I got a second direction of study with the SM studies, and my master thesis led to the following PhD. The combination of a scientific and an engineering background is rare and turns out to be very useful, and it definitely gave me much broader carrier options. I would only recommend this for people who are already very interested in engineering and technology, as starting with something so different in such a short time is a challenge.
