I have a background as a automotive technician for over a decade. I would like to move into a career that is less stressful on my body and provides a higher ceiling for pay. I am interested in computers with hobbiest knowledge of the how's and why's they work. I have professional experience in the auto motive field. My question is would my automotive technician experience really benefit me in my ME studies and future work or is their a better future in the computer engineering field ?
