In my engineering degree tier list video where I talked about the best engineering degrees this was one of the degrees that I mentioned. You don’t necessarily want to go for the highest paying engineering degrees because engineering majors already make really good money. If you’re going to go to university and get a college degree in engineering, realize it will be extremely rigorous unless you’re a genius and for that reason it won’t be for everyone. But if you can do it you should choose the best FOR YOU, the one that fits YOU the best, because most engineering degrees are good overall.

    Me halfway through my EE degree watching this video reminding myself it’ll all be worth it in the end

  2. Muruga Velan on January 19, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    I dont like math but I’m majoring in computer engineering hahahaha

  3. Adithya Om on January 19, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    This was like, exactly what I was searching for, thanks alot!

  4. Daniel Lofaro on January 19, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    The main problem about getting into engineering, or any other major in college, is simply that college is academically oriented. It will not prepare you so much for the work in the industry. Greetings from Germany

  5. KalleKiwi on January 19, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    1:53 where can i find that picture?

  6. A on January 19, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    I want to do engineering but my math is HORRIBLE, like I have to use a calculator to do basic multiplication rip

  7. Rachman01 on January 19, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    EE here, regret it. Should’ve gone into CS while I had the chance. Trying now entering my mid career, gonna suck!

  8. Helios on January 19, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    I just finished my first semester of electrical engineering and I have to say I really learned a lot, both literally and overall.

    It really is soul crushingly difficult, especially if you aren’t the sharpest tool in the shed, but I keep telling myself that I have to do this, because I know if I won’t be able to finish at least bachelors (though preferably I would like to finish masters as well) I won’t be able to sleep well for the rest of my life.

    I’m really entrepreneur minded, that’s mostly why I want to become an engineer, so I can really be part of something important, meaningful.

    Establishing a successful business sometime in the future is my biggest dream, mainly because I’ve always dreamed of being someone like Elon Musk, Bill Gates, etc. And yes I know these are naively overpositive dreams, but I hope to at least achieve something like that, even if at a smaller scale.

    Back to the topic tho, I do suffer a lot in university, it is extremely difficult and it can get depressive fast, but you just have to keep on going, because I know that if I successfully do this 4-6 years through to the end, I will never regret it, and as years pass I’ll think back to those measly few years that I spent sweating tears and blood as just the start of a whole new part of my life.

    All I can hope now is that as time passes I’ll get more used to the stress and adapt, and in the end really shape into that proper engineer that I always wanted to become.

    This is only the foundation of my new life, and I await its true beginning. I wonder who will I become, many years to come.

    Electrical engineers rise up.

  10. Acyl The Great on January 19, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    Wag kayo papaniwala sa sahod! HAHAHAH sa pilipinas mahirap pa sa 20k per month guys. But if your willing to take it fight for it.

  11. Maruf Rahman on January 19, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    BRO I Am studying electrical engineering ,but i am confused, which is the best major field in this side,and high demand in future??please suggest me brooo…………..

  12. Yuhichangedmyname on January 19, 2022 at 6:06 pm

    And thus money does buy happiness

  13. John Nguyen on January 19, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    i’m about to get my BS in EE in about 1 month 🙂

  14. Chac Mool on January 19, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    The difficulty of an engineering bachelor’s is not due only to the fundamental difficulty of the material but also the total credits required which is slightly above those for most all other bachelor degrees. There will be a few semesters where you will be expected to carry not four but five courses.

  15. Julie Sophie on January 19, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    Can you please make a video about energy system engineering? Love your videos

  16. ? on January 19, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    I’m an electrical field engineer I work in power distribution and on critical infrastructure. I have 0 degrees and barely graduated high school. I make a little over 6 figures base pay and can make way more if agree on flying out of state (Covid no thanks). To anyone who doesn’t believe in yourself keep your head up try harder you don’t need a fancy degree to make a good living I have 0 debt to pay to school and will be buying properties once I find the right market at age 24. If you guys wanna skip the college stuff just find a field job you’ll do fine. But congrats to whoever is headed down the electrical path it’s a VERY bulletproof career choice 🤘

  17. Ahmed Bouzertit on January 19, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    Can you recommend the best specialization in your opinion!!!

  18. jhanneah flores on January 19, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    Pls make a video about electronics engineer

  19. Habiba Elshazly on January 19, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    Electrical engineering or computer engineering?

  20. Winsen Lance Ibrao on January 19, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    I’m a EE freshman student but I’m not that good in math, should I continue it? I’m scared that I can’t pass it. Any comments pls?

  21. Go.brrrrrrr on January 19, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    im starting my degree in EE next year, wish me luck 🙂

  22. daman redar nishu on January 19, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Electricy is literally one of the parts of physics I hate so much. I dont like it but I like working on anything but electricity as in I like creating electronic stuff but I dont know if I am just scared of it or if I hate it. I had an exam last year in 11th grade about it and I thought it was the hardest and unenjoyable thing.

  23. Velocity on January 19, 2022 at 6:19 pm

    i wanna go into entrepreneurship under an ee degree, and maybe an mba

  24. Jevie Kelly Santos on January 19, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    I am confuse on what engineering course I am going to. Either civil or elctrical engineering. Next year, my college life will start.

