Tyree:

When deciding what type of engineering you should go into ask yourself two questions:

1. What type of Engineering would I have the most fun doing? Do not limit yourself to Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

2. Do I prefer a more abstract world or a more tangible world? Electrical Engineering is much more abstract than Mechanical Engineering (at least classical ME). You can not see those little electrons doing their thing.

My father was an EE. I am a ME.

Before taking any decision on this matter, first you should check what type of work attracts you more as it is not only about grabing a job in that field but your whole career will depend on it.
If you just want to have some kind of technical knowledge, you can opt for any Engineering course as a number of subjects are common in all engineering trades except some specializations.
