On average, an architecture major will spend 22.2 hours a week working on projects and generally furrowing their brows, while those head-in-the-clouds chemical engineers spend only 19.66 hours a week. Before taking home the "Living on Ramen in the Studio" prize, however, it's worth noting that pretty much every major has to spend some time outside of classes studying: even those undertaking PR + advertising spend an average of 12.17 hours in exterior academic pursuit, according to <a href="http://thetab.com/us/2017/02/06/ranked-majors-work-hardest-59673" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">The Tab</a>.</p><p><strong>Which major works the most hours?&nbsp;</strong>&nbsp; &nbsp;</p><ol><li>Architecture 22.2</li><li>Chemical engineering 19.66</li><li>Aero and astronautical engineering 19.24</li><li>Biomedical engineering 18.82</li><li>Cell and molecular biology 18.67</li><li>Physics 18.62</li><li>Astronomy 18.59</li><li>Biochemistry or biophysics 18.49</li><li>Bioengineering 18.43</li><li>Petroleum engineering 18.41</li><li>Mechanical engineerin...</li></ol> http://archinect.com/news/article/149990544/this-week-s-picks-for-london-architecture-and-design-events This week's picks for London architecture and design events Abigail Banfield 2017-02-06T14:18:00-05:00 >2017-02-08T22:08:10-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/y2/y26hacbgwp2wz1m4.jpg" width="650" height="424" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>This week, the focus is on the people we design for, in both a&nbsp;literal and&nbsp;figurative context; from a talk explicitly on the relationship between architect and the public, to the consideration of the concept of 'home'.
