    Hi,

    I am set to study Electrical Engineering this September at Newcastle Uni, however, I am not sure if I wish to pursue engineering as a career when I graduate. I chose engineering because I know that you could apply to all of the business/finance type jobs with an engineering degree, but I know the reverse is not true.

    My question is, would I be hindering myself by studying Engineering degree? And what do employers think of them?

    I am worried that I would be seen as too nerdy, with poor social/soft skills when compared to someone who might have studied finance/business/economics etc...

    Any replies and advice would be greatly appreciated.

    No. You can do all the business/finance careers with an engineering degree as well. Employers in business and finance really don't care what degree you do. They won't think that you have poor social skills since they test that during the interviews. There are lots of people with engineering degrees in finance and business, don't worry.
