As you can tell from the title, I am curious to the advantages/disadvantages of majoring in Chemical engineering or Electrical engineering in regards to nanotechnology, as well as other job opportunities if nanotech doesn't fall through(currently a freshman in college). I recently read a thread where someone mentioned that job outlooks from when you are in school will change four years down the line. Although it is common knowledge, I guess i never really took it seriously. My goals are to basically to major in CE with a minor in maybe physics or something that will go along with my major, and work in nanotech as a means of using technology to benefit medicine(trying to cure diseases etc.), but what if in four years this is still just a fantasy, or perhaps the job outlook is bleak for that type of goal. So now I have began looking at backup plans. It would seem that an EE degree has many more options available that could still come close to my goals but does not focus on the chemistry that is primarily used in nanotechnology in regards to the medical side. I have a love for both science and technology, and I feel that nanotech is the best common ground for both, and can hopefully help me with my goals. Any comments/tips/info will be greatly appreciated.
