I did a google search on the difference between B.A. and B.S and found a good site that seems to explain it pretty forward.

A B.A. has more of a general focus with fewer credits concentrated in the subject matter than a B.S. degree. Academically speaking, they both carry the same value but a B.A. tends to focus more so on the communication aspect meanwhile the B.S. degree centers on the analytics of the subject (in your case engineering).

If you considering pursuing a degree in engineering, I would recommend the B.S. degree as having the classes focused on the "technical and practical aspects of their field."
