    Hey. Next year ill more than likely study chemical engineering, perhaps as a double degree with either science or commerce. I live in West Australia, and there are two universities that i am considering (Curtin and UWA), however im finding it hard to decide which of the two i would be better off with.

    What factors should i considering when selecting an engineering degree? Does anybody know much about these two universities?

    Thanks in advance for the help,

    In what field of engineering is one interested? I recommend browsing the websites of the engineerig schools/departments of both universities. Try to learn about the research and publications of the faculty members. One can also browse the websites of engineering/technical societies with regard to conferences and publications of members.
