    I've got offers for Engineering but I do enjoy Math and I think there many not be enough Math in an Engineering degree. The question excludes the obvious choices like Mathematician and such.

    I think your employment prospects are better with an engineering degree. Of course, you could argue that i'm a bit biased, as i hold a masters in electrical engineering. There is plenty of math(s) in engineering - particularly if you delve into communications engineering (which is my field). There, everything is statistical, because random processes are everywhere. A minimum is engineering is a bachelors (or equivalent). I know that on your side of the pond, often people with 2 yr degrees are called "engineers", but they are not here. Those are termed technicians. You will not end up even half running a project as a technician, in most cases. In order to run a significant project - say $2 mill USD - you will need a master's degree. On this side of the pond, someone with a masters in EE can get around $90k ($90,000) to $140,000 depending upon experience. Living costs are generally lower than in the Uk, unless you consider places like NY city. Then, they are about comperable. I live near D.C. - it's cheaper here. Good luck! Cheers.

    A good engineering degree is composed of lots of maths, much of it advanced and pure.

    Old thread, now closed

    Judging by their posts in other threads the OP stayed with Engineering...
