Computer or Electrical Engineering

  1. Feb 26, 2013 #1
    Hi everyone I have a tough choice I have to make, I still have time, but I've been thinking about it for a while now. I'm currently in my second semester at a local university. I live near Detroit and my life dream has been working for an automotive company (or at least in the automotive industry). I was wondering, which engineering disciple will give me a better chance to achieve my dream. I was thinking electrical because of the efforts to go to electric power instead of gas, but I would like some input.

    Thank you.

    wouldn't mechanical be the natural choice?

    Yes, but I prefer one of these two to mechanical. (Basically, the last on my list)

    both are very good, but i guess electrical would be more fitting although CS is taking over the world. you cant really lose with any of them really. EE is very broad you can work anywhere really. So i would pick that if you want to work with automotives. How about EE and a Masters in Mechatronics?

    I was thinking of something like that, but I would rather get a bachelor's first and re-coop some money before I put more money into school.
