    I read in the daily telegraph that right now you get some of the best career prospects as a civil engineer whereas the career prospects for electronic engineers are among the worst. The electronic engineering course has an extremely high drop out rate as the course is supposed to be very hard and has a hefty workload. Job security is greatly improved if you go to one of the top unis for electronic engineering where 'scouts' from companies will sometimes look for future employees - otherwise civil engineering may be a safer bet. Can't really comment on what it is like for an international student though
