Which of the following would it be feasible (or even possible) for me to switch to:

- Economics

- Computer science (theoretical)

- Computer science (applied)

- Applied and computational mathematics

- Chemical engineering

- Computer engineering

This is assuming I graduate having the standard three levels of calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and probability/statistics for engineers, and perhaps some operations research, numerical analysis, game theory and calculus of variations. Also, I will have learned a ton of programming languages, and taken some thermodynamics classes (which my school forces all engineers to take).

Also, I imagine if I would read a ton about either of these fields if I had a sufficient interest in it. So my problem would not be a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of the actual degree and courseload (and research) that is typical of grad school applicants in the field. I'm curious to know how much that would hurt my chances.

Also, please don't ask me to change my undergrad EE. I am determined to finish my undergrad in EE. That said, all feedback is appreciated! Thanks!
