Best degree to go into systems engineering?

  1. Mar 27, 2015 #1
    I am an engineering student at McMaster University who is interested in going into systems engineering. Unfortunately, our school does not offer this as a major. However, the mechatronics curriculum has a lot of systems classes in it, so I was thinking of taking that. The problem is, I've heard mechatronics is too broad of a degree and that no employers know what it is, so finding a job can be difficult.

    Because of this, would it be better to go into electrical engineering if i wanted to work in systems engineering? The program only has you take a couple courses in this subject, but I suppose I could always go to graduate school to learn more. Thanks for any advice! Have a good day.
