    So i want to study Aerospace or Aeronautical engineering. But the Uni I really want to go to, Durham only has a general engineering course, and in the 3rd year they do not offer a Aerospace engineering module (so i would specialise in mechanical engineering), only in the 4th year they do.
    My sister reassured me that i may find the maths in a specific engineering degree very hard, and doing general engineering gives me the ability to avoid hard modules.
    Is a General engineering degree and then a masters in Aeronautics, as good as a degree in aerospace/aeronautical engineering? Also, would General engineering degree + a masters in aeronautics pointless,if i wanted to work for Airbus, McLaren etc..?
    Thank you

    That's not true at all. It's more than likely that you will study the same maths modules regardless of what discipline you study.

    And you don't graduate with an actual general engineering degree either (which probably wouldn't be much use anyway), but the discipline you choose to specialise in, which you will have to decide by your third year I think.
