yes, can somebody reply to this? I'm currently choosing between these 2 courses through streaming.

it is said that studying for mech is tougher but it's prospect is better. civil is easier but not much prospect.

also, does getting honors affect the salary you get? i mean, even if i graduate with a civil(hon) but the employment prospect is low, why would i get civil at all?

also, can an engine degree get u a job in the sevice/finance sector? if so, would a civil eng degree do the job? how does one do a job well a service/finance sector when one is not trained in that area??

it's all very confusing to me. somebody please reply!!! :confused:

Well, I'm working in Construction industry so I'm working with Mechanical personnel too. My younger brother studies Mechanical too.. However, Mechanical is quite general, almost learn everything to deal with electrical, mechanics, etc. Civil is more specialized.

Personally, people whom I met in construction industry, usually they push most works to their subcons. Unless you are planning to work as sub con engineer, or to work in a specialised mechanical company, else i would suggest you to go for civil.
