I just finished my first semester in college, and I'm unsure on what engineering path to take. It took me a while to decide I want to do engineering, but I am somewhat convinced it's the right path for me, but now I'm not sure what type of engineering to do. Everyone says to keep taking courses and your interests will become apparent to you by sophomore year. However, I am not sure where my interests lie, and would rather know what I want to do now, or at least have some sort of plan. I tried looking at the major breakdown for each of the engineering majors offered in my school and tried to get the syllabus of future courses I would need to take in the major -- but the courses don't have precise specifications, but rather vague general descriptions of what the course material is about. Also to be on track with major requirements I need to take certain classes next semester, but that amendment is dependent on my tentative major. I'm not completely clueless though -- I think I can safely say I probably won't pursue Civil Engineering or CS/Electrical/ Computer Engineering. In particular, I'm conflicted among mechanical and chemical engineering. So if you or anyone you know were unsure on what major, what helped you decide?
