Hello everyone
I am having trouble deciding between computer science or aerospace engineering.
Maths is my favourite subject which is why I am going towards these degrees, but I do not want to study a maths degree, if anyone is suggesting it.

I have an interest in aircraft, and will like to learn about how things fly, maybe work in a aerospace company.
However I have started learning to code using html and css, where I am a complete beginner, and have found it interesting as-well. I have also started python. These are being learnt by YouTube.

I have looked at discrete maths, which is found in Computer science, and I don’t like the way it looks

I don’t know what to choose between them?
Can someone help me please?

Thank you for replying

You can work in the aero industry pretty easily with a computer science degree but it's somewhat more difficult to go the other way around.

Also discrete mathematics is used in aerospace degrees a lot too, namely in control systems.

You could do an aerospace degree at a uni which has a pretty big programming component, but as said you'll be encountering more discrete maths at those unis. Though discrete maths really isn't that bad, you'll learn it quite quickly.

Can you tell me how can I know if I will enjoy studying computer science?

Can you give me some examples like enjoying coding or something?
Thank you

If you don’t mind me asking what degree did you study, if you have went to university?
