Can't decide Mechanical vs Electrical Engineering

  1. Nov 7, 2015 #1
    I am equally interested in both topics, but I am having trouble making up my mind as to which one to pick. Anyone here wish they did one or picked the other? Future prospects? I like MechE topics such as thermodynamics, FEA, CFD, materials etc, but I also like ElecE topics such as microcontrollers and programming. I potentially want to go into software (programming) in the future, so I am leaning towards EE because its a little more relevant, I guess. Could MEs do that too?

    Why not study computer science if you want to go into software?
