    Hi. I'm writing this on behalf of a friend, who's dad said he'd be very good at researching and designing products that solve and improve future issues. To do this however, you apparently should work in a university team where you research and develop stuff. If this is right, then what degree should he be taking?

    Also, if this isn't suited for him, he says he'd really like a career that uses a combination of science and art (not architecture), but he doesn't know of any. Could somebody help him? Thanks!

    Engineering would probably be the obvious choice. There are many types of engineering though, so which branch would be more down to his own interests/abilities.

    Is maths essential for engineering?

    I'm not an engineer myself, but I think it's essential, yes.

    Have a read of this guide, it seems like a good starting point.

    Because they are on behalf of friends . I'm not hiding anything. If you know me so well, then you'd know I want to be a solicitor, studying A level Health and Social Care, Biol, Econ, Geog and the EPQ and predicted 5 A*'s, and intending to apply to UCL, KCL, Cambridge, Exeter, Durham next year. Seriously Smart, you need to get seriously smart and read my posts in order to figure it out. See what I did there? Classy.

    Why was it necessary to tell everyone your predicted grades :s
