The future of engineering.
Do you think AI would slowly make a lot of engineering fields redundant.
For instance although there are algorithms and codes for rudimentary optimization, much of the design optimization still happens by fea analysis, going back to the client with changes, meeting the constraints and all that.
As AI gets more robust, do you think a lot of mechanical engineering/civil engineering/aerospace engineering fields would stagnate?
I'm not scaremongering or running the "AI gonna steal muh job" tape. But I want to hear from people working in other companies or areas.
If you were 17 now, would you pick the same major you are now?
What's your take?
Note: I'm a working engineer. I'm not asking for advice on what major to pick, just curious how the landscape is changing in YOUR area of work.
