Hi there, next year I'm enrolling into Bachelor of Engineering in University of Auckland (New Zealand)! I'm in the Accelerated Pathway program which means I skip the first year of General Engineering and go directly into a specialization. I'm thinking of doing either Engineering Science (which is about Operations Research and Continuum Mechanics) or Mechanical Engineering. I prefer to do Engineering Science at the moment because it gives you the freedom to choose more variety of courses than Mechanical Engineering (which is really specialized). But I'd like to know more about what Operations Research and Continuum Mechanics are. I have searched online but I'd like to hear insights from people who have studied these core subjects. Any advice on Mechanical Engineering is also welcome! Thanks in advance to all!
