I'm a sophomore in Computer Engineering, so I haven't begun my specialized courses very much. Thing is, I'm worried about market saturation and I'm more interested in software development (as I figure microprocessors really come down on Electrical Engineers more than computer engineers). I'm intending to start my internships this summer, but I'm considering jumping ship to biomedical engineering and just going after learning programming and software myself. Is this feasible?

My dream job is neuroprosthetics R&D

If there's a relevant research department at your university, schedule an appointment with someone immediately.

Not much advice /biz/ can really offer.

I was hoping there were some biomed engineers around. I've happened to meet one "in the wild" so to speak; he was a retired hospital worker that dealt with the machinery and all that.

If you're going into software development/software engineering... all you need to do is make sure you're skill is on par with the top 5% of your class. Companies are hungry for software engineers right now. The problem is, not many of them are worthy of a six figure salary. You need to insure that you are. If you don't, your degree will be worth less to you.

Where can a nigger get a pizza like that outside of Chicago? Deep dish in MA is limited to UNOS and I'd rather hang myself.

I've been looking myself, but I live in the South.

It has higher projected market growth.
>>973218
Gotcha, just be better than everyone else and it should be fine. Come to think of it, that applies for a lot of stuff.

Software development is definitely a skill you can learn on your own if you have the right aptitude, especially if you can pick up another engineering discipline instead. This is coming from a EE who did a lot of programming (and is now in business school).

>I'm worried about market saturation

The market may be saturated with programmers, perhaps people with CS degrees.

The market is not saturated with good programmers with CS degrees. I have interviewed dozens, if not hundreds of people. The majority of programmers can barely program. Only a few know what they're talking about. That takes work. Most people just want do the minimum.

I'd never really considered that possibility.
