Lawatan ke USA Nov-Dec 2012: Princeton University 1

Princeton University, ranking no 6 di dunia, letaknya lebih kurang 1.5jam dari Bethlehem. Saya berterima kasih kepada Prof. Pessiki, kontek saya di Lehigh University telah berbaik hati untuk membawa saya ke sana. Semasa di Malaysia saya menjadi khadam beliau maka ini adalah hubungan dua hala yang sangat baik.

Tujuan saya ke Princeton Uni adalah untuk mendapatkan pelajar undergraduate mereka ke UTP untuk mengambil bahagian dalam summer internship yang biasa dilakukan oleh universiti di USA pada bulan Jun (summer). Alhamdulillah, selepas menghadiri mesyuarat dengan tiga jabatan saya telah diberitahu bahawa peluang itu ada. Saya membawa berita gembira ini kepada ketua saya dan beliau sangat gembira. Moga Jun 2013 akan menyaksikan sumbangan pelajar Princeton di UTP.

Dan ini juga menandakan peluang saya menjelajah USA akan berulang di tahun hadapan. Mungkin Washington D.C. dan Seattle?

Perjalanan bermula di freeway. Kenderaan dibawa laju tapi kurang kemalangan jalanraya. Kenapa tidak di Malaysia? Masalah sikap.

Menghampiri Princeton Uni, kami masuk jalan kampung.

My ride. Prof Pessiki's Subaru SUV. Dia kata nak tukar dari tahun lepas lagi.

Sambung perjalanan. Pemandangan yang menarik dengan dedahan pohon togel.

Sudah sampai. Princeton Uni sendiri adalah sebuah pekan kecil. Tiada stesen guard sebelum masuk.

Parkir adalah designated. Jadi kami mengambil keputusan untuk parking dan meneruskan agenda dengan berjalan kaki. Bilik-bilik mesyuarat adalah jauh antara satu sama lain. It is going to be a looonnngggg walk.

Agenda menapak bermula dari tempat parkir.

Masih menapak.

Jangan ditanya bangunan apa. Yang pasti, it is awesome!
Saintis dan scholar hebat pernah ada di sini. Saya berfikir adakah ini bangunan tempat diamnya John Nash satu masa dahulu? siapa John Nash? Kena tengok filem A Beautiful Mind.

Princeton Uni adalah universiti swasta. Kata wikipedia, endowment mereka adalah $17billion dengan ratio akademik:pelajar adalah 1172:7582 = 1:6.5. Ini berbeza dengan UTP, ratio adalah 1:18 dengan endowment yang tak banyak pun. It is a long way to go. Princeton pun established pada tahun 1746 jadi pada mereka pun ini bukan jalan mudah.

Berikut adalah alumni Princeton yang terkenal (wiki):
U.S. Presidents James Madison and Woodrow Wilson graduated from Princeton, as did Michelle Obama, the current First Lady of the United States. Former Chief Justice of the United States Oliver Ellsworth was an alumnus, as are current U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justices Samuel Alito, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor. Notable graduates of Princeton's School of Engineering and Applied Science include Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos, Google executive Eric Schmidt and Lisa P. Jackson, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. Actor Jimmy Stewart graduated from Princeton. Writers F. Scott Fitzgerald and Eugene O'Neill attended but did not graduate; Selden Edwards and Will Stanton graduated with an English degree. Notable graduate alumni include Richard Feynman, John Nash, Alan Mathison Turing and David Petraeus.
Notable faculty members include Paul Krugman, Joyce Carol Oates, Peter Singer, and Andrew Wiles. Notable former faculty members include John Witherspoon, Ben Bernanke, Joseph Henry, Toni Morrison, John P. Lewis and Woodrow Wilson, who served as president of the University 1902–1910. Albert Einstein, though on the faculty at the Institute for Advanced Study rather than at Princeton, came to be associated with the university through frequent lectures and visits on the campus.

Alumni saintis/scholar yang terkenal (ramai Nobel Prize) boleh dilihat DI SINI.

Masa tidak mengizinkan untuk saya merayau bebas. Sambil berjalan, sambil ambil gambar mana yang sempat.

Banyak-banyak universiti, memang paling patut bangga bila dapat masuk uni ini untuk ambil bidang kejuruteraan sebab Princeton is one the best in the world.

Princeton Uni termasuk dalam senarai 8 uni Ivy League. The term Ivy League also has connotations of academic excellence, selectivity in admissions, and social elitism. 
Ivy League schools are viewed as some of the most prestigious, and are ranked amongst the best universities in the United States and worldwide. All eight Ivy League institutions place within the top sixteen of the U.S. News & World Report college and university rankings, including the top four schools and five of the top nine. A member of the Ivy League has been the U.S. News number-one-ranked university in each of the past twelve years: Princeton University five times, Harvard University twice, and the two schools tied for first five times.

Sekarang baru saya faham kenapa Princeton University adalah penting.

Andrew wiles adalah orang yg solvekn fermat's last theorem. Turing pulak orang yg break the code of Enigma; Nazi punya code decrypting machine.
