Hi I am in my final year of A-levels (Grade 12), and have applied to some universities home and abroad for Electrical Engineering (for States and Can., Fall 2004). Universities in Pakistan won't let me apply for ANY form of engineering (even mechatronics). I always thought Elec. Engineering would be more about physics and computing (Subjects I am currently studying: Physics, Mathematics (Pure), Mathematics (Mechanics), Computing Studies) and that it had nothing much to do with chemistry (yes, I realise how wrong I was for believing that!) 1. Will universities in the States/Canada be more forgiving regarding this? 2. Will I be able to make up for this by means of additional chemistry courses while studying electrical engineering? 3. If I get admitted into any university, how hard of a grind am I in for? 4. How many years am I looking forward to losing?
