>>4635>they don't want me to do it because I'm too young and inexperienced
Yep, that's what I'm afraid of: the work experience meme. I am, however, starting to wonder if this new cybersec meme degree can land me a bureaucratic government job. Being a bureaucrat or a police techie sounds quite a bit better than my current job, which I just don't like at all. >>4636>My department claim to be highly ranked but their stuff is no better than what I have done for free online.
That's a shame, anon. At least you can do networking. Just make friends with the more disciplined students and see if they get really cool jobs later on.>>4723
Other sources seem to say the same, with crypto being very different from typical math classes. Very little calculus.
Having to do a 180 from normal math sounds annoying. I do, however, believe that cybersec will remain a hot topic and a sexy meme for quite a while. Besides, if the average comp sci student turns up their nose for crypto, thinking it's too weird for them, then that just makes the meme even more special.
