The Milan Polytechnic is a prestigious institution. People come from the U.S. to study there. I graduated there with the best grade and a special mention.
It was a challenge. There are students who study there who fail an exam 10-20 times before passing it, and they aren’t stupid.
I specialized in Automatics: how to make a nuclear power plant work; how to distribute electrical power; how to prevent a turbine destroying itself and kill someone in the process; how to control thousands of turbines at a distance of thousands of miles from each other from a single point; and much more.
My favoured subjects were robotics and artificial intelligence.
