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.

How do I know if the major I would like to choose is truly right for me ?

Although I am pretty confident that this would be my field of interest, I am still unsure about finalizing my decision for a major. I am a high school Junior and want to be a Civil Engineer. I love Physics was nominated by my school for the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute medal, and ended up receiving the award. Besides my love for Physics, I love creating art. I have taught this subject at multiple organizations to kids in grades from first to sixth grade. I also practice Archery in my spare time and recently attended Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky. I would like to find aid in approaching resume writing and job applications so that I can gain more experience and figure out whether my chosen field is truly suited for me.

How transferable is Civil Engineering or Structural Engineering to Mechanical Engineering?

Hi, I plan on interning at a civil engineering/structural engineering firm, but I know I want to study Mechanical Engineering. There aren't any mechanical engineering firms nearby, only civil and structural. Is it worth it to conduct an internship at a civil/structural engineering firm? Will the skills learned be transferable?

How do you make an engineering portfolio?

I know it is always recommended in the engineering field to have your personal projects so that companies can see your hands-on skills and your actual interests in the field. But I have no clue how these portfolios should look like. Is it supposed to be a personal website? Do I need to have a photo album on hand for interviews? Is it just a word document? How on earth do I even start one? How is an engineering portfolio supposed to or recommended to look like? I would really appreciate a general format suggestion, that would help a lot.

How do you create opportunities in school when you have no support?

Hey everyone I've been struggling lately with looking for opportunities to boost my resume as I'm lacking in being involved. I have work and project experience but I would like to dive a little more into R&D. I already have one year of research with a professor but it's not in the field I'm interested in. Our school only has a set amount of research and a set amount of student orgs. Anything else, good luck on getting funds and support. So in the end, students basically have the same resume but in different format and with different timelines. Out of the whole graduating class few get offers bc they all end up looking the same. I understand schools can't accommodate to ALL interests but my school only offers 3 different fields for research and if you're not interested well goodbye. I'd like to change that and create my own opportunities with what we have at school bc I have no money but I just don't see how. Anyone else on the same boat? I'm willing to hear any suggestions, I really need help. I almost forgot to add: I have already talked to faculty for different opportunities. Thanks to my on campus job I have a close relationship with some faculty. Every time I would ask, they would direct me to the same professors doing the same projects.
