I've gotten really interested in CFD and DFT recently. I have a BS in Chemical Engineering and will be 25 in about a month. Been working in the oil industry for the last 2 years and before that I worked in a carbon nanotube and graphene 'factory' for lack of a better term that I can come up with doing R&D intern type work. Working in the oil industry I have a LOT of free time. About 90% of my day is doing nothing at all, which I find unstatifying. To fill that time I've taken the hobby of doing CFD and DFT simulations. My company has shown interest in one of my simulations that and is offering to get me a master's in petroleum engineering which I'm happy to do but the job I'm going into is going to be just a higher paid version of what I'm doing now which isn't very fufilling. What avenues are best for pursuing a job in fluid simulation or chemical simulation? programming is something that has been self-taught and I have no idea what credentials would be necessary to apply or even where to apply too.
