    major selection advice

    I am currently in the Navy taking online classes. I am in my second year of my Bachelor in electrical and computer engineering with the University of Arizona. I am interested in getting into some sort of robotics or actual building of electrical systems and not so much the coding aspect. The U of A doesn't offer a mechanical engineering bachelors online but they offer a masters.

    My question is would it better for me to get my bachelors in electrical and computer engineering and then get a masters in mechanical engineering? Is there any added benefit to getting a bachelors and masters in electrical and computer engineer and then getting a second masters in mechanical? Thanks for the help.

    I doubt it, I've never seen an employer requirement for that education combination requirement. I did know a person with a BS in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, but that did not position them better in the company nor more money.

    If you target and obtain government employment, often one is compensated based on total education achievement.

    If interested in management route an MBA would likely be more beneficial
