Alternative Energy R&D

  1. Nov 13, 2012 #1

    I am currently an undergraduate Applied Physics Major. Ultimately I want to be an engineer with a focus on Alternative and Renewable Energy. As a career I would like to deal with more of the Research and Development end of this path. I understand that both Chemical and Mechanical Engineers are involved in this type of specialization. Which one would be a better choice? I would prefer Chemical because of the higher pay and great interest in Chemistry, but maybe it isn't the right choice.

    Would I have any difficulties trying to get into graduate school as simply a physics undergad (with chem minor)?

    *research is huge at my school so that wouldn't be an issue
