Biochemical engineering or chemical engineering with minor in nuclear engineering

  1. Jul 16, 2010 #1
    Hey, I'm entering into my junior year at the University. I'm a chemical engineering student. Right now I've been following the biology track in my program. Recently my college has developed a nuclear engineering minor which seems very intriguing.

    If anyone can give me any incite on which field has more opportunities in terms of employment, research possibilities, and even future salary prospects would very much appreciate it (for example, entering into engineering management).

    Currently, I really don't like biology that much. Its not the worst subject in the world (literature shall forever remain in my heart as the most painful subject ever). And it's not that I'm bad at it. I just rather solve problems then memorize information. However, I believe there are a lot more opportunities in the field when it comes to pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, alternative energy, food processing, bioreactors and other interesting topics if I pursue biology track. Although I haven't taken a course yet in nuclear engineering, it seems more interesting.
