I've gotten an offer from both Nanyang Technological University (Aerospace Engineering) and National University of Singapore (Mechanical Engineering) but I can't make up my mind which one I should go for, if any sifus would like to give their two cents it would be greatly appreciated
I'm very much interested in the field of aviation such as planes and spacecrafts, hence why I applied for Aerospace Engineering in NTU. However, even though NUS only provides Mech Eng they do have specialisation in Aeronautics so I guess it's still what I wanted. NTU Aero Eng is viewed as prestigious since it has a very small intake per year, but then again, NUS seems to have slightly better recognition than NTU when it comes to international stage or from employers' POV. NTU Aero Eng had higher fresh grad pay until last year when NUS Mech Eng was slightly higher (but by not much) while NTU still had higher 75th percentile pay.
Both NTU and NUS has fantastic campus life from what I've read and heard, except one being more rural than the other but that isn't a problem for me.
At first I was sure of NTU but after doing more research, NUS also seemed like a good choice. My mind keeps jumping between both unis so I really can't make a decision. NUS seems to be reaching out to Malaysian freshmen more than NTU, though. (That's why I started considering NUS).
So what do the sifus here think? Which is the better choice? NTU with a good sounding degree or a normal degree with a good sounding name (NUS)?
