Mechanical Engineering vs. Electrical Engineering

 These two branches of engineering are so famous and high in demand that every engineering student wants to know that which among these two is better? Both of these branches of engineering are high in merit in all universities all over the world. It’s really hard to choose one which is better among these two disciplines. I interviewed almost fifteen mechanical and electrical engineers before writing about this issue. Those who were mechanical engineers, they said mechanical engineering is better while those who are electrical engineers, they said that electrical engineering is better. So Mechanical engineering vs Electrical engineering – the debate goes on.
Here I would like to present a more logical difference between these two disciplines of engineering and I hope it will help all young students and prospective students to get to know about these two branches of engineering. Because in the end, I personally think it’s someone’s interest which makes him/her choose between mechanical or electrical engineering.

Actually ME and EE are near polar opposites in the engineering world. ME is based on the mechanics field of physics, while EE is based on the electricity and magnetism field of physics. I have made things quite simple here. If you love solving problems in Mechanics portion of physics then definitely mechanical engineering is for you and if you feel attraction in solving problems in electricity and magnetism then electrical engineering can be a right choice for you. Mechanical Engineering takes you towards things involving machines, mechanisms, physics (forces etc.), manufacturing and production, liquids, gases and more tangible things. While on the other hand, Electrical Engineering takes you towards things involving power, cabling, fuses, electrical appliances production, circuits, semiconductors and generally electricity and energy management and application in a larger scale.
Let us be more practical and look deep into future. Being a mechanical engineer you will learn to build car’s body and engine while being an electrical engineer you will be able to handle/build/manage the car's battery.
Above discussion was dealing with the debate of Mechanical engineering vs Electrical engineering on educational basis and basic differences in their structure. Talking about career opportunities, jobs and pay differences, I will keep things straight for you. In this modern world, you will never be paid higher or lower based on your qualifications. Believe me it’s so true in this world these days. You are paid based on your technical knowledge and experience which you get. So don’t worry about job and pay at this stage. Just choose that branch of engineering which you find interesting. It will help you to do more and learn more within circle of your interest.

I hope this article will help you solve this historical engineering puzzle of Mechanical engineering vs Electrical engineering. Now decision is all yours. Choose wisely because this will be a life time decision for you. You are going to define your future so define it wisely. Don’t forget to leave your comments if you need any help and to learn more.
