I am currently a high school sophmore in the united states and am very involved in robotics, math, science, and programming in my school. Both my parents have computer science masters, while my dad has an electrical engineering degree as well and my mother has a mathematics degree as well. I am currently torn between two majors, engineering and medicine. My mother wishes for me to go into medicine while my father wishes for me to do whatever i wish, except mechanical engineering (he thinks there is no opportunity in that field these days) bottom line is... i want to decide what to focus my efforts on in my high school years so as to improve my chances in excelling in which field i choose. What is your opinion on the future of engineering and the related sciences, and on medicine???
