Should I be mad at myself for even thinking of switching from a mechanical engineering major to a math major?

I've decided that I want to work in the finance field in the future, and have heard that math majors are highly prized in that field. However, whenever I look at the average salaries of degrees, engineering majors are at the top of the list and math majors seem to often not even make the cut.

Should I forget about ever switching to mathematics? I'm a first year student, so it's not like I've gone too far.

If you don't like engineering, you'll be worse off as an engineer making money than as a mathematician who isn't. Even if you do like engineering, the reality of spending every day taking the same tired solutions, tweaking them, and reporting them so that someone else can sell the final product and get rich from it, can really get to you.

Just find that magical intersection of things you really enjoy doing and things that make a living wage, and you're golden.

Do applied math with an emphasis in economics.

this is just a meme, its really fucking hard to get a real finance job as a math major, and quant positions only want experienced phds

Basically this. If you want to be a quant, then you can get a math/physics/engineering PhD it really doesn't matter, but you have to have a graduate degree and especially a research track record.
