Antonio’s Answer

Hi Colson,

All three of these options can create many possibles for work.

In regards to Music & Engineering, some careers you can look into is running sound for live performances, or possibly becoming a recording engineer at a music recording studio.

In regards to Music & Art, maybe you can look into graphic design for musicians, bands, or other musical projects. Fivver is a website where you can sign up to get paid to work on projects like this.

The above ideas are only a fraction of what's possible for you, so reach for the sky and don't limit yourself. Continue asking questions to people who are doing what you're interested in, and you can discover some valuable information.

I hope that this helps!
Thank you comment icon Thank you, this is really helpful. Colson

Glenn S.’s Answer

I agree that you can have a career and a hobby. Or you can find ways to combine them. Working as a design engineer, you can focus on the design of music equipment. This can be instruments, studio equipment, or the design of music studios. Since you enjoy engineering and drawing, Industrial design with a technical background can be good. Many industrial designers just want what they want, but good industrial designers can envision how to make what they want. I have also know MEs who worked on products that also did the Industrial design, this is often for smaller companies.

Tessa’s Answer

I agree with everything mentioned here by the previous answerer! In addition to this, a degree in any of these areas with an additional minor or dual major in business (if you're interested) would be a great way to go. There are many amazing skills to learn in these areas that cross with strategic business skills that can help make them into wonderful careers.

Tricia’s Answer

I was considering several majors besides engineering. My uncle pointed out that I could always write on the side (he did-even published a novel) and pay my bills from engineering, but it would be impossible to write full-time and do engineering on the side. Glad I picked majoring in engineering and writing on the side; I get to separate work and pleasure.
