I'm hoping to start uni next Sept and am considering my options. I was keen to study mechanical engineering, but I did some reading about robotics, specifically to do with prosthetics, and it sounds amazing. It appeals particularly because med school was an option for me too at one point, but I decided I wasn't suited to hospitals and patients. But the desire to really make an impact in helping patients is still very strong. I have looked at Bioengineering courses and Medical Physics, but I want to keep my options open in Engineering, which is partly why MechEng is so attractive. Now I'm wondering whether EE would be more useful if I wanted to specialise in Robotics later. I think I would enjoy studying either EE or MechEng as a degree on their own. And from what I've been reading, the job opportunities and salaries for both are pretty even? I should add, I'm applying to UK unis, so I have to decide pretty much now. The modules required in each first year course are so different, it would be difficult to switch later unless I retake the year. I'm applying as a mature student of 28 so I can't afford anymore restarts. Thanks for any help!
