Is it at all possible to go to grad school for engineering when you received a B.S. in a different field? For example, you major in Chemistry and then go to grad school for a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering. Would this be possible? How hard would it be? How many people have actually done this? Would this be a better option than trying to cram your engineering degree into 4/5 years? How much more valued is a M.S. in engineering than a B.S.? Rather than paying for 5 years of undergrad engineering, would going for a M.S. be better? In the chemistry major you complete all the same math and physics courses required by most all engineering degrees.
