Laurent Simons: 9 Year Old Graduates From Campus

Laurent Simons, a nine-year old from Belgium is graduating with a bachelor’s degree at a tender age at a university that specifies in technology courses.

Laurent Simons is studying electrical engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology, a tough course even for students of an average graduate age.

The child has been described as “simply extraordinary,” by many and he plans to embark on a PhD program in electrical engineering while also studying for a medicine degree, his father told CNN.

His parents, Lydia and Alexander Simons, said they thought Laurent’s grandparents were exaggerating when they said he had a gift, but his teachers soon concurred. “They noticed something very special about Laurent,” said Lydia.

Laurent was given test after test as teachers tried to work out the extent of his talents. “They told us he is like a sponge,” said Alexander.

While Laurent comes from a family of doctors, his parents have so far not received any explanation as to why their child prodigy is capable of learning so quickly.

According to Simons mother, the reason behind her son’s cleverness is because she “ate a lot of fish during the pregnancy,” she joked.

Some parents across the world keep wishing they had kids as smart as this one but it seems this kind of gene pool is quite rare.

The Eindhoven University of Technology (TUE) has allowed Laurent to complete his course faster than other students given his circumstances.
