Hello, Brandon.

I think you can find your passion through the internship program. Review the job descriptions, flexibility of the working hours and responsibilities from the job listing for each engineering field and review the Expected Salary Potential. I have an Electrical Engineering Degree with an MBA in Management in Information System but I have started my career in the Telecommunication field which has a lot of potential. The Computer Science field has a lot of jobs opening and you can find jobs in many cities. You should look into which industry is more interesting to you and job responsibilities along with the career advancement as well. Good luck!

I also provided the link to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Website which has a great information for each engineering field. You will be able to find the Job Summary, Payscale, Work Environment, etc. from this website to help you determine which engineering field would fit you better. Please check out the link below for more details. You can also search for other career fields as well.

Richard’s Answer

It depends on what part of your interest, interests you more. Do you enjoy the problems solving part more? Or the infrastructure? All of the engineering disciplines require some level of problem solving. However, Computer Science (Software Engineering) is extremely oriented around breaking down problems into smaller parts to solve them. If this is the part you like then Programming is for you. If infrastructure is what you enjoy then either Civic or Mechanical is for you.

I would suggest learning more about all three and then after you determine which discipline is of greater interest, then you can look within those at possible specialties in that field.
