Engineering is something that will always be around. So in terms of finding a job/career, there should not be much concern. However what field of Engineering you would like to study depends solely on what you would want to do for a job.
I studied Mechanical Engineering as I was always interested in designing machines. 10 years have gone by and I still have not lost even a bit of interest in what I do.
So ask yourself what interests you the most.
Cars,Ships, Airplanes, energy, construction,water, nuclear energy...the list goes on...
give it some thought and all the very best!

There are many specialties in engineering, and subcategories within those specialties. For example, I am a civil engineer and specialized in environmental engineering, specifically, cleanup of hazardous wastes in the environment. There are other environmental engineering specialty areas like water and wastewater treatment, air pollution control, pollution prevention, and solid waste engineering. Other areas within the category of civil engineering include structural, transportation, and geotechnical. Other broad disciplines of engineering (besides civil) include, electrical, mechanical, industrial, and chemical engineering.
