I'm interested in EE, but I'm stuck between ME and EE. I hear that you can't go wrong with either one, but I've only seen what it's like to be a MechE so far. What do EE's do once they graduate? What EE industries are there? I definitely have an interest in electronics. But, I also think working in the aerospace industry would be cool as hell as well. Anyone here a professional that can help me out?
There are plenty of opportunities in the aerospace industry for EE's. I don't know any personally, but I think you'll be fine with either. If you like EE better though, I'd go that route. I'm a ME and am very impressed with EE's can do. One electrics course was enough for me.
I'm like you, OP.
Started in EE, then switched to Mechatronics.
Am taking a bunch of mechanical shit now. Honestly, all I'm really learning so far are basic manufacturing shit.
It's not bad, I guess, but I miss the EE side. Then again, EE is fucking hard.
Am thinking about just doubling in EE and ME.
I've heard automation is the new big thing now...
Maybe I should have just majored in that and EE.
I don't know.
Its hard to find a job in this field without needed exp
My brother graduated with an EE. He's been doing circuit design stuff for most of his career. Mostly ASIC's originally, now at a company working on tools to help customers use his employer's FPGA products.
However, pretty much anything that runs off electricity is an appropriate field for an EE, and a lot of EE's I meet have been pretty decent coders too..
