Dual-degree vs. BS Phys+MS MechE

  1. May 16, 2009 #1
    Hi all,

    I am in a bit of a cunundrum and I'd appreciate your help. I've decided I want to be a mechanical engineer, but my school offers no form of engineering. I'm a rising junior and I am joint-majoring in Economics & Mathematics (the coursework of which I enjoy - I won't give that up). Here are two possible educational paths to engineering which I have been considering:

    1. Graduate a year early, then study for BSME as part of 3-2 dual-degree program with nearby engineering school.

    2. Graduate on time and double major with BS Applied Physics, then apply to MSME programs.

    Any comments on the comparative feasibility, difficulty, time/money effectiveness, etc. of the two paths? Thanks!
