Currently I am in my third year in engineering - applied mathemathics. I have been thinking about what I would want to do after I get my master. I have concluded that I have 3 options.
Work as an engineer.
Study one year pedagogics, then work as a high school teacher.
Apply for a PhD.
In my country you can, if you have a master in engineering - applied mathematics, study one year where most of the studies are pedagogics, and then be considered as any other high school teacher (in math). You will have a master in Teaching.
Since I am not sure of what I really want to do, all three options are "exciting". I want to have as many doors opened as possible.
So, for example, I could get my engineering degree, then a teaching degree and after that either work as engineering/teacher or apply for PhD.
Therefore I would like to know if it is an advantage in terms of admission, when applying for a PhD, if I have studied pedagogics for one year (right after I have finished engineering school and right before applying). Or would it be preferable to go direct from engineering to PhD, if that is what I want to do.
My location is Sweden. I have not given any thought to which university I would want to do my PhD, but the country would be in Sweden or Germany.
