Hello everyone! I've been looking around and I was considering going for Nuclear Engineering at NC State recently, but I decided against it after much consideration. Now, while it seems like a solid field to go into I prefer the flexibility of location that comes with an Electrical Engineering degree. I also enjoy making Tesla Coils, Marx generators, Van de Graaff generators, and so on. So it seems obvious, at least to me, that I belong on the electrical side of things. Now, I have two majors I need to decide between and I want your input concerning both! Also, I am turning 28 this summer, if that matters. Now, this is the link to their EE 8 semester plan. This is the link to their ECET 8 semester plan. My questions are, which route do you believe is the best in todays job market? Would a technology degree with a focus on electronics be on even employability footing as the EE degree? I noticed the EE degree has a much heavier focus on mathematics, which I assume is a basic difference between any EE and EET degree as EE is more focused on theory. The ECET degree is designed to lead me down a career path with a heavy focus on computers such as: System Administrator Network Specialist System Engineer Applications Engineer Software Engineer Information Technologist Technical and Computer Sales Representative Those jobs strike me as jobs requiring a heavy amount of programming. I know a bit of programming but I would never call myself a programmer. So I am stuck. Both are equally interesting to me and I have roughly 2 years to decide. I am going to a community college currently taking some electronics classes, physics, calculus, chemistry, and some other general ed classes to prepare for whichever path I take. It also helps that I can afford CC classes without taking out any student loans and a good portion of these classes are transferable. Also, I will add this, with either degree I can get my PE. For the EE degree, I can test for it straight out of college and with the ECET degree I can test for it after I have a bit of experience. Oh, I forgot to add, I have experience doing electrical wiring and working with electronics but I do not have any certifications, not yet. So with either degree I will be graduating with experience relating to large generators, wiring, electronics, motors, engine maintenance, troubleshooting and repairing an air compressor, installing PLCs, programming PLCs, and so on. Given the experience I have, it almost makes me think I am more suited for the EE degree, but I want to hear any and all opinions first!
