So im on placement abroad and i seem to have alot of time on my hands so im thinking ahead to my 4th and final year at uni in the uk, im on the boat design course at coventry university. Our university offers a BA or an undergraduate masters degree (MDes) of which i need to make a decision on which to take! The basic difference is that with the Mdes course you have to right a research report, this intern leads to the design project for our final degree show. Where as with the BA you do a design competition and the final project for the degree show.
Im just wondering what people in the idustry take of the two differing degrees and how this may affect employment chances?
I have tryed explaining this to my boss on placement to get his opinion but the language barrier has proven this difficult, any opinions on this is much appriciated.
