Mechanical or Electronics?

  1. Jul 26, 2015 #1
    So I have to choose between mechanical, Electronics and Electrical engineering.

    I want a job which has a lot of research to do rather than just designing or improving a product, as of now I think electronics is better suited for me, but I am having second thoughts. I am going crazy over this!

    I want to invent something and start a company! Electronics seems better for that.

    But I am confused!

    You don't need to choose.
    You will most likely have better ideas for commercial products if you can use a broad field of knowledge.

    If you go for mechanical engineering at some stage you'll get covered in hot, dirty oil, if you go for electronics you'll strain your eyesight looking at tiny things, take your choice.
