Hello, I need some help trying to decide my future degree. Any comments would be appreciated! My History: I want to dedicate my career innovating Electrochemical technologies (Fuel Cells, Batteries, Solar Cells, etc...). Before entering college, I originally applied as a "Chemical Engineering major (B.S.)" but later found out chemical engineers are more associated with learning about Process Control/Operation and "Materials Science & Engineering (B.S.)" is a more relevant major for working with electrochemical technologies. However, my institution does not offer this major, and I switched to "Chemistry major (B.S.)" thinking that chemistry is probably the next most relevant. Current Problem: Fast forward 4 years. I am going to take my GRE and apply for graduate schools soon in the Fall. As a chemistry major and from all the internships I have done, I realize i do not like to work in a wet-lab (goggles, lab coats, gloves) environment but enjoy dry-lab (just goggles) very much. At the same time, I still want to work with electrochemical technologies because I want to develop or lead a team to develop electrochemical technologies that may one day solve all our energy needs <-- (at least that is the dream!). Also, is it possible to achieve such an endeavor without working in a wet-lab environment? (I do not want to work in a wet-lab environment due to the hazards and dangers that it poses. I have known colleagues who have been injured by the negligence of others.) Right now, I do not know what type of graduate programs to apply to. I know I will be applying for an advanced "Materials Science/Engineering" degree since it is the most relevant to my dream career work. Should I apply to a Masters of Science program or a Masters of Engineering program? or Do I need a PhD for my dream career goals? (I want to focus more on engineering/technical work than research.) Any suggestions? Thank you for reading my concerns by the way!
