    If one is a good engineer, one can find a good career in either discipline.




    Take a look at the societies in IEEE

    What interests does one have in electrical engineering?

    Power systems and components (Power electronics), e.g. electrical generators, motors, T&D systems, relaying, switches
    Instrumentation & Measurement Electronics, meters and measuring devices
    Communications - Radio/Analogy or Digital
    Control Theory & Systems
    Dielectrics & Insulators
    Lasers & Electro-Optics
    Computer & Microelectronic
    Plasma Sciences & Engineering
    Robotics & Automation
    Ultrasonics & Ferroelectrics
    Electric Vehicles

    Or one could do a double major.
