Kinda confused about my major ?

Kinda confused about my major Hello, I have been accepted to both electrical engineering and software engineering. Ngl, I chose electrical engineering because I am very interested in making money and starting my own business (although I am not sure if I will be able to do so in this lifetime). After going through the BLIND app, I am a little confused because their TCs have made me blind. Having $600k-700k in their early thirties is kind of crazy. I chose electrical engineering because I genuinely enjoy mathematics, and I was the highest scorer in my high school, ranking 1/2500 (worth noting that my high school is regarded as the best school in my country's curriculum), so I just wanted to let you know that I am extremely hardworking! This summer I have been grinding Python and am now working on Python data structure! Anyway, I have the option to change my major. Can anyone tell me about the current job market? Mcgill also offers co-ops in Swe, and there are tech fairs for other engineering departments. And I have heard that electrical will be the next CSE/SWE because of VLSI projects? It is turning into a $10 billion project or something. Furthermore, digital integrated circuit engineers are well compensated (as seen on Indeed). Or should I take swe as my Minor? I know I sound strange and greedy, but I want to make my own money.

What other "Branches" of the Electrical Career should I know?

I know there are powerlines and powerboxes, however, should there be other 'branches' of the electrical field that I should know about? Electrical with vehicles, or is that still part of the auto industry? Avionics have their seperate electrical field or don't?
