    So I'm applying to Cambridge, Imperial, Southampton and UCL for engineering. I'm particularly interested towards Aerospace and Electrical. What draws me towards aerospace is primarily the fact that I love planes and would love working on one and seeing it fly. It would be fun at uni level (where I'd get to make my own model, etc.) but at industry level I guess I'll have to be specialised in one area and mostly work on simulations with very little hands on. The pay is a factor too which is pretty good in aero.
    However, one of my motivations for engineering is that I'd like to see myself invent a product or make breakthroughs in technology and perhaps later have my own company or be an executive of one.
    Electrical engineering sounds like it might provide me this opportunity but I'm not really sure. I'm thinking whether to apply for the electrical and information course at imperial as the information part would allow me flexibility with software and pay in computer fields is amazing.
    So I'm basically confused between these two course. Any help?
    Oh one more thing, which field would allow me more travel?
