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 advice can you give me about my future career in Industrial Electronics?

I have a few questions about the Industrial engineering field, more specifically Industrial Electronics. Given the extensive process to even get certified or a degree, I'm curious as to the learning curve of the work? Are there any particular skills that I should become acquainted with before entering the work field? And are there any commonly open positions regarding this profession? Is it something I would easily be able to apply for a job in, or would it take a longer time with less likelihood of getting in than most other jobs?

Going down the right track ?

Hey there, I'm going to study electrical engineering at a top university abroad (t30) and plan to take a minor in applied AI in my second year. So for this, I have started working on Python, Java, and C++ (as I have already completed C back in high school) and plan to work on VHDL afterwards for digital hardware design and test engineering. I'm sure there are so many potential electrical engineers in this group who know if I'm going down the right track. TIA!

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?

How can I find and communicate with an engineer for an interview for my high school?

I am looking for someone to interview for my high school engineering academy. I’m interested in mechanical, electrical, and engineering physics but I am happy to interview any engineer. The interview would be online and we could discuss the time that works best for you. If anyone could give me advice on a number to call or if someone volunteers it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading my post and have a great day.

What major should I go for ?

I have always been interested in mathematics and physics. After graduating from 12th grade, I have discovered that I'm really good at mathematics, though I used to get over 95% in physics, chemistry, and mathematics. I know getting a good score isn't everything in a career; there are so many skills that are required to have a top-notch career. Now I am planning to do my major in electrical engineering or software engineering. As I like grinding mathematics more, will it be a wise decision to major in electrical engineering? I really want to do a startup. Will it be a wise decision to major in electrical engineering, having the passion to do the startup and maintaining academics perfectly?  One thing I would like to say, I'm going to move to Montreal and planning to do my MBA afterwards.
