Business or engineering ?

Hi, I am currently going into grade 12 this year and I want to apply for engineering programs. Over the summer I heard that going into a business program would be better instead of engineering because there would be more jobs available. I am interested in both however I enjoy doing the math/science subjects associated with engineering. I only want to apply to U of T, Waterloo and McMaster. Can someone help be decide what program is better for me in the future. Is it true that it is hard to find engineering jobs? Thanks.

Why not do both?

McMaster has a Engineering & Management program that lets you add some business to your degree ... nt-program

U of T allows you to add a business minor to your engineering degree ... gineering-

Waterloo offers Management Engineering ... ngineering

Lol, as long as you study an engineering discipline that isn't too specialized or too niche, you should have no problem finding a job. Engineering is always the better option because you can always get business jobs as an engineer but business grads can't become engineers. So yeah, as long as you study comp, elect, mech eng, etc. you'll be fine.

No need to limit yourself to anything. Engineers`ll always be in demand - it`s fact and to deny it`s pointless. Business`s also good, but in my subjective opinion it’s boring. You can develop in these two areas and this`ll plus in both cases.

Engineeringis better imo if your goal is just to get a job. Engineering will maintain demand. I might have gone into engineering, had I not developed a passion for entrepreneurship and business. Plus its a stem field which means better (based on what i have researched). Furthermore you can always get a business job as an engineer but a business undergrad cant get a engineering job. If your intelligent enough for engineering, its far better than a business degree.

I think the question you want to ask is, why engineering really worth it than the career in business? Yes of course after studying in the field. I am related to the academics field, owner of capstone project writing help, I can say that engineering is one of the most rewarding career choice, apparently most challenging one. The Engineering program is really hard than the MBA program.

It's such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand so much about this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something. Have the best Roll Off Dumpster Columbus GA who can save you a lot of time managing your waste.
