Right now im a Mechanical Engineering student(3rd year of a 5 year program) and it seems that each time i get amped up for my career possibilities, i then come home and get down because i keep asking myself have i made the right decision, am i gonna be miserable??? Like my other posts, it seems like im interested in Civil Engineering but im downright scared of that profession right now, there is no job security and there's just so much instability involving it. Im a witness of how civil engineering has been tored down into pieces, my dad who's a 20 year man as a construction engineer has been unemployed for almost two year now with no signs of getting back into the field as he's now gone with a different career path. Why do i worry so much about this??? there's various topics in Mech Eng. that im interested like energy conversion, energy efficiency, hvac, building systems, renewables etc. the list goes. But then i get down thinking what if i had the chance to be a City Engineer or something and be involved in some satisfying large scale project. I started school as an EE student, then i was in the decision between Civil/Mech Engineering and looked at the economic situation i decided Mech avoiding Civil even though im interested. The Civil Engineering academic counselor suggested that i do a double major as the school permits it now. It seems like i make posts here asking about different career choices not being civil engineering that relate to it so i can satisfy my little personal itch. Any suggestions are welcome, i know engineering is for me really i love the courses but i keep having a mind war about this to be honest. Sometimes i think of going to a shrink. My friends already think im crazy and have no idea what i want in life.
