Hi I just finished high school and want to study electrical engineering in college. My dream is to build a virtual reality machine of my own. Any advice on which area of electrical engineering that I should specialise?

You should get good experience with displays, robotics, and maybe some kind of ergonomics or biomechanics, I would think.
