There are two Engineering degrees that are extremely general: Chemical and Mechanical.
As a Chemical Engineer, you will learn about physics and mechanics, electrical systems, thermodynamics, material science & eng., heat and mass transfer, etc. Basically you get all the tools regarding applied science.
Philosophy on the other hand gives you a strong background on logic, ethics, metaphysics, epistimology, etc. which give you an understanding of the world.
Combine the knowledge of applied science with the understanding of your human environment and you become a decision maker.
At this level of intelligence you have more of an employer than an employee.
If you feel that you'll be unemployable that is great: long live entrepreneurship, long live greatness, long live capitalism, long live America.
