    I am caught between 2 choices for my degree subject, engineering or physics. Personally I think that a physics degree carries much more recognition and therefore a higher salary however from what I've found online there are very few purely physics based jobs out there so the skills that I'd learned would need to be adapted for other tasks. In engineering there is a large amount of jobs and a clear similarity between the degree/course name and the job title as an engineer (although a physics degree also has a notable connection with engineering). Which path do you believe would give the greatest chance of a job and a decent salary?

    Well, what do you want to do for a job?

    Follow your dreams, there is so much opportunity..regardless but obviously engineering seems to lend itself to more jobs at the end.... but the physics/engineering/science skill set is so highly valued in society..
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
