Computer science also provides you with algorithmic thinking and systematic problem-solving skills etc. You can use it to work in adjacent fields to engineering as well, depending on what kind of work you enjoy. It can open the door to areas such as product management, performance marketing etc, where you work with people to understand problems, design solutions, and validate them.
