Welcome to the developer community :)

I would recommend enjoying as best you can this period where you have the time to pursue your interests. The deeper you get in your career the more skilled you are, but the less time you have.

Focus not on a technology, but a goal. I imagine you got into engineering because you want to make things? What things? Join an existing project or start your own, work with others or work solo, however you feel is best towards accomplishing the useful or creative thing you're imagining. The technologies (and soft skills) you learn to reach that goal will be guaranteed to be useful and valuable because they stem from doing a useful thing. (Not to mention finished projects look good on resumes.)
