Mechanical + Electrical Double Major

  1. May 25, 2015 #1
    Currently, I'm going into electrical engineering, but I've been considering a double major with mechanical engineering. I'm taking a statics course right now and am really enjoying it. It definitely seems like something in which I'd be interested. If anyone is doing this, studying either major, or has some insight they'd like to contribute, I would like to get opinions on an EE+ME double major.

    How long would that take at your university? It'd take 7 years at mine, vs 4 years for either.... There is very little cross over in courses.

    Have you looked at a mechatronics degree?

    I'm not entirely sure how long it would take. I'm not sure if I could count mechanical engineering classes as electives for electrical engineering and vice versa. Most likely not, since it sounds too easy xD.

    I have not. I'm assuming the curriculum would focus more on control systems in machines and stuff like that, but I could be dead wrong hahaha.
