Accelerated Engineering vs an Engineering double degree
« on: October 02, 2021, 12:59:00 am »
I'm hoping to go to Monash next year, and I've been tossing up between their accelerated engineering pathway or an engineering + computer science double degree.
Here's the predicament, choosing the double degree would lock me into the two course, with very little flexibility compared to if I were to do the accelerated pathway (as the double degree fills most of your elective units). But then I'm not entirely sure if the double degree would provide me with greater opportunities after uni.
So what's everyones thoughts? Do you think it would be better to do the accelerated pathway and get the masters degree in a short period of time or to just do the double degree?

And while we're at it, I've been looking at both the Robotics and Mechatronics engineering specialisation and the Electrical and Computer Systems specialisation, I know I won't actually have to choose my specialisation for a while, but currently my thoughts are that if I were to do the accelerated pathway I would do Robotics and Mechatronics since I could then do my masters of Electrical engineering and cover a lot of what I would have missed in the ECSE specialisation. But if anyone has some thoughts feel free to throw them at me.
