Difference between Mechanical and Electrical engineer?

  1. Mar 13, 2012 #1
    Hey I want to study Engineering in college, but I'm not sure which field to go into.. Can you list some differences between the two, such as strengths needed, what each type does, etc...

    This is VERY basic research you can easily do yourself with a search on the internet. I recommend you start there, especially since the two degrees have many obvious differences that with a mere 5 minutes of effort you can find yourself.

    I recommend that you come back once you have done this, and we will be happy to answer your specific questions.