  25. Scotty on January 19, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    So I’m an electrician currently and love my job and the science behind electricity as a whole. I’m very good at math and have a genuine desire to study electricity deeply. Is this the path for me?

  26. Deeznuts ha gadae Jo mama on January 19, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    Can you become an software engineer with electrical engineering degree

  27. bluestratos1901 on January 19, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    I just started going back to school to be an electrical engineer right now the dream is to be in robotics and micro electronics but I’m low man on the totem pole just starting differentials and then moving into electromagnetic physics next semester lol I hope to stay on the robotics path but I’m already fiddling with an idea I came up with last year and that idea led me to want to become an electrical engineer so I’m pretty driven right now.

  28. Shruti Jeyaraman on January 19, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    Wow, I am currently persuing a degree in EE and this video served as a great reassurance that I’m doing something right. Loved your analysis, keep up the great work!

  29. bilal abdulla on January 19, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    iam an electrical engineering student but iam worry about it evry body says that it is not good carrier you won’t reach your dreams with electrical engineering it is worthless
    what do u think ?
    what is your advice for me?

  30. manisha chand on January 19, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    How to apply forunivercity

  31. Wehraboo Hans on January 19, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    Lowest job satisfaction: "health sciences & technologies"

    I’m studying electronic technology in college and planning to go study electrical engineering in university. My girlfriend is studying biomedical analysis and is in her 3rd year and most of her cohort is already regretting their choice. It’s sad because it’s a fucking hard degree to get and it’s in her 3rd year she realised how few doors open and she’ll probably be stuck with the same job with about no chances to get something better except medicine (which is ridiculously hard to get).

  32. Haseeb Khan on January 19, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    The reason electrical engineers make such good entrepreneurs is that they are able to identify gaps in the market, because they have an understanding of what people want to buy and what is possible to create. They are generally able to figure out how to develop the product on their own and then all that is required is to create a sufficient business model around the product. Its why I decided to pick electrical engineering as a student.

  33. Habanero on January 19, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    What if I didn’t qualify for it and wanna do it

  34. Kafir Mohallida on January 19, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    EE is a super duper degree out there 😀😀

    Wait until everyone gets into digital logic, antennas, and linear systems lol

  37. Swimming in the Cesspool of Stupidity on January 19, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    NO !!! Unless U go to the TOP 10 programs

  38. Hello Hello Again on January 19, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Hey Shane im a little late but im trying to chooose between electrical engineering or aerospace engineering. Im aprocahing college and im havig trouble to decide. Im really passionate about both but i cant eactly make up my mind

  39. Tyanne Fong on January 19, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    lmao i came here for reassurance

  40. Benji on January 19, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    nice video. I like the objectivity and the numbers, even if they are not extremely accuate.

  41. T. On on January 19, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    My son is about to start his freshman year in the next couple of weeks as an electrical engineer students. I’d like to surprise him with a new laptop. Can you advise me on the recommended specs? Thanks and please keep producing these videos.

  42. Swimming in the Cesspool of Stupidity on January 19, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    EE sux !!!

  43. Steve on January 19, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Getting to study Electrical Engineering doesn’t guaranty you to graduate to pursue another career. At my college, they give only the degree based on merit. Thanks for these YouTube videos but you’ve made my life worse.

  44. Brian Bruno on January 19, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    I’m in grade 10 and I like maths and physics more than any other subject except for maybe P.E, and I’ve been looking into what degrees I should get, I’ve looked at aerospace engineering cos I like flying stuff but I’m not sure how much I would enjoy it. My dad has recommended electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and computer engineering, but I’m not into IT so I don’t I’ll take computer engineering. I honestly don’t know what to take and I’ve been watching ur vids to get a better idea of engineering in general.

  45. Stacy A on January 19, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    I just entered a two year program at my community college for my AAS in electrical engineering. I changed my major in the health industry after getting a job in the semiconductor business that really sparked my interest. It’s terrifying yet exciting moving forward with this. This video just motivated me more. Thank you!

  46. Michelle Le on January 19, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    My friend would be in the regretted list. Can’t find a job since graduating may 2020. Well no relevant work experience as wasn’t told by anyone. The only jobs the advisor even mentioned was on campus that any major can do. She’s not the only one she knows so she doesn’t feel as left out. She may or may not change majors.

  47. Kenny Kash on January 19, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Great summary. I’ve been a power engineering consultant for 8 years now with a focus on electrical distribution systems. The pay & benefits are very good, and there are plenty of job opportunities. The work is fulfilling and interesting. Travel opportunities are good. One of the better decisions I’ve made in my life.

  48. Rock Lee on January 19, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Can i just go to trade school instead of college for an elictrical engineering job

  49. ManlyMan on January 19, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    Hi

  50. LostInThe0zone on January 19, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Ironic. Before I received my EE degree, I was a parking lot attendant. You are spot on for job satisfaction.
    I am retired now, but I was very satisfied with my decision to study for this degree.
    Yes, it was a difficult course of study and there were a lot of drop outs. But the work was always interesting, if a bit stressful, and financially rewarding.
