Hi, Both Mechanical and Electrical Engineering are Core Engineering and both of them have excellent scope for opportunites for Jobs as well as Higher studies. In general, Electrical is considered a little tough to study and score compared to Mechanical. 

But the choice should be based on your personal interest or based on tests like Psychometric Tests which will help you find your personal traits suitable for a specific engineering. Prepare for your GRE exams right from your 2nd year and score well in Academics and GRE if you want to get scholarships. ( Aim for 80% in your BE and about 320 range in GRE).
