universities nowadays because soonest some causes will go into extinction with the advance in technology nowadays. Taking look at the banking sector for instance some years ago most of our transactions are done on the counter in the banking hall but nowadays with the invention of ATM machines and POS the crowd and work force in the bank has reduce drastically compared to what we use to have in those days. My opinion though

Yea, you've rightly said it. Everything nowadays is computerized. You can actually study any course in the university but make sure you have a get idea on how to use a computer. Its A pity that most people  don't like too study courses related to electronics, but if one can go for course related to that, there are get opportunities within them.

To me, you choose what you interested in, what you love. It's not about computer or no computer. Nowadays people operate computers without having to learn them. Computer program depends on the kind of field you want to go into

We need to guide our children through guidance and counseling when choosing career paths. For instance, when fill jamb forms let us guide them to choose courses that will help them to be self employed in future, after they must have graduated from the university. We know now that the world has gone computerized, and in most companies and industries, Robots have taken over jobs originally carried out by humans. To this we want direct our children to read courses related to computer science or computer engineering, that can enable them to be self reliant and even become employees of labour, not go for courses  relating to petroleum engineering.

True every course is important even down to music and theatre arts,  just put your mind in whatever course you're studying, and research on how to improve the knowledge of your field of study and stand out not just in grades but also in brains and skills like earlier mentioned.

There is one thing that you should try to remember when choosing which subject to study at university. It should be something you enjoy and that you would be happy to study in-depth for the next few years. Consider the subjects you enjoy the most at school and then research similar courses that you can study at university.

This is a very nice article. Of a truth no course should be looked down on. Perhaps, if everyone keeps studying the same course because it's a professional course, what happens to the other sectors where other courses are relevant? And besides many will be left unemployed

To be honest ,one has to think deep before venturing into studying any course in the university, you have to take of the rate of unemployment,though no course is a waste but with the country's present economy,study what you know will be beneficial to you so that your certificate  of the so called  course you studied , won't go to waste . In my own point of view based on what's happening, people are being paid based of certificate not their working experience

I am sure you know who you are or let me say you know what you are not so definately you should know what you will like to study in the unversity even with the unprdictable decisions of the school owners you will have to be ready to accept what they admit you with and later do change of course after you know more about you that the available given course is not good enough for you.

Know your capabilities

In my own opinion, I think it's better to go for a course you know you atr very good at.Go for a course in which you know you are sure of  yourself and can be the best there, there is no rubbish course

And about adding computer skills to CV,it is a very lovely idea and I think we need to follow it because everything is truly becoming computerised these days

I will say no course is more important than the other, every course has its own benefits and when one is particularly very good at what he/she does, the person will surely excel in life. You just need to put in more concentration in it.

What I will say is that having the knowledge of computer is the background to every courses in schools now a days. It equip a student to be conversant with use of internet, where you can gain more knowledge about the course you choose to study. But mind you, you must know your boundary while doing this because as it has advantages so it has disadvantages.

From my own understanding no course is better than the other.Every course of study in the Nigeria university have its applications and relevance in the society.Medicine for instance has it application on human health issues while engineering has it application and so on.

The course someone study in the university should be on what you're good in it don't follow friend when choosing your course of study because you will end up been withdraw for instance now someone that is poor in mathematics and tend to copy a friend because his or her friend is in that department the person will end up been a loser

In my thoughts,  I think its better you go for a course you are passionate for.. Most students makes this mistakes... 

You can just study a course cause your parents wants u to or that's what your friend is studying... We should study what befits us not studying medicine instead of engineering.. 

We should be able to choosely because its determines our future. If possible one could seek the counsellor advice

Normally, this decision should be made even before we enter senior secondary school so we would know the department to go to whether art science or commercial

Then during yiyr three years there you should find out the subjects you're good at and what you're driven towards 

Then you oivknwhat to study... Prayers also help

You stated it all earlier.Truly, as things seems to be, computer will be the best thing in use in the nearest future which means all must have idea of how to operate it. But in choosing carrers, no curse is bad it just depends on your location, I mean the type of country you are because you can't expect someone who studied mathematics in school to be more useful in Nigeria than been a teacher whereas there more opportunities for them in other parts of the world

No course in the university is of no relevant. Before choosing a course of study, you study yourself and know what you do best or like best. Don't follow the multitude to do the trending course, follow your passion.

If you like making people feel good healthwise, go to your medical line and if it's making people feel good psychologically, go ahead and be a psychology. Life and time is short than to go to the university to study what you don't have passion for.

Well I would say, is good for someone to go for the course his brain, soul, body, and spirit accepts, cause this actually the problem so many students have been facing, some people go in for a course which there brain cannot carry probably because they see that there friends are doing that course, and some would go in for a course because there parents forced them into it and those kind of people go in for that course without doing well on it, for example, when parents force in there daughter for medicine and the girl wants to go in for theartre arts, she might go in for the course and be killing her patients but not intentionally but because of the lack of passion for her profession.

I understand your point but not evrrever has the flare for programming or computer software. I was forced to study law for example when what I really wanted was mass communication. I failed woefully because I wasn't in anyway interested. In oickipi a course of study,an individual should put his best interests into consideration

There is no job that will be taken over by robot as people claim to say. Because human intelligence can't be replaced by the artificial intelligence. Experiences can't be artifitcialized too.

So don't panic about robot coming to take over human jobs, there coming in is just to reduce the tedious works that drains human effort. They are coming in to compliment not to compete.

This is a very interesting and educating topic, a computer skill is very helpful. And a skill acquisition. Have something you can do with your own bare hands independently is more helpful and important. Cause one might end up not getting a job after school, and there would come the need to apply something you've learnt which can be done manually.
