well i'm currently a student at SFSU, junior standing in college and sophomore standing in the engineering program. i originally wanted to do civil engineering since i heard it's easier because everything is static. but next semester, when i will begin my emphasis (upper division), i need to decided between mechanical engineering and civil engineering. i figured i'd throw this on the table and see what you guys think. i've had experience with cars and working with my hands. i've had no experience with construction or anything like that. but based off of my interests of cars, i'm not sure if this is a good enough reason to devote myself to a difficult major, which is also another reason why i want to do it. here's my pros and cons of doing mechanical engineering, excuse me if i'm misinformed about some of this, but here it goes: pros: -seems easier to get a job -more challenging (i think) -easier to get a job when finished -more job offerings -more relevant to what i've been doing -more to come cons: -harder -material is more science than design, more dry -focuses mainly on small objects as opposed to a big picture -more to come anyways, i'd appreciate any feedback. thanks ahead of time.
