I do some programming but I also deal with networks and 2nd and 3rd level tech support. I got my degree in computer engineering. I was an electrical engineer to begin with but decided to change over because I didn't enjoy all the electrical stuff. I didn't go into compute science because of the reason millertime mentioned. The tech field isn't quite the best place to be unless you have something substantial to back it up.
I would stick with the engineering route. Engineers have a good strong base from which they can do just about anything. Stick it out but maybe take some other courses if you get the oppurtunity just to broaden your horizons.
