Hey. There are currently two degrees i am strongly considering taking next year, and chemical engineering is one of them. Reasons for my choice:
Now, if i did go for this, id make it a double degree and also do a BSc majoring in pure (maybe applied) math. Would this be a good choice; would it benefit my engineering career?
My second question: would it be beneficial to go further than just a bachelors degree, and go for Masters, or even a phD? Is further study usually for those looking to go into academia/research, or will it help my career?
All input is greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance,

My aunt is a chemical engineer and works for the DoD. Her degree was in Electrical Engineering and ended up as a chemical engineer. They later paid for her to get her masters in Chemical Engineering.
So thats always an option is to wait for a company to pay for you if you plan on joining a bigger company.

Ah ok. What about the pure math, anyone know if that would be beneficial? Is the math covered in the BEng degree sufficient, or is it a case of "the more math the better"?
