So I am 21 years old, I only recently found out that I am interested in electrical engineering. I live in NYC and am heading into cuny city tech for my first semester. E.E is a very broad field and I think that going into power engineering would be a good career move because it cannot be outsourced or replaced by automation. Over here con-ed is the main distributor for power and I am looking to work for them in the future. So my questions are: does power engineering Have better job security than other e.e disciplines(electrical design and drafting, semiconductors, telecom, signals processing, hardware design, etc.)? Also, I heard con-ed is discriminatory and will promote lesser qualified cronies, is that true? Since NYC has such a large job market, how much competition is there for jobs in power engineering? Finally, I have been in NYC for most of my life, life here is getting pretty unaffordable, what other states have demand for power engineers besides for ny? Sorry if this was a long read, phew!
