I recently switched my major from CIS to EE, and I feel like I made a mistake because everyone says CIS is where it's at - in terms of jobs and just the general landscape of the world. Would love to hear from EE majors :)


I'm in MEAM so I got the opinion of my friend in EE:

"I agree that there are many more high paying jobs in engineering available for people with a CIS skillset, however being an EE major does not exclude you from getting these jobs or interviews if you have the skills required (you'll probably have to teach yourself tho). I've found that people view EE as more rigorous than CIS so it will actually differentiate you since there are so few people doing EE. That being said, just study what you want to study and you'll end up in a job/career/classes that you'll find most worthwhile."
