    Hi everyone.

    I'm really stuck as to whether to go with computer science and engineering. I'm interested in both but I think I'd edge towards CS, but I don't want to be stuck behind a desk all my life in a dead end job.

    What are the potential career prospects for doing both degrees and which do you think will be more financially beneficial?

    Thanks, sorry if this is in the wrong place.

    Many engineering jobs can be desk-based too (most engineers aren't hands-on "mechanics"). And CompSci jobs can be out visiting clients as a consultant or rummaging inside a network cabinet doing a technical diagnosis...

    And more importantly, many careers/jobs don't ask for a specific degree anyway.
