is a computer hardware engineer better degree or electrical engineer?

I'm actually just curious, and before anyone says anything about career paths to me, I'm 25 and I am an attorney. I was just kinda curious what you guys thought was better.

As far as hard cash goes, probably computer hardware, if they're actually designing new hardware to release to the public. As far as job availability, probably electrical engineer

From what I've gathered so far, I'd say you could get both computer hardware, or electrical power entry level gigs with either degree. It's your work experience, master's degree and other certifications that are going to define which path you end up taking.
