Hey everybody, I'm looking for some general guidance about breaking the 40 (or more) hour workweek as a chemical engineer. I'm currently majoring in chemical engineering, and so far I really enjoy learning the material and can see myself happily perusing a career in chemical engineering after I graduate. One thing that troubles me though, is that I hear a lot of engineers in general have long hours and workweeks. I really don't want to end up spending my entire life working away(I'm sure everybody else too), fortunately I am quite content with not making a lot of money. The solution to this isn't obvious though because I assume most careers are working for a large company where you don't get a say in how much you work. My question to you is do you have any tips/ advice on what type of work I could do as a chemical engineer to work less hours for less money. For example the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports median salary for ChemE's is 95k annually. I would be much happier making say 60-70k for a 25-30 hour week. Is there a way to work towards this dream or am I doomed to little free time like everybody else?
