Hi Andrew,

I majored in Computer Engineering, so I learned about electronics and software. Unfortunately, I lack mechanical engineering knowledge. To have an all-around engineering education to prepare you for diabetes (or any medical) technology development, I recommend that you major in BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING.
Here's something I found on colleges in your area:

You must be good in math and sciences (physics, chemistry, biology) !!!

Cheers,
Gil
