Nine-year-old Belgian prodigy drops out of university

The family has not revealed when their son will start at the US -based university or where Laurent will study for his Ph.D.in electrical engineering, as Simons said the family will only share his progress at the end of any given course.

Laurent Simons made headlines in opposition to the globe closing month, as he regarded instruct to total a bachelor's diploma in electrical engineering at Eindhoven's University of Skills earlier than the tip of the year - which could well bear made him the sphere's first ever graduate beneath the age of 10.

The university considered the timetable "not possible and would be wrong to Laurent's academic development".

Simons hails from a family of doctors and his family had initially dismissed claims from his grandparents that he is a genius until teachers confirmed it.

"As a university, we have delivered a great deal of custom work to facilitate Laurent's fast study path".

The institution further maintained that the boy's engineering course should last for at least three years but the father wanted him to finish it within 10 months.

But the university told Laurent's parents that their son would need more time to complete his studies.

"Sometimes you succeed some, sometimes you fail some", Simons told, remarking that he thinks his son has a "better future ahead" no matter what.


University representatives denied any wrongdoing and said they'd given specific treatment to Laurent within the course of their analysis. "Laurent is not their belonging".

The family said it seemed that the university was reacting to the family's decision to have Laurent complete his PhD at different institution - in the US, CNN reported.

In a statement issued by the university it was said that Simons has rejected the new timetable.

"It is unfortunate that this customization does not result in a successful completion of the training.His supervisors have enjoyed working with him, not only because of his enormous talent, but also because he is a very sympathetic and inquisitive boy".

In response, Ivo Jongsma, a spokesman for TUE, told CNN: "We never try to keep our students to ourselves". It would never be a motivation to frustrate someone. "The door is therefore still open for resuming training, under realistic conditions".

The family has not yet fixed a start date at the United States university, where Laurent will study for a PhD in electrical engineering.

"There is so much demand for Laurent, and he is a unique project which everybody wants to be a part of", Simons said.

The family has not yet settled on a start date at the U.S. university and declined to publicly name the institution.
