Looks like a mechanical engineering curriculum
I chose mechanical engineering as I think it gives me the best base. Unfortunately studies here look a bit different than in US for example. We do not have elective and core classes. Your only option is specialization which you can pick after 3rd year. Here is the list of the courses that my program has (it is my translation so some of the names may look a bit odd). Could you take a look at it and tell me your opinion?
As long as you don't feel that there is too much repeat of your architecture background, and that's what you want to do, then there is no reason not to.
Is there an option for a graduate degree instead of a second bachelors degree? (You would probably have to pick up several classes to fill prerequisites - that would be the down side.)
Whatever degree you end up with, there will be a lot of "on the job" learning - my original degree was in mechanical engineering back in the day when you used punch cards and Fortran IV for programming (and mechanical engineers got a single two credit hour class in "programming"). But, by the time I left industry I was writing control system software in C.
