Which major should I pick if I want to design new innovative technology such as mobile phones and computers?
I start college next fall and I know exactly what I want to do with my life. I want to design and construct new electronics for a company such as Apple, HTC, LG, etc. I want to be included in new projects regarding new technology, and in fact manage and lead a team or company in producing them.
