Hello all, Basically, since my early high school years I've been interested in engineering. My dad was an electrical engineer and really expanded the electrical business that my grand dad, an electrician, started. He and the 3 other E.E.'s that worked for him passed away, and the company fell on hard times. Luckily they maintained business and are still doing okay. My brother is finishing up a degree in EE to work there, but I am not so keen on EE. I would prefer either mechanical or civil, but I do want to work for the company and help out. My question is, what would each of these degrees provide to the company to help in expansion and profitability? Is general contracting a possibility? Despite the family business, I am hardly aware of the engineering/business world and hope that you all can help. Thanks!
