*International student english level; don't mind the bad english please*

I already have decided to study Mechanical Engineering in University of Birmingham but I came upon with another course in the same university which is Mechanical and Materials Engineering.

The thing is I'm not sure what will be the actual advantages of doing both degrees or if it is really worth it.

Is there somebody here that is actually taking the course or have already graduated?

There are lots of degree programmes that combine a main discipline (such as mechanical or civil) with a smaller area or specialism (such as materials in this case, but other examples are renewables, automotive, etc.).

I don't really see any disadvantages to taking a course like this because I don't think that the minor element of the degree, in this case materials, will hold you back from mechanical jobs (lots of people out there with mixed degrees working in jobs you would think the minor element would have no relation to), but in some cases it might help you move into a specific area.

And your English is fine.
