Id prefer it this way.
Students get more one on one time, less disruptions etc etc.

I've heard from many uni students that engineering studies is very similar to 1st semester at uni.
A couple of my friends doing engineering at UTS said that their 1st semester truss analysis was only finding the reactions at the supports, so just moments.

The mathematical side is quite similar, all of the concepts you learn are the foundations of what we do. Eg. truss analysis (sections, joints), SF, BM, materials, electricity, all your mechanics, stress/strain, Hooke, Young, and many more subtopics and topics. What you do in two years (the maths and analysis side), we do in 1 semester (or in 4 courses in first year - materials, mechanics, electrical and physics). Also depends on which engineering stream you do.

Urgh. Now you guys got me all confused. I'm going to year 11 next year. Got one more subject to pick. Business Studies..? or Engineering Studies..?
Leaning more towards Engineering because I want to see what its like now and if I enjoy it instead of wasting a year at uni to see if I enjoy it then...
I'll end up dropping one of the two anyway but just to satisfy Board of Studies requirements... so should I do engineering??? What do we learn about in year 11 Engineering? Opinions? Help?

Not sure about what you learn , but engineering is pretty full on compared to business.

Wish I'd seen this like 2 years earlier ._. would have done bio or something instead of engineering. I find it harder than physics :(
