Yes, it is worth majoring in mechanical engineering. First the job market may be different when you graduate. You should major in a field that you are interested in. Engineering is always a good choice. When you graduate you will select among the current opportunities and perhaps something that does not exist today. Always be flexible. You are getting an education; you are not going to trade school.
