I have nothing to add beyond Freyster's links but a bit of advice:

If you're trying to decide a major based solely on salary, you might not like the results. Also note that most salary reports don't include potential perks/bonus structures. This varies a lot more by company than by discipline. Yes, you can probably command a salary that's a bit higher, but if you do not enjoy what you are doing it very well might not be worth it in the long run.

Another bit - it is very common for someone with a degree in one engineering field to work in another. I hold undergraduate degrees in Mechanical and Materials Engineering, but my job title is "Consultant Engineer". A number of my colleagues hold degrees in Chemical, Civil, Industrial, Electrical, etc. - and we all started at more or less the same pay (adjusted for hiring date/inflation, of course).
