I think this is pertinent: http://theartorder.com/2012/03/16/th...-of-knowledge/
It's interviews with artists who are very very knowledgeable about things that are not regular art. I think being an artist with an engineering degree could give you an edge. Or maybe you'll decide to be an industrial designer or an architect. Also, don't grab the first impressive technical sounding class you find, look at different programs and many jobs. Maybe you'll decide chemistry is more your cup of tea than building engineering, or maybe medical imaging, or accounting or being a medical technician or a radiologist. You never know until you look a little bit closer.
