Best A-Levels for EngineeringWatch
Unfortunately, I now have to choose my A-Level Subjects which will be:
Computing or DT (Resistant Materials)
The problem is that I've been told that I can't do both Computing and DT (Resistant Materials) because of timetabling, so I have to pick one.
Which subject do you think would be more helpful for an Engineering course.
The big problem is that I don't know what field of Engineering I want to go into, because if I was doing something like computer engineering, Computing would probably be better, but if I was to do Mechanical Engineering, DT would probably be better.
Which subject do you think would generally be more beneficial, DT (Resistant Materials) or Computing?
I think DT would be more useful/relevant than Computing but I'm not sure.
I would take music out straight away.
Music! Good for you
Well, I certainly wouldn't.
Computing would be more appropriate than DT. You should contact admissions people that know what they're talking about though.
the stuff in the DT course you will probably learn anyway, while the computing should build on your maths and logic skills (and could be harder to learn at a later stage)
So you think Music is going to be useful in a Engineering degree?
EDIT: *******s, I misspelt "degree".
No, I don't, but that's irrelevant. I intend to do a Maths degree, and I'm doing Chemistry and Music A-levels. Will they help me with a Maths degee? No. Is it worth me doing them? Yes, because I'll enjoy them and (hopefully) succeed in them.
I'd rep you but I gave out today's after I read a 'lol'some post.
Is it worth me doing them? Yes, because I'll enjoy them and (hopefully) succeed in them.
@ the OP: I did computing and D.T. I would say that computing has come in more useful so far, but do what you think you'll do best in.
DT doesnt have much 'engineering' in it but computing has programming which is a major part of EEengineering
My guess would be
Might be worth replacing music with F Maths if you can handle it.
