Engineering Physics or Chemical Engineering?

  1. Apr 3, 2012 #1
    I plan to attend Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, beginning next fall, but am having trouble deciding on a major.
    I was accepted as a Chemical Engineering major, but am now having some second thoughts. Throughout high school, physics has by far been the most interesting type of science to me, and I am really a more "math-minded" person. I would like some help on deciding which I should go for, and I already know that Chemical Engineering will typically pay more. However, I don't know which I should go for based on my interests. Please give any degree and job advice you can.

    P.S. Rose-Hulman has approximately a 99% job or graduate school placement rate, so I shouldn't really have a problem with getting somewhere directly following my completion of a Bachelor's degree.
