So I am currently at Arizona State, where they offer a bachelor's degree in mechanical and automotive engineering. My future plans are to work for a car company for most of my life. I've been told by others and my dad that Mechanical is the way to go, given that I have more job opportunities if I ever want to move away from the automotive industry. I don't find the point on taking very hard theoretical classes for MechE that I will most probably not use when I can get more practical and hands-on classes with an Automotive engineering degree, supposing that ultimately, my only goal is to work for a car company. Do you guys have any sort of feedback that you could give me with this decision?? Thanks.
