Hey everyone,
I am going to be starting my Junior year in Aerospace engineering this fall. I am hoping to focus on the space applications of Aero, more specificly propulsion systems. I enjoy most of the topics involved, but a part of me is still drawn to Computer science. My freshman year programing class was the only class that when I was bored would actually sit down and program my hw for fun. I am also programing a ton at my internship this summer. Needless to say, I am somewhat of a nerd.

On to the constraints: I would be at college for one extra year if I got a double major, but could graduate on time with a minor.  is somewhat of a concern because I pay out of state tuition, which sucks.

My questions are this:
1. Is it worth the extra year of college to get a dual degree?
2. Will I be able to put both degrees to work in the field?
3. Is there a pay hike for a dual degree?
4. Will having two degrees cause me more work(aka 2 engineering loads for the price of one for the company)
5. Will any of this matter 3 or 4 years down the road? I am planning on eventually getting my masters, but in what is still a question I have.

Thanks for all of your help!
