Should I switch from Computer science/Engineering to Civil Engineering or Accounting?

<p>I recently graduated with an AA degree and transferred to a university as a Computer science/Engineering student, when i met with the adviser she told me right now the CS and CE classes are the same for now till i get into the higher classes. Im taking Programming right now and I hate it, its not something i want to do for the rest of my life, I cant program that well. Im probably the worst in class.</p>

<p>Im still in Calc 1, Logic Design, and Foundations of Comp sci. I dont want to taste any more time and money. I still have to take all the way up to Calc 3, and PHY 2 if i sitck with engineering, btw im 20 and i wanna be done by 23-24 </p>

<p>My question is that should i get into Civil since its no programming and its indoors and outdoors kinda field, or should i get into Accounting (one of my family members is in accounting, he told me its easier and much relaxing)</p>

<p>Please help me as I hate this semester and looking to make a switch next semester in Fall.</p>

<p>My father is in accounting and it has been miserable for him. It is every repetitive and it wears on you after a decade or so. He even took a pay cut to do something different. An elite CPA might be tolerable but everything else gets boring.
Civil engineering could be a rough feild until the economy turns around.
If you hate programming then you could switch to mechanical engineering or even chemical. These could be better options for you in the feild of engineering.</p>

<p>I think you need to sit down and do some heavy research into other options and see what appeals to you. Right now, it just looks like CSE isn't working out and you want to jump to some random other major that will hopefully be better.</p>

<p>Out of the classes you've taken so far, have there been any classes that really interested you? What sorts of topics/subjects sound cool to you?</p>

<p>My son graduated with BS Engineering Physics 4/2011, after 75 resumes, cover letters, profiles for major engineering firms, the only interest expressed for his future was the oil industry. Mainly due to his work with Engineers without Borders (5 yrs) in South East Asia and S.America , his expertise was in the field, harsh environments and the third world. Bottom line, there is a lot of talk with engineering firms ( 30K + employees), many rotational programs, slick web sites, sharp video's, request for new engineers everywhere, and bottom line no jobs. Be very careful, pick wisely, even with a good GPA, EITaccreditation, and experience, it is still a tough market.</p>

<p>Ive always had an interest in Aviation. Being a pilot and all is so cool to me and I love that but its really expensive and to get a job in the Airline industry its required to have a BA just to show that im into that, I also love Sports, Hockey in general. so idk.</p>

<p>I have less time only this semester to decide..</p>

<p>Major in Aerospace Engineering and get your pilots license then try for a job as pilot or design planes either way could be a win-win</p>

<p>You are in such entry level classes it is really too early to say what you like or not. What is to stop you from thinking accounting is just as awful once you try it? Many people hate it, and some personality types that like it may not be you (the ones I know are very anal retentive, but maybe that's not fair.) The problem with programming is that is is usually a byproduct of studying computer science, not the core. So it's too bad that your school doesn't integrate the study. Also, I wonder how your math is, but you are only in calculus. So how do you know you will like Civil? I think the better jobs are going to be in CS. I wonder why you can't get through a programming class, mostly. Just keep in mind that there is always going to be a class or teacher you don't like and that you just need to get through it and move on. Most college classes won't have a lot to do with what you actually do for a job. It is just preparation. Maybe an apptitude test will help you.</p>

<p>Not every civil engineer gets to go outside. You are obviously just don't enjoy an entry level class. Why not take the time and learn what each major does and decide what you love and is capable of studying.</p>
