    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.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
