mechatronics and robot engineering sounds suitable (but I have no experience in them). and maybe take a business minor?

they don't do that in the college that i want to go (college is very close to me and pretty good). you cant do business minor with engineering in there aswell . any other ideas ?

I have and it says i can do either mechanical engineering ,electrical or computer science

but engineering is mostly about making and barely any programming so i dont know how i would program them .

there's also no engineering with business at the college of my chose.

i would say im pretty smart but when i want / need to be

Wdym college of ur choice?

U don’t need a degree in programming... u can teach urself (online courses - free or paid)

And besides, u can’t create a successful business on ur own (you’ll need a team)... and you’ll probably meet people at uni who can help!

i mean by college of my choice , the college i would want to go

i am actually learning a bit of programming now but seems really hard to teach in the advanced stages of it

i would start it first by myself and when it gets more difficult for me i would then get a team . probably friends from my classes in uni who i think are smart.

so do you think i should do mechanical engineering , electrical engineering , electronics and electrical engineering , computer engineering or computer science. lol so much choices

I would suggest u to look at the subjects you will learn on the college's website.

Most mechanical engineering courses require u too learn things like fluid dynamics and I dont think thats important to make robots. Just check the subjects, and if you think the subject mostly fits your career, go for it.

Tbh, I think finding a new college that offers mechatronics is a good option. (it covers mechanical/electronics/software) in general.

Aston University in Birmingham. my mom wouldn't want me going to diff. cities for uni and i wouldn't want that either. I would probably do mechanical engineering and self teach myself programming. in mech engineering , they also teach the electrical side of it as well. which is good

Lmao surely it’d be a better idea in somewhere like China where manufacturing is cheaper lol
