I'm currently a 17 year old trying to apply for various universities in the UK, looking at various factors like job prospects, interests to choose a subject to study. I'm currently looking at two possibilities: either chemistry or chemical engineering. This is where the 'problem' comes in for me. i consider myself quite interested in theoretical chemistry in general, but also interested in ensuring a future in job prospects. This is where the 'interest; in chemical engineering came in. I have seen a lot of people mention that you shouldn't go into science just for money. I do consider this aspect, but i still do not think that a person should be just following his dreams blindly i.e. some realism in terms of getting a well paid job, getting a house etc should come in. I am fairly interested in the application of calculus in to chemistry/physics, and although my mathematics isn't exactly top-notch compared to 'further; maths people that are here with me in my school i am willing to work hard to catch up. Any advice people..?
