Environmental Engineering too specific??
I'm 27 years old, completed an English degree a couple years ago, and have always regretted not pursuing an engineering degree. At 18 years old, I was unfocused, etc. I've just been admitted to CU Boulder and plan on rectifying this regret while I still can.
I'm trying to decide between ME and EVEN with a focus on developing communities. The two choices come down to this - I've already earned one degree that doesn't really propel me into a career, so I like the broad applications of ME. Seems like I'd have a chance of landing a job in a range of industries. The EVEN program appeals to me because travel is a major passion of mine, and I'd love to be able to work abroad in developing communities. I know that the govt statistics claim that ME will have slow job growth and EVEN is supposed to skyrocket, but most engineers on this forum seem to be skeptical of this, saying that evironmental engineering degrees are too specific, and it's better to get one of the traditional degrees like Civil or ME.
Anyone care to shed their light on me??
