Can anyone give a comparison of the workload's in terms of hours your likely to have as a Physics undergrad compared to an Engineering (EEE specifically) one? (UK university's incase it's country dependent) I'm trying to decide which course to take and although I'm more interested in Physics, I'm leaning towards Engineering due to the employability prospects. (I want to work in finance but Engineering would be a secondary career if finance doesn't work out) I think the deciding factor will be made upon knowing which course has the highest workload. As I know a lot of people overlook extra curriculars and I'd like to have a little time to play some sports etc. I've heard some people say that Physics contains harder material (more hours spent revising notes), but Engineering has all the labs, lab reports, group and individual projects which take up a lot of time and so it total's to a lot more work. Other people have said that Physics students also get all the other 'stuff' and have to work just as long as the Engineers. So what's the truth, specifically in terms of bare-minimum hours of work (not including re-reading notes or the 2 extra hours you're meant to spend per hour of lecture time), just pure work, who has the harsher workload?
