Hello,

My name is Andrei and I am one year away from my university application. But I have one big problem: I don’t know exactly what I want to do or where is the best place to apply at.
I want to work with technology. I love robotics and I would like to study this at university. However, as far as I know, I’m limited to choosing between Computer Science and Electrical Engineering with an optional course of robotics. I would like to be good as much at programming as at building electrical circuits and systems. I want to have as much theoretical knowledge as practical experiences.
Could anyone please help me with a few tips? What course would best suit me? What university is the best for Computer Science? And how about Electrical Engineering? The more details, the better.

Thank you very much!

Hi Andrei not really my area, but there are a few ways of going about this.

Method 1
Find the course that interests you. You can use this link to id which courses are available, then go to the uni website to read a more detailed description.

Method 2
Identify who does the job you are interested in and what its called. You can then see what degree is used to get there, then id the course that way.
I will post some job profile sites below.

Within engineering there are many more specialised degrees which focus on robotics or electronics. Maybe one of those will be what you want to do rather than CS?

Which career?

Hello AndreiS22,

This is Jon Ellison from De Montfort Uni in Leicester.
Following on from what 999tigger was stating, your best bet is to research the unis that teach Computer Science / Electrical Engineering and have a read through what each uni/course covers.
Hope this helps.
