I attended a school that labeled themselves as an 'engineering' school. Now keeping in mind that I started college almost 20 years ago, I can shed some light on my experiences. I went through a Computer Engineering program which had a measurable overlap (in curriculum) with the Electrical Engineering program at the same school. The hardware portion of my studies involved many upper-level EE courses. All that being said, I feel that either major would have allowed me to be successful in an EE-focused career (if my interest had been in that field).
Matthew recommends the following next steps:
- Compare and contrast the EE-related courses amongst the Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering (or equivalent) curriculums. This will hopefully give you a better idea of some options if you're looking for majors outside of Electrical Engineering itself.
