Understanding how important research is for graduate school as well as future careers, it's best to do as much research as possible. I'm majoring in ch e right now. I might switch from it.
My question is this:
does all of your research have to be specialized towards your area of study? Or do all engineering research do essentially the same things - prepare you for more important research projects.
I'm shaky about ch e right now. I might switch to mech e or even aero e. So I might have a chem internship/job and be a part of another area of research like aero e. That way I know what I really want. To be honest, I really don't like the tedious processes that goes into experiments in biology or chem labs. I mean in engineering, the idea usually sounds cool. But the processes are really long and boring. We're building a model rocket as a semester project in my aero e course, and that seems much more interesting than extracting and crystallizing protein or using linux to calculate relativistic effects on molecular behavior (two subjects that I picked up during summer and then ditched).
