Durham (MEng General Engineering) vs Warwick (Maths/Phys) Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am a post-alevel student in a gap year and reapplying to university. I've applied for Cambridge and Imperial aswell but I just recently got rejected from cam and imperial hasn't said a word yet (following the logic of interview cycles being in order of how early applications are I'm assuming its a rejection). I have A*AAA in f.maths, physics, chemistry and maths and applied for mech/general engineering (and warwick being an exception just to keep my options open to whether i should go for applied or pure side of science).

    Engineering is versatile as you could go onto engineering sect aswell as others like finance as you learn IT skills and business side of engineering in the course. However Maths is particularly strong in warwick and the joint honours makes it so that u have lab skills and knowledge of how things work in our world through physics whilst doing maths. Im not particularly fixed on a certain career as I reckon i'll decide during my course.

    That being said, I'm stumped on which to pick as I have strong interests for both fields. I would appreciate some general comments on what to do and discussing the career prospects of each of the two degree degrees.
