What is it /biz/?
Mech, EE, Comp?

BSME, MSAE master race reporting in. Master's is the new Bachelor's desu
No speak of chemical, computer or civil
Which I thought these would be the standard go to engineering degrees (i don't know much about engineering and I'm kind of looking in to different degree options)

I know this is /biz/ where money is king but there's something to be said for doing what you're actually interested in.
Alternatively I'd recommend studying (even if not for a major) something you can do on the side like EE/CS. If you enjoy what you do it's an interesting hobby, and if you end up with something cool you can sell it.

How come nobody has talked about computer yet? Is it an 'eh' engineering degree? I suspect software is just low tier computer and the individual would be limited to being a code writer?
CompE is somewhere in between EE and CS. CS majors are making bank these days, haven't you heard?
I'm EE myself, wouldn't recommend to everyone. Have ME friends. BioMech is the hot meme these days. Civil is boring as hell. ChemE I don't know much about, but it's hard and you can make bank.
Where I study it's one of the more oversaturated fields, this year the uni took in 1000 new ME students, even more then they could teach.
It doesn't really matter tho, it really matters what minors and masters you take. ME with a programming or automation related master is godlike imo.
My passion is machine learning/computational linguistics type stuff but I'm worried about being able to find a career in the field. All I see is a few research positions. Will AI really be as necessary in the future as people are hoping? Should I just go with EE instead?
Self driving cars, google glasses, automation in general, I think we're going towards a century of AI. Only thing slowing this down is that we almost reached the limit of smallest transistor possible.
Civil has been pretty good to me, but I didn't go into design. I went into construction management. More stress for sure, but I'm making more than any civil design engineer that doesn't own his own firm.
I'm currently doing a EE degree and i'm thinking in double majoring in Software engineering or computer science?
Does this sound like a good plan? All I want to do is make robots and shit
Software Engineering seems like something that is growing in demand bigtime and it isnt something that can really be replaced by H1B or third world code monkeys
Software Engineering requires understanding the entire life cycle of software from beginning to end. This is difficult for a chinaman or an indian to do as generally speaking, english is a secondary language and the cultural as well as body language barrier really makes them terrible at most of the software engineering process.
White people will always be better coders, better project managers, and better communicators than any H1B and for today's complex application projects, programming skill seems to be at the very bottom of the list of important skills someone needs to be successful

It depends what country you're in. EE is not only really interesting and hard it's also incredibly broad. It's also essentially the only engineering career where you don't need to be chartered. That being said there's no predicted job growth in America. Luckily I'm in Europe.
Civil gets a bad rep but you have to be incompetent to not get a job after. It's also extremely broad in that there are a lot of roles that engineers go into in the construction sector.

BS in aero. probably going to get masters in systems eng after 3-4 years of work
While getting a job was difficult and will always be for an aero. (not saying you wont get one, but the ones you want are competitive so you have to be top notch)
you have to have the passion for A&D to study the topic. or else you will be winded and blown away

Right now I am still just starting college, but I have a little plan to becone a pharmacist with as little debt as possible.
Right now I am piggybacking off my fajah's Hazelwood Act, and I plan to do something the Army does. They pay x years for your pharmacy school and college and you work y amount of years for them in exchange. The base pay for joining this way is 90k plus 20k on top of that for working for them, not including any military benifits.
110k right out of school is pretty chill way to start out, if you ask me, even though I will have to sacrifice my nonexistent social life to study enough to get a phd.
Software Engineering is p. good
Lot of demand for it, like even if you dont have great greats but got a bachelors and you throw your app up somewhere you will get calls/emails from bunch of people looking to setup an interview
I warn you, it's not exactly easy
"Running circles around (competitor) is an idiom that means you're way better and can show off way better than your competition.
If you code circles around pajeet you're able to prove far more impressive.
generally speaking, it's the most general of the engineering disciplines. for my BSME, I had to take classes in EE, CivE, and very basic chemistry and computer programming. However, I never saw civil or electrical engineers in my thermodynamics or fluid dynamics classes. MEs can go work in oil fields, building construction, robotics, manufacturing, aeronautics (probably the most $$$ of any area of expertise), materials science, control systems, machine logic, etc....
If you ever see a job posting for "an engineer," 7/10 they'll hire a mechanical engineer. If you ever work as an engineer for any sort of non-specialized company - construction, utilities, manufacturing, industrial conglomerate - 7/10 your boss (and your boss's boss) will be an ME.
This isn't to say that ME's make the most money. Most of the stats I see (from colleges, so probably a little biases) place ME starting salaries as average to below average among the engineering disciplines. I suppose that's the bargain we make to become jack of all trades, masters of none (at least at the undergraduate level).
I thought it would be obvious what computer engineering is. You have software which everybody has a rough understanding and you have computer which has more to do with the hardware.
Indeed. People see a wall without accounting for the fact that the next paradigm of computation isn't visible yet. Just wait, when we hash out the multitude of future computing methods, life will change faster than ever before and ever imagined. Quantum computing, photon computing, and biological engineering are the most obvious. But there are other classifications.
