Okay, so I'm a current Computer Engineer (planned to minor in Business Management as well) but I went to the career fair at my school (RPI) and realized that most of the Computer Engineer jobs that were being offered there were for Software Engineering, which I do not really want to do for the rest of my life. I thought CpE was a mix of EE and CS, but if it'll mostly get my jobs where I have to program all day, I don't really think I want one.
I enjoy working in groups and I love computers or any new technology in general, especially external hard drives, Ipods, cell phones, etc.
I'm currently deciding between Electrical Engineering, staying in Comp Engineering, going for IT with a focus on Computer Hardware, or something else.
I'm still not completely sure what IT does, but my friends who are in it said it's the social side of Comp Sci, so if that includes working in groups or helping people then I think it would be a great option. However, I was wondering if a minor in IT helps much over a Business Management minor.
I'm not really good at Comp Sci 1, which is supposed to be an easy course, so I was considering just doing electrical engineering too, but I still don't know if that's a good idea either because I don't have a great understanding of what they do.
Also, I would like to work in a city of some sort like New York City, LA, maybe Boston, etc. I just don't want to sit in front of a computer writing code for the rest of my life, using HTML is fun but C++ is just not something I'd like to do for my whole life
