My school offers programs in both Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. Of course I would have an easier time getting a job if I did computer science, but I think that electrical engineering would be more interesting to me. Can you be a software developer with an Electrical Engineering degree?
What pulls me towards a degree in EE is that fact that I could create a physical product, and then program it to work correctly. The Electrical Engineering program at my school requires two courses in C++, but the rest of the programming I do would be done on my own. Of course, I'm doing this as it is anyways.
Would doing a degree in EE with the end-goal of being a software dev be a bad idea?
Ideas and opinions, please.
