Hi I'm a student at Brunel University. I like engineering for planes, cars, robots, prosthetics and many more. The obvious thing would be to take general mechanical engineering. The question I have is, what is the disadvantage with the general mechanical engineering engineering as well as the advantage? How much am I losing or gaining?

Thank you, please help

There isn't really a disadvantage in taking mechanical in general but lets say in the future if you decide to work with designing aeroplanes, then obviously that will be difficult because you wouldn't have specialised in certain topics, that doesn't mean you cant work for a aerospace company though, there's loads of jobs mechanical engineers can do like propulsion, structures etc. One thing I would say about mechanical engineering though is that you get to choose pretty much all your options in year 3 & 4 so it could get a bit random if you dont choose wisely whereas in courses like aero you are on a set path whether you choose easier modules or not you will always have compulsory aerospace modules which will lead you on a path to become an aerospace engineer.

hello ,
I wanna ask Brunel's student about course content for both Mechanical Engineering (MEng) and Mechanical Engineering with Aeronautic Engineering (MEng). I've searched it and seems like both course content consist of same subject for every level,
May i know what are the differences between subject that we will learn if we that Mechanical with Aeronautic (MEng) instead of general mechanical. Im an international student currently doing my foundation in engineering and looking forward to study abroad in Mechanical Engineering that related to aviation industry cause thts my passion is. Really need a reply from you guys

Thanks in advance
