Is Mechanical Engineering for Me?
I want to go into engineering but am a little doubtful about which branch of engineering I take. I was hoping you could help me. I would like to go into a field that allows me to build and experiment but mostly mechanical stuff, so that I can build machines (not big ones) and will also be able to design its software. For example, if I were to build a robot (a very simple one) I would like to know how to control it, how to input into it or a remote that controls it to go forward or backward. I was thinking mechatronics. Is that a suitable field for me?
