Any STEM Majors Here?


#1

Hi, I’m pretty new to the community. I first downloaded Wattpad in 2012 and was a silent reader for about five years, but left for awhile, and now I have finally decided to try my hand at writing. I have now discovered this huge community and wanted to see who’s out there! Any fellow STEM majors out there?


#2

Yup! Electronic engineering here.


#3

Probably atypical: PhD in Nuclear Engineering (plasma physics). A very long time ago, before I became a writer and actually published.


#4

Half major probably :joy: I’m working on my master’s in physics


#5

Me :raising_hand_woman:t2:‍♀
MS in a computer field. Currently studying for a PhD.


#6

MA Fluvial Geomorphology (landforms created by flowing water). Also dabble in glacial matters.


#7

So cool to hear about the variety! I’m biochemistry and hoping to get my PhD in organic chemistry!


#8

Wow, mad props, sounds like a lot of physics! That’s my hardest class!


#9

Woah, that’s impressive!!!


#10

Lots of physics majors here! What part of physics are you studying?


#11

That sounds really interesting, I had never heard of that before!


#12

It’s great to see all these women in STEM going for advanced degrees, and doing something amazingly creative at the same time!


#13

I was a STEM major! Graduated in Human Physiology!


#14

I got a couple degrees in literature, linguistics, and anthropology, and did some writing fellowships. But I didn’t want to teach creative writing and I got burnt out trying to earn a living with trad publishing.

I love running rivers, so I went back for a grad degree in Geography/Water Resources: good excuse to hang out on the water. I’ve run data collection programs on several rivers, designed rafts and other gear, and worked as chief boat-chick, rowing in some beautiful places.

I still write, for fun. Definitely rather earn my living outdoors.


#15

Really, you found so many? :smile: I’m studying astrophysics


#16

Thats so fun! Thats what one of the girls in my book is studying! Could I maybe ask you some questions about your major? I try to keep my science info accurate. It would just be about what type of classes you have to take and stuff like that


#17

That picture is absolutely gorgeous! I love the mountains! We have a lot of big bodies of water where I’m from, but no mountains!!


#18

Woohoo fellow STEM people!

I recently graduated undergrad; I had a Bio major and a Chem minor


#19

Yes sure, ask whatever you need :smiley: My course is actually physics - because we don’t have different graduations here :disappointed_relieved: - and then I had to choose which exams to prepare

That’s the Snake River in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, USA. I did field sessions there for four years, collecting ground-level data for correlation with satellite imagery, to enable mapping and such. Being the only woman on the crew, I also did most of the cooking. (sigh)
