Engineering Degree Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi all, my questions are as follows... When going to college is it possible to get a mathematical

Engineering degree with an emphasis in computer science and computer engineering as well as mechanical engineering? 

I need a degree that will cover these four fields reasonably or is mathematical engineering enough?

Also, will have to get multiple Degrees?

Hi, It's good to think seriously about the future.

Here are a few things you need to know.

Most colleges/universities that teach engineering degrees have a 'common core' for the first year for mechanical, aeronautical, automotive, production, civil, building services and so on.

One bonus of this is that it is easy to switch after the first year if you decide to change the emphasis of your studies, when you specialise.

The studies will include the basics of mechanical science, materials science, electrical science, engineering mathematics, engineering computing and so on.

 

The computing element will be about the use of computers.
Specialist computing courses will be about the design of the software that engineers (and others) use, and/or the design of the computers themselves.

 

It is not usual to get several first degrees (Batchelors) for several reasons.
The usual route is first degree then a higher degree - a Masters (which may be in accounting or business and taken after a few years industrial experience)
Remember much of the art of engineering is about best use of money.

The other reason is that full/top professional qualifications for most engineering disciplines used to be available at Batchelor degree level, but have now been elevated to require Masters.

 

Does this help?

Please ask if you have further questions.

Ok then I only need to do the common core once then I can get a few degrees elsewhere right?  Is it enough to just get a lot of bachelors in engineering and at least 1 or 2 masters?

So best use of money is to make sure I get a degree and or degrees that help me achieve the goal I want to reach with out spending more to get to many masterys if its not cost effective?

A master's is how many years I forgot?

If you are going to do any sort of degree you are going to need to do some degree level thinking.

So I suggest you get your thinking cap on and re-read what I said about the common core.

Wartec, I'd look to a bachelor in Science, and a math major. In my course subjects can be chosen in that background within computing. You are likely to have covered mechanics by that point, but if you need the paper look to a post-grad engineering degree with a computing specialist. If you need it.

Depends on the university and the courses offered. Look into it.

It isn't an option to focus on all these aspects for one degree in the UK; you would need to complete one (my university offers a two-stage degree, this means you can study two subjects but one graduate in one field of study).
Could you inform me where you live and what job you wish to achieve on completion of your degree?
