Engineering Is mechanical engineering a good career path in Canada ?

  1. Sep 12, 2010 #1
    I attend canadian university and in civil engineering program(I finished up my 2nd year).

    I am thinking of transferring into mechanical engineering. However, I do not know what kind of career path I can expect in Canada with mechanical engineering. There is not any big company in Canada and canada is not know for any techology. I heard good career path for mechanical, mechtronics or electrical is in US.

    I would have went into mechanical even electrical engineering if I were in US, but I thought it was better to be in civil eng, since I live in Canada. To me there, seems to be more of contruction and development of land than development of techology in Canada.

    Please let hear your opinion, and see if it is worthy transferring into mechanical eng.
    BTW: I am not really enjoying or looking forward with CE at this moment.
