I have been debating lately about what I kind of field I want to go into once I gradute college. I will describe my situation and what choices I'm thinking of making and would love any advice and input. I am currently a junior and in the BS/MS program pursuing a masters in chemcial engineering. I also have a minor in business administration. I did internships in a pharma company and an oil refinery and while both were enjoyable neither really suited me. After doing some research I became interested in nuclear fusion and alternative energy and could see myself going into that field. Ideally I wouldn't mind working on the ITER project or some other nuclear fusion technology. But a thousand other more qualified people are trying to get on the same project so I'm not getting my hopes up. I have also become interested in General Atomics GT-MHR technology (a new nuclear reactor). I came to realize that all the things I was really interested had something to do with nuclear energy on some level. So what do I do now. I can finish getting my masters in chemical engineering which I will most likely do. My school doesn't offer a nuclear engineering degree and I have a full scholarship here so I don't want to switch to another school for Nuclear Engineering. However, if my chem e degree won't get me into the nuclear field I would consider it. Should I just get a bachelors in chemical and take some classes related to nuclear engineering that can transfer to another school once I graduate and then get a bachelors in nuclear there. Or can I get a bachelors or a masters in chem e and then get a masters in nuclear engineering as well once I am done here? Really it all comes down to one key question, how useful is my chemical engineering degree going to be if I try to go into the nuclear engineering field once I graduate. And not just the process engineering involved with flows around nuclear reactors but a role in the actual design and physics behind some nuclear technologies such as fusion, nuclear pulse propulsion, etc. Thanks for the help and sorry for such a long post.
