What are the benefits of this career (particularly in comparison to hardware/RF engineering career)? I understand that engineers working in National (edit: provisional. I meant those government ones) power companies are paid good and the jobs are more stable/secure. Currently, I am interested in computer engineering because there are more opportunities. Unlike power engineering, you have more options. Looking at salary, security, opportunities, and future, how power engineering jobs (i.e. job in a national power company) are compared to other kind of computer engineering jobs?
