Physics with concentration in Mech Engineering

  1. May 28, 2015 #1
    I'm almost done with my AA and was planning on continuing with my path in Mechanical Engineering, BUT the school I am planning on going to also offers Physics with a concentration on Mechanical engineering (BS). Could anyone give me an insight on this? Thank you!

    I don't know much about this degree, but if you want to be a Mechanical Engineer, you should get a degree in Mechanical Engineering, not a degree in Physics with a concentration in Mechanical Engineering. Sounds like such a degree would have less beefy courses on the ME side, and put you at a disadvantage when applying for a ME job against others who have the full ME degree. It depends I suppose on what your goals are.
