No problem, I'd encourage you to go talk to some people who are engineers, your school most likely has some contact with some of it's graduates. Most will tell you that very little of what you learn in school as an under grad will apply to the real world. Getting the engineering degree mainly demonstrates to an employer that you have the skills to learn how to be a real engineer from other engineers. It's kind of like med school, getting through med school doesn't make you a doctor, it's getting through the internship followed by the residence that teaches you what you need to know to be a doctor. Good luck, some of the classes are tough, but doing well in them is very rewarding in and of itself.
