Studying Studying Astronomy after Systems Engineering?

    Hi, I'm in my second year (out of 5) of Systems Engineering. I would love to study Astronomy (which is also a 5 year career) after I get my degree, but I don't know how useful it would be to finish studying that late, and I'm not sure how useful it would be to have both degrees. Obviously I'd have to do some engineering work while I study astronomy, otherwise I'd be wasting my engineering diploma.

    By the way, I live in Argentina, so fortunately money is not a concern; there are many free universities which offer Astronomy courses.

    Why are you studying systems engineering if you want to study astronomy?
