I am entering Hofstra University this fall as a mechanical engineering student, and I am curious what the workload would be like if I took a second major in mathematics?
To clarify my situation, here are some points:
im simply considering it and dont have to make a decision until, at the earliest, my second semester
I am fascinated by how things work, and I have been told that math is the "purest" science in that it explains everything. I am operating on the assumption that this is accurate
while I have a passion for engineering and hands on work, I would also very much like to participate in research
math is one of my weaker subjects, so I would have to devote extra time to study, though it still fascinates me
Im a hard worker, and plan on using summer and winter class sessions to get as much out of college as I can
i intend to continue college through my masters degree at a minimum
Additionally, MechE is 131 credits and mathematics is 124. My university allows credits to apply to more than one degree. Please feel free to ask for any other clarifying info you need, and Thank you all for your advice in advance!
