A training, which is known particularly hard to implement, is nine-year-old belgian to clear in record time.
Like many other nine-year-old uses the belgian Laurent Simon, like the time in front of the tv and with his dog. But he would also like to develop artificial organs, and he is well on the way to have the skills in order.
In december, he will receive after the plan his bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Eindhoven technical university in the Netherlands. And the milestone he is the youngest ever to achieve.
the Training in electrical and electronic engineering at the university is really set to take the student three years. But Laurent Simons stands to face cuts of nine months.
It is, according to the nine-year-old belgian "normal", but rather "cool", as he puts it.
At the university learning Laurent Simon among on how to develop an integrated circuit which is an electrical circuit consisting of several components on a small piece of material, such as a microchip.
His teachers are running out of words of praise for the young students.

While Laurent Simons' friends from primary school, running around and playing, using Simon's time in the laboratories at the university.
- I don't miss the very elementary school, but I still have friends there, " says Simons.
The young belgian started in primary school in Belgium as a four, and he completed in a year and a half. All in all it took him five years, from the time he began in elementary school, he finishes a college degree.
He has been brought up by his grandparents in Oostende, Belgium, until the beginning of this year, because his parents have been busy with work at their dental clinic in the Netherlands.
The dental clinic is the time to sell, so they can dedicate all their time to their smart child. They follow him, among other things to the university every day, because he is too young to take the trip with the train itself.
