systems or electrical/electronics engineer?
« on: July 19, 2009, 09:05:31 PM »
so I'm entering college this year with 1.5 years... almost an associates degree... and I was wondering what my major should be a systems engineer or electrical engineer?
one reason I like systems engineer is because it gives me ability in a vast range of work... and I have some inteerest in biochemical engineering....
my english teacher once said, "dont talk about what you dont know in public...."

so I replied the truth, " Exactly why I dont ever talk about English."

I did Systems Engineering as an elective subject within my BEng(Electrical & Electronics). From what I see (and learnt), Sys Eng is a subset of Project Management. Its about managing the design of a system. As such, it is not a technical subject. Its more like designing a project on paper, and then give the paper to someone else who does the technical work.

On the other hand, Electrical Eng would of course, be very technical. But technical knowledge without good management is almost useless.

So I guess you should choose the one that will be of more benefit to what your career might be. If you want to do more management works, then probably do Sys Eng. If you want more  technical stuff, do Elec Eng.

But I think System Engineers would be able to get a job easier than EE Engineers. There's so many EE Eng already, but not much Sys Eng. And large companies doing large projects would definitely need Sys Engs.

But this is my opinion, not a fact.

Choose wisely  ;D

I might go for a double major being I already have 1.5 years then I can get out in like 4.5 years (i think)
with two degrees

I think a double degree would be good, the only down side is the heavier work load ;D
