Hello PF, I'm wondering if anyone has information about MSE careers and fields of work. I have been doing a ton of research into the differences between a degree in chemical engineering and one in MSE, and have found a veritable plethora of information. But one thing that still stands out in my mind, is that I have not talked to an actual materials engineer. Will I be working in a thermally insulated suit? Can I have a desk job? Can I work in a clean room? Will there be an opportunity for field work or travel? How about consulting? What are my career choices for B.S.e vs M.S.e? I have exhausted the web resources for various universities as well as bls.gov. I honestly just want to talk to people that are working: developing, researching, managing, etc. Also is there any start-up potential? I've heard of some guys developing a surfboard material and launching a startup, is this the exception or the norm? Any input will be appreciated by myself and others! Thanks.
