Electrical engineering degree, mathematics degree, or another type of engineering? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am a year 12 student about to go into year 13, and its time I made some choice. Some background, I take maths, further maths, and physics, and I got A* B B, with the A* being in maths and the B's being in computing and physics. I am dropping computing, however I was only 2 UMS off an A in that so I am getting that remarked.

    Anyway, until a few days ago I was seriously considering doing a degree in mathematics, however I don't know if I would enjoy doing mathematics for 3-4 years non-stop. So I researched a bit and I found electrical engineering. What can you tell me about an engineering degree, and how enjoyable is it? I am skilled at maths, OK at physics but with enough work I should be able to bring myself up to an A in that, and am predicted an A* for FM. What would you guys consider I do? Would you recommend another type of engineering? Are there any electrical engineering undergrads who have anything to say about the degree? One question I have is, is there much handy work (soldering and stuff)?
