    He's probably already taking that into consideration, but I've made enough short-sighted decisions in my own life not to just assume...
    I think this is the first time anyone here has ever started out with "not trying to be a jerk," and actually came off as not being a jerk; I agree with you.

    Re: Mechanical Engineering and MIS Questions

    My son is in his 3rd of employment with a degree in MIS. He doesn't do much programming at all but has taken on anything and everything with the company to keep his resume attractive. He likes what he does and has been promoted twice.

    Re: Mechanical Engineering and MIS Questions

    Thanks for all the different perspectives. I will share this thread with him. I remember being 20 and not really having any clue what I wanted to do. I am over 40 now and some days it still feels that way.

    Just FYI about Java vs .Net, my employer is primarily . Net. We still have some Java but going forward most of the work is .Net for the back end and Angular JS on the front. We tend to have a little of everything.

    Re: Mechanical Engineering and MIS Questions

    Just want to point out that MIS is definitely the best Business degree you can get at ISU. The average offer rivals most engineering and the number of offers is huge per person because it is such a small degree.

    The best way I can put this is that almost every company that comes to the Engineering Career fair also comes to the Business one, looking for MIS guys.

    Even the most dumb guys in my MIS classes had multiple full time offers coming out of Senior year. (Which is good and bad in my opinion)
