I want to make stuff for the brain. I'm not such a fan of the "give us the formula" approach with engineering and I've always been more of a thinker but I do love working with my hands and creating things. Ultimate goal is to come up with something that solves a neurological system issue and be well versed in materials enough to make it.
If I do chemical engineering will I be spending the rest of my life manufacturing other peoples ideas?
If i'm a physicist will I never get the chance to actually MAKE something?
I want to know materials so I am doing chemical engineering but it feels so systematic and uncreative? I'm not really enjoying it and at this point I don't feel like I could come up with some great idea I feel like I'll end up working at Ford motors or something.... I would just like some input please!
Physics or Engineering for a person who loves discovering new ways of doing things but also likes to DO it.
