design project dinner
So we talked about internship, talked about modules, talked about FYP, talked about profs, talked about (and visualised) how our design would fail terribly.
Overall the design project was a good learning experience. You were presented with a real life problem, and you needed real life solution. And along the way of finding real life solution, you were met with more real life problems. What supplier office no pretty girl, what hardware store auntie scold...
Of course, there were some cruel stuff in the design project. Not talking about conducting tests and simulations on human beings, but one thing I still don't feel comfortable with is the grading. You have 1 bell curve within each group, which means some will get A, some won't. Generally speaking the group leader will get the highest grade (that's why a groupmate said my grade was free one), but it's not a de facto thingy. I know of groups whose group leader didn't get the best grade.
Whatever it is, I was lucky to be with my group. One year ago, they pushed me onto the chopping board. I ain't complaining.
(btw, any headhunter wants my groupmates' names?)
