I’m waiting for the first poster to say something along the lines of “The only decent major to have in college is engineering.”
C’mon I know you’re out there.
With off-shoring, H1-B Visas and sending our technical projects to China/India/Singapore where the labor is cheaper - the days of the "Engineer" are pretty much gone. I can't say I'd recommend an engineering degree to anyone.
If I had been smart, I'd have pursued a degree in Healthcare Administration. I'd have a much higher salary, job security and expanded opportunties. Plus, no Theoretical Physics, Differential Equations, Advanced Calculus, Number Theory, Thermo/Dynamics/Statics, Materials Science, Antenna theory - the classwork would have been exponentially easier.
The only major worth having in our current economy is any major that requires a ton of math.
I’m talking Diff Eq, Statistics, Calculus, Linear Algebra, and their applications.
Otherwise you’re just filling your head with mush.
