Engineering + Earth Science?

  1. Aug 20, 2011 #1
    Hello, I'm a college student interested in the field of engineering. So it's the time of the year again to select courses, and I happened to come across an Earth Science class that seemed interesting. However, I also don't want to waste my time and effort in some class that isn't too useful to my field, which is engineering (hasn't decided which engineering, but more towards non-bio e or chem-e, kinda inclined towards either mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or engineering sciences), and I was wondering whether Earth science is related to the field of my interest.
    P.S.: Would earth Science be tied to alternative energy or robotics?

    no earth science would be a waste of time for you. Now if you had to pick earth science from a selection of electives then I would say go for it, but don't take extra classes that don't involve your major.........unless you have a lot of time to kill.

    from what i've seen earth science would benefit electrical or mechanical programs zero percent.
