I've heard good and bad things about engineering degrees. I'm leaning more towards Industrial, since building things doesn't grab my attention.Industrial has more of a business aspect to it. I'm sure it will be beneficial for what I am looking to do, if not, it is always a solid back up plan.

P.S . My undergrad degree is in Finance & Marketing
True engineering is not about building things. It's purely MATH. And we're not talking college algebra. Have you taken calc II, vector calc, differential equations? If you stopped at calc I, you will surely be in for a rude awakening.

No, it's not. Law job market is horrible right now...

IT is the way to go. Way more jobs than available talent.
I have passed calculus II, but that was the furthest I went since no additional math was needed for my major.

Engineering IMO is definitely on the rise, and the jobs are there. Another reason why I want to get into it.
