    Hello,
    Ever since I was young, I loved inventing (have patents pending) and engineering. I know Apple, among other tech companies, are hiring people who have started their own business and such. But I was also wandering what college degrees Apple wants in its Hardware Engineering (Creating new products, making products better, etc) division. I was going to register classes with the intention of majoring in Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Engineering and Management. Is there a better degree for such a position or will this suffice? Thank you.

    Go to http://http://www.apple.com/jobs/us/corporate.html and take a look
    at the various job listings. Apple, like most companies, will be rather specific with the degree and experience requirements for various open reqs. The few I glanced at wanted EE and CS with a few ME or physics degrees, all at varying levels (BS/MS/PhD). If you do go down the ME route, I would highly recommend a few extra classes in EE and/or CS above and beyond the normal engineering breadth requirements.

    So, bottom line is take a look at their open jobs and see which are most interesting to you and then see what the requirements are for those jobs.

    My $0.02 worth after working both in academia and industry for 25+ years.
