Quote from Elina on 22. Oct 2009 at 15:49:
Is it really that rare for a girl to like science and technology? Luckily my boyfriend isn't the jealous type because my future school mates are mostly men. Grin

It's not exactly rare, but at my university the faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics, which includes the Schools of Computer Science, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, definitely has more male students than female. It's something that certain people in the university seem to stress over: "How can we encourage more female students to enrol in these subjects?"  
 
Personally I don't see what the big deal is. Are girls/women being discriminated against? I don't think so, I think they are simply not as interested in these subjects. I am not sure what right anyone has to say they SHOULD be interested.

As someone who switched from an undergraduate program in astrophysics to sociology and anthropology, there is easily more women in soc/anthro than physics. At least more attractive ones... Roll Eyes

I only ever completed a BA (Hons) but because I went to an old university, it was automatically upgraded to a Masters a few years after I graduated. Sweet  Smiley
