FAQs I want to major in electrical engineering, but my parents want me to major in civil engineering. They’re concerned about future job opportunities with a civil engineering degree. What should I do?

The first step is to request an appointment with a career counsellor ASAP. Bear in mind that academic choices and career choices are not the same. If you’re a electrical engineering major, that doesn’t mean that you must become a electrical engineering. Many employers that recruit at various prestigious companies are more concerned with skills than your major. They are looking for strong communication, writing, analytical, and organisational skills—skills that your civil engineering degree can help you to develop.
