Mechanical Engineering Combinations?

Recommended Posts

Okay so I am currently attending school to become a Mechanical Engineer. I really want to take this one step further and double major. I am wondering what kind of double majors people can come up with. What other major could I pick up that would make sense in terms of a career? I am very interested in pretty much all sciences and business alike. I have been considering something like economics, business, marine biology, international business or chemistry. Feel free to tell me your opinions on that.

I received by B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, i added on a double minor towards the end with biology and bioengineering. If I could do anything over, i would have done a Mech E/Biology or biochemistry double major. Mixing Mech E with any science is an excellent idea. I have noticed with biology (currently biomed E master's student) that having a background in engineering, puts a whole new perspective on how you understand biological systems. The combination of the fields is growing exponentially, and doing so yourself only adds to your skill set.

International business could also be a money shot, since the global market is obviously where the future is headed. As far as business, a double major would be nice, however, it may be more worth your while to see if you can tack on the extra MBA at the end. Chemistry like biology could be useful as well, but you may be doing a little more work than necessary considering your knowledge would be closely allighned with chemical engineering.

Hope this helps....clearly I am biased towards biology.
