Mechanical Engineering or Chemical Engineering?
I am currently starting my way into majoring into Mechanical Engineering, but I am more intrigued with chemistry than physics. I planned on doing Chemical Engineering, but there isn't a variety of jobs like Mechanical Engineering offers, they can squeeze more into different areas. I'm thinking of swapping MechE for ChemE because I feel like I would thrive more, but the only thing that has me worried is finding a job in that area since it isn't as broad as MechE.4 replies
