>tfw you fell for the engineering meme
>tfw its too late to switch to finance or something biz related
I'm a sophomore and too deep into this shit.
I build economic models on certain assets. Our models are technical enough that they need an engineer's understanding to build/understand them, and a background in finance is not enough to do the job.
I'm gonna assume that you are at an OK school. That means that basically you and your degree will make you a god among men by the time you are 35. Even in finance, like the other guy said. But you better believe that you are going to have to work to get there. One typical way is to get an engineering type job in a largish company and then just keep pushing towards the business side of things. Literally all the engineers I know progressed to being business critical managers 10 years out from their degree. And all are living the life.
You are an idiot.
Look at job positions requirements and alot of the ones for finance/banking say they want someone with a quantitative degree that has 3.5+ GPA.
The reason is that it is a whole lot harder to teach a business guy all the math quickly than it is to teach a math guy all the finance they need for the job quickly.
I know electrical, civil and mechanical engineers that work in the financial world. Also a a physics and a comp sci.
Okay. I'm going to say this as nicely as possibly. If you cannot make your Texas A&M engineering degree work well for you in life then, as someone else said, you, sir, are an idiot.
You are a lucky son of a bitch, and you need to go out there and fuck the world with your engineering powers.
This desu. I went there and I would say about half the engineers don't know what they are doing, but I guess that would be true for most majors.
Don't be in that half anon and figure it out. Nobody is going to hand you a high paying job. You will have to earn it.
