Electrical or Computer Engineering

  1. Apr 15, 2014 #1

    I know what both electrical and computer engineering entail as majors.

    I just wanted to get some feelers on what some people think would fit me best.

    I've always been really interested in circuitry and taking apart small devices. I don't really have any experience working on computers or doing programming, so I'm not entirely sure on how I feel about those subjects.

    The network/information security field seems pretty interesting, but I am far more interested in learning about different energy systems. Solar panel development is one field of particular interest to me.

    Which one (EE or CpRE) seems to align more with my interest??

    It would seem like electrical engineering suits you best. There is often a lot of overlap at least in the core curricula between EE and CE.

    Sounds like EE is the one for you.
