Was wondering if a BEng is enough or a MEng would be better for my career choice. Firstly, I'm deciding between engineering physics and mechatronics engineering. I talked to a grad student at my university who done a BEng in electrical engineering, and is now doing a MEng in engineering physics, and he said that if you do just a BEng then you will end up as a maintenance engineer, whereas if you do an MEng you will be doing engineering design, simulation and experimental and lab work. Is this true? He did tell me that he applied for design, simulation and lab based positions and had no luck getting them, and is now why he's doing an MEng. I would much rather do the design, simulation and experimental and lab based work/positions. Can anyone clear this up for me? Also, what would be the difference to a potential employer if I were to eng phys BEng and continue on to do a MEng in eng phys, opposed to doing a B Sc in physics and a MEng in eng phys? Would he consider me "different" whether I do my bachelors degree in eng phys or physics. By "different" I mean is the engineering position more likely to go to someone with a BEng in eng phys rather than a B Sc in physics, even though we'ed both have an MEng in eng phys?
