Computer science or Architecture? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Im 21 y/o and i did a year in Architecture at a good uni and am currently doing a year in Computer Science at an average to bad uni.

    I dont know whether to continue with Architecture or Computer Science. I LOVE Architecture way more than Computer Science but when it comes down to my grades, I excelled in Computer Science whereas I did mediocre in my first year of Architecture.

    I have the option to continue onto second year of either Architecture or Computer Science but I don't know which one to do at all...I was thinking to either go down the Architecture route completely, the Computer Science route completely, or try and combine both fields? If so, how would I go about this? I've heard that architects who can program are sought after nowadays as it's apparently the future of architecture? (Sorry if I'm wrong I've heard this) I was also thinking if it was possible to do a masters in Architecture after my bachelors in Computer Science but I don't know whether that's possible or not.. please excuse me if I come across as stupid I need clarification.

    Can someone maybe help me in deciding? I'd appreciate any help.
Which accompaniment is best?
