Engineering left the most # of doors open. I'm working as an IT security consultant, first job, same company since 2005(took year off after school to play poker ). It honestly just gives you so many options, just look at this... most people who flunk out of eng can go comp sci, poli sci, arts, business and so on... it's very difficult to go the other way, even impossible for arts/humanities who don't have the pre-reqs.
OP you cannot go wrong being an engineer. Put your eng together with a technical MBA and you are guarantee'ing yourself a bright future. It is all up to the individual... If you're smart, handle people well you will get paid well. I have no regrets taking engineering. 40-50K starting is very good, if you are good your salary will come. Take all posts with a grain of salt and ego.
