Engineering Electrical or Mechanical Engineering?

  1. Aug 25, 2011 #1
    Hello people of the forum. This is my first time posting and in advance thanks for your answers.

    I Like engineering, math and especially physics. At the moment im in EE becouse I think it have a lot physics and I guess it have to do a lot with power generation and new technologies.

    But Mechanical Engineering seems awesome to with all that thermodynamics and energy. There is no nuclear industry in my country but when it comes to nuclear power who has more to do a ME or EE?

    In overall How you really choose a Branch of Engineering? I also like computers and robotics wich i guess it falls in EE.

    How you really choose between this two babies? My university dont offers double major and Physics degree its not an option.

    Thanks for the forum.

    If you don't mind to answer, wich country do you live?

    That might give a hint for some people on here!

    Honestly, from my experience of working at a plant. Both are equally as important.

    The real question is, What are you most interested in?

    If you love Thermodynamics and fluid flow, then ME.

    I really dont know the answer to this question. I find them both interesting.

    But always wanted to know what really was going on inside the computer wich i guess is more electrical.
