My ds is in the position of having to make a decision as he has multiple appointments. So as we try to come alongside him in the decision making process, I am seeking the answer to a question. What are the typical opportunities to work in one's major? eg: He is interested in electrical engineering or something similar to that. I have done fairly extensive research on USMA and have the impression that whether you study engineering, history or Arabic, you are most likely to be crawling on your belly through the dirt/sand leading troops in combat. So if you do your five and separate from the military, does that mean you are trying to find a job in the civilian world with a stale degree and no experience in it? So since I have no direct experience with the Navy, I was wondering if some of the sage posters on here could give some direction as to the likelihood of a guy with an EE degree to actually do some EE type stuff? Even if this isn't possible, he is still committed to the academy route and is looking forward to serving his country. We are very proud of him and all his future classmates.
