Main Question or Discussion Point

hello friends. I am currently in my third year of my bachelors of science in honors astrophysics, and after some consideration, I have decided that I want to go into aerospace engineering. Up until recently, my plan was to eventually get a Ph.D and go into a career of research. However, I've come to the decision that I want to do something a bit more practical, yet still be involved in a space related field. Would it be beneficial to complete my final year and obtain a degree in astrophysics, and then go on to get a degree in engineering (I'd probably aim for a masters eventually), or should I just start towards engineering next year and forget about the B.Sc. (I'm pretty sure a lot of the credit for the math and physics courses I've already taken would transfer over to an engineering degree, but beginning right away next year will mean an engineering degree in a shorter amount of time, but will forfeit the astrophysics degree). Any input would be great, thanks in advance.
