Hi, I have completed second year of bachelor of science degree, and I am considering switching to a combined degree bachelor of science/bachelor of engineering. If I decide to do only one degree (science, major in physics), it would take me another year to complete Bachelor of science, and then honours year. (Therefore, to complete science(honours) degree would take me two years). If I decide to do combined degree, it will take me 3 more years (+a few courses I would take over the summer). If I do combined degree, I would not do honours year in physics. My plan is to do a phd in physics after completing my degree (regardless of whether I do a combined degree or just science+honours year). (They told me that doing honours year in physics is not required, that doing science/engineering combined degree is sufficient.) The main reason why I might switch to a combined degree is to increase my chances of getting a job. My question is whether switching to a combined degree would really be good decision. Completing my undergraduate study would take a year longer and would, of course, cost more money. Also, I don’t get to do a honours year in physics. After completing my education I will have a combined undergraduate degree in science/engineering and a phd in physics. (with honours in engineering and no honours in science) Would that degree make it easier for me to get a job than Bachelor of science(honours) and a phd in physics?
