Sameh asked Amy Betz, Kansas State University AddedFriday, September 29, 2017 at 7:24 AM Hello I wanna ask you: I'm studying mechatronics engineering and I wanna change to mechanical. What are your thoughts on this?

I think you should do whatever works best for you. Mechanical Engineering is a very broad field with lots of opportunities. I think it is important to remember that your degree doesn’t define you and you can still branch out to new areas post-degree.
