Does the military use Eletrical, Computer engineering, or Computer Science?
I am planning on doing Army ROTC in college and majoring in either Eletrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer science, and (maybe just maybe) Accounting. Does the military, more specifically the Army, use eletrical/computer engineer majors or computer science majors? I basically don't want to go to college and work my ass of in one of these fields then not use any of it,thus forget all I have learned, when I join the military. I am really interest in the Army since my father and brother are currently in. If i do ROTC, I would become an officer and I couldn't find any engineering jobs as an officer besides the Corps of Engineers which is more like civil engineering and "bomb-finding". So the underlying question, does the Army use any of the above engineers? Would I be better of joining the National Guard, Navy, or Air Force (since I'm pretty sure these branches use these kind of engineers)? I always wanted to join the Army to serve my nation and I always wanted to become an Engineer/ CS guy but it seems like those two options don't mix.
