What to study to become an inventor?

  1. Sep 13, 2015 #1
    I'm going to be in year 12 next year, and being an inventor was always my dream.
    I think robotics are a good medium to invent with, and I want to be able to design a whole robot on my own if I need to. I want to have the ability to design the mechanics, do the programming, and design the electronics.

    So what should I study at university?

    "Jack of all trades?" Mechanical engineering.

    Or engineering physics. I think that's probably the most jack of all trades engineering discipline.
